  This proposal has been closed as part of a reform of the request process.
This request has not necessarily been rejected, and new requests are welcome. This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy.

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 06:17, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Relevant infos: Kinaray-a is second most-spoken language in Panay Island in the Philippines. Long considered to be variant of Hiligaynon, Kinaray-a linguists are fighting to establish its own right to be called a langauge. It is distinct in many ways from Hiligaynon. It is the official language of the Province of Antique (Antike/Hantike), it is spoken by 70% of Iloilo Province's population and 75% of Capiz Province's population. There are also large numbers of Kinaray-a speakers on the islands of Mindoro, Palawan, Romblon, Masbate and Metro Manila.

    • Strong OPPOSE -- it is wrong to propose to squat the language code of another language
      • Is it possible to find another native speaker, before this is listed as an approved requst? Thanks! --Node ue 21:09, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
      • Nobody's squatting anything. krj is the Kinaray-a code. See SIL. Tuf-Kat
