For Scandinavian (North Germanic) the code seems to be gmq. (wiki pages generally list the codes when they're available... surely I'm not the only one who's noticed this? :P)

OK, I've added that one. If anyone needs more, please look at this website: http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-5/id.php to find the family you desire and the 3 character code. You'll get better results if you do the leg work and I just have to do an update based on your information. If you leave it up to me, then I'm almost certain to eventually use the wrong code, or the wrong name.

+Scandinavian please

No such thing, I'm using the ISO standards, so you need to find what you want in this list: http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-5/id.php


gmq = north germanic then ;)

edit: I'm slow ...

When I click on the link (languagechallenge.surrealix.com) to see the participants and their languages, I am coming up with the old (2014-15) list. I tried clearing the data, but it doesn't help. Is the list going to be at a different site, or am I missing something?

Yes you're in the wrong place.

Yeah, yeah, we all want romance... but what languages do you want? :lol:


I obviously don't know what I'm doing, in romance or Romance.

I tried to register #roa, but got Romanian. And I can't find where the directions are that tell us how to un-register.
