Language 91.3, September 2015 Ethnologue 16/17/18th editions: A comprehensive review: Online appendices Harald Hammarström Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen A Missing Languages This section lists languages which are missing from E16/E17/E18. To be more precise, a language is listed here as missing if: • Extant published literature can make a convincing case that the language exists (or existed, see below), and, • Extant published literature can make a convincing case that the language is not intelligible to any language already listed in E16/E17/E18, and, An important note is that we do not list languages which are missing solely in virtue of the interpretation of a dialect situation correctly understood (but interpreted dierently) in E16/E17/E18. This matter is separately treated in Section D1 . For example, if an E16/E17/E18 entry subsumes a number of varieties with borderline intelligibility, and the facts are correctly indicated (e.g., the names of the varieties as dialects and comments on intelligibility) we do not list such cases here, even if there are good reasons to interpret the same facts as yielding dierent entries. However, if an E16/E17/E18 entry shows signs of misunderstanding (missing the existence of a variety, has an erroneous indication of intelligibility level, or a blanket statement with no indicated basis etc.), we do list any variety that is arguably not intelligible as a missing language here. In all cases, we provide references to the literature that support the claims made regarding the missing language in question.
