Ah.  For a language to be registered in 639-3 it must exist, that's all.
(Well, if it happens to be extinct, the extinction must have happened
after 1949, unless it appears on a select list of important extinct
languages -- I don't know if that list is still being maintained.)

That would be just "gagauz", option 2 on my list of choices.

But that, he realized, was a foolish            John Cowan
thought; as no one knew better than he          cowan at ccil.org
