COMPARING CURRENT AND PREVIOUS EDITIONS OF ASCL
The ABS urges users and providers of language data to collect, classify and disseminate data using ASCL 2016 as soon as practicable/possible. There will be circumstances where users need to convert data from earlier versions of ASCL to ASCL 2016. To facilitate this process, a correspondence table between the 2016 and 2011 editions of ASCL is provided. In almost all cases, the languages of the two editions of the classification retain a one-to-one relationship. The correspondence table itemises the code linkages between the languages and indicates the movement of particular languages between groups in the two structures. The correspondence table is provided in the ASCL Data Cube, accessible from the 'Downloads' tab.
In some instances, there is not a direct relationship between the language categories in the two editions of ASCL. Partial linkages at the language level are indicated by including the word 'part' after the code of the language concerned.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
