Taraskievic published the orthography in the Latin script as well as
in Cyrillic script. It can be considerad as codification.

Besides this there are at least 4 teachbooks with Latin orthography
by different authors published between 1930th and 1960th.

This makes a separate script, but the language is one.

Yes it's the orthography that varies here I gather, not the language.
Thanks for clarifying this.
