Examples of "macrolanguage"
"Ethnologue" (2015) divides the Oromo macrolanguage into four languages
[zza] A macrolanguage. Population total all languages: 1,640,000. Comments: Includes: Northern Zazaki [kiu], Southern Zazaki [diq].
In addition, there are 2 other languages without individual codes closely associated, but not part of, this macrolanguage code.
In addition, there are 8 individual codes not part of this macrolanguage but they are categorized as mixed languages.
In addition, there is 1 other language without individual codes closely associated, but not part of, this macrolanguage code.
In addition, there is a language without an individual code assigned, which it is not part of this macrolanguage.
In addition, there is an individual code not part of this macrolanguage because it is categorized as a historical language.
Glottolog cites "Macro-Swedish" as a macrolanguage including Swedish proper, the Scanian dialects, the Jamtlandic dialects and the Dalecarlian dialects.
There are 2 other related languages that are not considered part of the macrolanguage under ISO 639:
is the ISO 639-3 language code for Konkani macrolanguage. There are 2 individual language codes assigned.
In ISO 639-1 there is 'ms', ISO 639-2 there are two codes: 'may'/'msa'. In ISO 639-3, 'msa' is defined as a "macrolanguage".
In contrast, the classification of individual languages within their macrolanguage is standardized, in both ISO 639-3 and the Language Subtag Registry.
There are fifty-six language codes in ISO 639-2 that are considered to be macrolanguages in ISO 639-3. The use of this category of macrolanguage was applied in "Ethnologue", starting in the 16th edition.
"A collective language code element is an identifier that represents a group of individual languages that are not deemed to be one language in any usage context." These codes do not precisely represent a particular language or macrolanguage.
The principal division between Mari varieties is the West and the East. According to the Soviet linguist Kovedyaeva (1976:9-15, 1993:163-164) the Mari macrolanguage is divided into four main dialects:
In Ethnologue and ISO 639-3, Asante is analysed as a dialect of Twi. Twi in its turn is a language belonging to the macrolanguage of Akan. In Glottolog Akuapem and Asante are found as dialects under the language Akan.
According to Lytkin (1966:44-49; 1976:106–115) and Teplyashina (1976:106–115) the Komi macrolanguage divided into four principal dialect groups or types depending on the development of Proto-Komi *"l".
Dialects of Nepali include Acchami, Baitadeli, Bajhangi, Bajurali, Bheri, Dadeldhuri, Dailekhi, Darchulali, Darchuli, Gandakeli, Humli, Purbeli, and Soradi. Doteli (Dotyali) is a closely related language which is included in the macrolanguage Nepali.
In Ethnologue and ISO 693-3 Akan is a macrolanguage that includes Twi and Fante. Akan is also the name of a language group that includes said macrolanguage and also Abron and Wasa. The language group of Akan is ordered under Central Tano, which also includes 8 more languages. This means that while they are all related, Abron and Wasa are not seen as dialects of Akan per se, but rather as sister languages. Ethnologue bases its classification on studies of mutual intelligibility and lexical similarity from a multitude of sources. However, Ethnologue does not always cite all sources and the classification is not final.
However, all such rankings should be used with caution. It is difficult to define the difference between a language and a dialect, or between a language and a macrolanguage; for example, Chinese is sometimes considered a single language and sometimes a macrolanguage whose many varieties are all independent languages. Any division of speakers among languages is the result of the classification of these speakers. Often such classifications are based on political or cultural factors. Although such classifications are not entirely arbitrary, it is not possible to devise a coherent linguistic set of criteria for the boundaries between languages.
