> I'll be publishing a translation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in Neo (Los Aventuros de Alis in Marvoland) in Neo -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neo_(constructed_language) -- later this year or sometime next, and Neo hasn't got an ISO 639 language tag. I filed a request today with the ISO 639-3 authority for the tag "neu". Failing that we would need a subtag to "art" here... I guess neo1961 would do.I did look briefly at Neo. It does not seem to have a lot of users but I can't speak on this.It looks a bit like Italian to me (when I say it to myself aloud I can hear the Italian intonation pattern).But I am not suggesting Italian as a prefix; just making a comment about the apparent intonation.
> Editions of Alice in Scots, Ulster Scots, Sussex, and Appalachian are also in progress. For Scots and Ulster Scots we have "sco" and "sco-ulster" respectively. I could propose "sussex" for the first. For the second...?
If you need a reference, below are quick links I found courtesy of google:http://www.cas.sc.edu/engl/dictionary/dictionary.htmlhttp://www9.georgetown.edu/faculty/zanuttir/Appalachian%20project/current.htmlhttp://www9.georgetown.edu/faculty/zanuttir/Appalachian%20project/research.htmlhttp://www.eric.ed.gov/ERICWebPortal/search/detailmini.jsp?_nfpb=true&_&ERICExtSearch_SearchValue_0=ED323066&ERICExtSearch_SearchType_0=no&accno=ED323066)The georgetown info. suggests that there is at least more than one spoken variety and that jibes with what I know based on a relative who has a family member from East Tennessee.But I suppose you have enough information about it?Best,--C.
