CLDR Ticket #9421(closed dtd: fixed)
Add attribute for primarily spoken languages
|Reported by:||mark||Owned by:||mark|
Description (last modified by mark) (diff)
We have an artificial convention for languages that are primarily spoken, where we set the writing percent down to 5% if it is above; otherwise the writing percent reflects the literacy rate.
I think would be cleaner to interpret the data and easier to maintain the data if we had a separate field:
<languagePopulation type="gsw" writingPercent="5" populationPercent="65" officialStatus="de_facto_official" references="R1006"/> <!--Swiss German-->
<languagePopulation type="gsw" literacyPercent="99" writingPercent="5" populationPercent="65" officialStatus="de_facto_official" references="R1006"/> <!--Swiss German-->
- The literacyPercent would be literacy in that language (eg the ability to read/write fluently), and default to the literacy for the country.
- The writingPercent would instead be the percentage of time the average user of the language reads or writes that language, as opposed to reading or writing another. We'd set it (as before) to 1-5% if we know that it is not primarily a written language, but we don't have any more precise data.
