Tag to be registered       : iu-Latn

English name of language   : Inuktitut in Latin script
Native name of language (transcribed into ASCII): inuktitut

Reference to published description of the language (book or article):

Inuktitut is customarily written both in Latin script and in the 
Canadian Aboriginal Syllabic script.

It is often required, when matching languages, to select a subset of 
documents written in a particular script. When looking up language 
resources, this is even more important, so that text in different 
scripts is not mixed.

Thus, it is important to be able to distinguish between scripts used
in writing iu: iu-Latn vs. iu-Cans.
