In reaction to some comments in the discussion so far I decided to request
"only" one more variant subtag for a Resian minor local dialect, viz. the
Lipovaz dialect. It has enough phonetical, phonological and lexical
features to make it distinct from any other Resian local dialect and,
thanks to the efforts of Sergio Chinese, a considerable amount of written
documents is piling up. Apart from that, the Lipovaz dialect is already
known from samples of spoken language taken down in the 18th century.
