Hi all,
I'm proposing changes to the name in the Ethnologue for some Naga groups in
Myanmar, to match their own name for themselves and the spelling used in
their orthographies, based on discussions with these groups. Here are my
proposed changes (all the current names would become alternate names): Any

Makyan Naga [umn] becomes Paungnyuan Naga
Kyan-Karyaw Naga [nqq] becomes Chen-Kayu Naga
Leinong Naga [lzn] becomes Lainong Naga
Kokak [nxk] becomes Kokak Naga (for consistency with the other Naga group

By the way, all Ethnologue updates need to be in by January each year. The
new edition comes out on February 21 each year, International Mother
Language Day.
