Language name correction (Southern Luri/luz)

Hi. The Southern Luri language(luz) name is misspelled and needs to be corrected. How can I change it from "لئری دوٙمینی" to "لری دۊمنی"?

It's the name built into MediaWiki for the "#language:" parserfunction, and its source is the name imported from Unicode CLDR, where it was vetted. It seems that the name is correct is I look at Wikipedia which cites it as well. The difference being in the optionaml notation of vowels, which may be simplified (your proposal) or more advanced. I do not see a typo, and the CLDR vetted data is considered reliable (a defacto worldwide standard for translation of language names, beside the ISO 639 standard and the IANA database for BCP47 that just give English names). If I look at Glottlog and the Linguist list, we see several orthographic variants for the native language name (they vary depending on authors, sources, or time, or location of the author using an orthographic system from several possible countries).
