I am currently updating the page Languages by language family. I am using Ethnologue as my main source of information on the language tree. Occasionally I am finding differences between the family lineage on Ethnologue, Wikipedia (en) and this page, eg ilo (Ilokano). The information on Ilokano agrees with the language list information, which is also listed as a source at the top of the page. Is there any reason for choosing linguist list over Ethnologue as a source for the lineage? Will avoid the Austronesian languages for now, until this has been discussed.
I think I only used Linguist List as a source for dead languages (that aren't in Ethnologue); remember that there has been a new version of Ethnologue published since this list was made, so I think Ethnologue has changed while LL has stayed the same.

OK. Do you recommend that we use the latest version of Ethnologue as our primary source? If so, I will amend the Philippines languages to comply with the latest Ethnologue.
Not certain, but as far as I know, the ISO 639-6 (draft?) categorises things again, possibly differently. user:GerardM probably knows more about it.
Hoi,the information at Ethnologue is consistent with the information we use at translatewiki.net. The iso-639-6 is expected to bring all the information from language families down to dialects together in one big thing. As a project this deserves to be called ambitious. I do not know when the status will change and its data become a standard. Thanks,
