Concise comments please. Personally I think the comments field is WAY
too long and should be edited. It is too encyclopaedic. On the other
hand we could leave it alone and get this registered.
LANGUAGE SUBTAG MODIFICATION
Description: USSR Latin alphabet, as a reference to Historical Unified
Turkic Latin Alphabet used in the Soviet Union (1930s)
Comments: Popularized and widely used in the Soviet Union in the 1930s
among Turkic languages as part of USSR-wide policy of introducing
Latin-based alphabets in Turkic regions, on the basis of representing
equivalent phonemes in a unified fashion. Other names: (a) New (as of
1930s) Turkic Alphabet; (b) Birlәşdirilmiş Jeni
(1930larda) Türk Әlifbasь (Unified New (as of 1930s)
Turk(ic) Alphabet); (c) Unified Turkic Latin Alphabet; (d)
Jaŋalif (in Qazan Tatar: abbreviation of "New Alphabet").
Mainly meant to be used in historical, and academic discourse, and
possibly graphics-based republications of 1930s publications.
