Can you add Polynesian French and New Caledonian French?
Thank you!

Well, I don't know if they exist in the sense of they're widely recognized varieties of French, but I would think they exist in the sense that it's the French spoken in each of those places. I'm sure even if it's based on hexagonal French, there are slight variations due to other linguistic influences?

I just found this and this, which claims that Polynesian French is at most 50% mutually intelligible with Standard French(!), so I guess you're right.

English name: K'iche' Mayan
Native name: Qatzijob'al
ISO: quc
Flag: Mayan flag (same as for Kaqchikel and Yucatan Mayan)

English name: Tzotzil Mayan
Native name: Bats'i K'op
ISO: tzo
Flag: Ditto

English name: Tzetzal Mayan
Native name: Batz'il K'op
ISO: tzh
Flag: Ditto

Maybe we can group the Mayan languages under the heading Mayan Languages (like we did for Yupik)? If we do that, we can probably drop the "Mayan" from the English name of these.

I also wouldn't mind splitting up Tibetan into at least the following dialects:


English name: Standard Tibetan
Native name: བོད་སྐད་
ISO: bo-S
Flag: same as Tibetan

English name: Central Tibetan
Native Name: དབུས་གཙང་སྐད་
ISO: bo-C
Flag: Ditto

English Name: Amdo Tibetan
Native name: ཨ་མདོ་སྐད
ISO: adx
Flag:

English name: Khams Tibetan
Native name: ཁམས་སྐད་
ISO: khg
Flag:

I can't find the native name for Khams quite yet. I'll keep looking.

And suggestions for the flags of the last two would be great.

Just a reminder to everyone: in order to keep the language list from becoming too long and unwieldy, please only request languages and dialects that either you speak or are learning.

That's good, and thank you. It was just meant as a reminder, not to single anyone out or lay blame. As much as it'd be awesome to add every language and dialect to the language list (both the one found here and on the profile page), the more we add, the longer it'll take for the Language List page to load and the more you'll have to scroll through on the profile page to get to a language like say Zulu.

Well, there's the "find on this page" function in most browsers now-a-days, so scrolling isn't so much of an issue.
