  • If cdo is the ISO code, you will have to go with it for the subdomain, too. This appears a bit unfortunate, since laz would certainly be nice. If possible, try to have the ISO code changed, which I doubt would be easy or quickly accomplished. Good luck! -- Purodha Blissenbach 00:16, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Etnologuetotally wrong about statistics of Laz speakers. There's not any statistic about Laz even other minorities in Turkey.It's just a conjecture or projection of 1965 census.
  • The en:Laz_language only gives lzz as the code, so that's what I've changed it to. Tuf-Kat 02:29, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
