The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 01:03:17, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Proposal summary
Please read the handbook for requesters for help using this template correctly.
  • ISO / SOL code: Extremaduran - (SIL Code, EXT; ISO 639-2 code, roa [Romance Miscellaneous])
  • Proposer: Carlos Quiles (co-writer of the cultural newspaper
  • People interested joining:
    • APLEx Society
  • Notes/comments:
    • Two dialect near en:Castilian and en:Portuguese language (es:Dialecto extremeño).
    • No ISO code. Are there any objections to roa-ext? (roa is the generic code for "other Romance languages")
      • ext is not an ISO code. (5 Mar 2005)
        • No, but it is an SIL code which brings more detail to the 'roa' miscellaneous Romance description. roa-ext or ext-roa sounds good to me. 23:35, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
    • this language seems a mixture of Portuguese and Spanish. It seens that is not a language variation (dialect of a language), like British English or American English, but a language. Fala is more related with Portuguese and it belongs to the Portuguese-Galician group (31 Mar 2005).
      • No, Fala and Extremaduran are what are called "transitional varieties". They do not belong to either language. This is an example of a Wikipedia requested a while ago with support from the relevant cultural institutions but was never created, while chr:, chy:, tum:, and others created around the time of this request never had that support, but were created anyways and are still practically empty. --Node ue 16:49, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
