    typesetting and then that got turned into page proofs which after proofreading and copyediting got sent off to a printer The process took months and we were grateful at the time that we only had to do it once every four years It was only after the books were well on their way that we then did another data conversion to update the website As I ve described previously we ve come a long way since then with some astounding technological changes but more importantly with an evolving and growing research agenda that has adapted to the emergence of widespread concern for language endangerment and a growing interest in the role of language in education the effect of policy on language use and vitality the increasing presence of digital language use and internet communications technologies At the same time the role of information big data in analyzing and understanding the state of the world turned the Ethnologue s collection of information into potentially actionable data that could be mined for insights and perspectives From a quadrennial printed reference book the Ethnologue gradually grew into one of the go to online resources for those who wanted to know about languages globally as well as individually It has been a fun ride that has been both intellectually stimulating and mentally and professionally challenging With the 19th edition we continue that trajectory of growth and expansion Much of what we are adding in this edition isn t immediately visible but the behind the scenes development work we have been doing will enable the Ethnologue to better serve its multiple audiences I ve talked about our growing corps of Field Contributors who are using OSCAR our online interface to update and improve the information about the languages that they know best That has already resulted in many more updates and corrections than we would have been able to process in the past More visibly you ll notice a few new data items that are reported on not for every language yet but for a substantial and growing number of them For example we are newly reporting the names of language planning and development agencies which are working with language communities In most cases those agencies are local community based organizations that are promoting the maintenance and revitalization of their own languages And by restructuring our database we have greatly enhanced our ability to track and report second language use Our data is still incomplete in that regard but as it grows you can expect to see each subsequent edition providing more and more useful information on multilingualism and language contact One of the stellar contributions of Ethnologue over the years has been the language maps that enrich our understanding of where language communities are located The maps have developed dramatically as the technology available to produce them and the expertise of our cartographic team has grown and the team itself has expanded In the 19th edition expect to see several revisions of existing maps

    that the data we have is correct concise and comprehensive We now have a cadre of 30 Field Contributors and will be expanding that number throughout 2016 Another way in which we have been able to improve the quality of the data is through cooperative research with scholars and community members in organized intensive data review projects Initially I called these events data audits Our intent was to cooperate with local experts in looking at the Ethnologue data for a specific country Together we audited that information to ensure that it was as complete and up to date as possible Over the last decade we have carried out these intensive data reviews in Kenya the Philippines Brazil Central and South America Nepal and most recently in Sabah Malaysia The data from the Sabah review carried out jointly with the Universiti Malaysia Sabah UMS is currently being entered into the database and will appear in the forthcoming 19th edition As you might expect these events take a lot of planning and coordination to make them happen and we are grateful to our partners in each case for their hard work in recruiting data reviewers distributing and collecting the data for review organizing the group meetings and in most cases providing a major part of the resources needed personnel venue and much of the funding Here at Ethnologue Central much of our preparatory work right now involves fairly mundane checking of the data to be sure the restructuring process has worked correctly We are also restoring a lot of the computerized magic that got broken when the structure of the database changed In addition we are awaiting the final results of the 2015 round of ISO 639 3 Change Requests and need to update our database based on those changes between now

    that inclusion The legacy repertoire of identified languages became codified first within the pages of the Ethnologue and more recently with some modifications in the ISO 639 3 standard It serves as the baseline for our statistical analyses and in many ways has been taken by many people to be a given the true and authoritative list of the living and recently extinct languages of the world While that s what we aim for we recognize that given the nature of the early aims and research methodology neither we nor you should just take us at our word The inclusion of a language now in the ISO 639 3 inventory should be based on evidence The second complication is that the simple lack of evidence data about the nature of the language the number of present or former users the location of those users and all the other kinds of information that make an Ethnologue entry complete doesn t necessarily mean that a language isn t there now or wasn t there in the last 60 years our definition of recently extinct Many small language groups live in very remote areas Often they are intermixed with users of other languages and are multilingual in those languages The use of the language may not be visible to the casual or short term observer And even with more extensive observation the domains and times of use may be so limited or so intimate only in the home exclusively among members of the group when no outsiders are present as to go unremarked And then even when somebody may be aware of such a language they may do no more than mention it in passing in a publication or a conference presentation If the language is now extinct there is some utility in making sure that it gets added to the ISO 639 3 inventory as an extinct language This gives the scholarly community a three letter code that can be used to clearly identify the now dead language That may seem like a small thing but it enables those who study languages in a region or in a particular language family to more easily know that they are talking about the same or different linguistic entities And if the language went extinct after 1950 we want to make sure that it is clearly and concisely reported on in the Ethnologue The third complication is that when multiple sources report on the linguistic ecology of a region different sources may use different names for the same languages Sometimes one source identifies different varieties using different names where the ISO 639 3 standard lumps all of those varieties together under a single name Often these different names come from the users of the language itself If those were reported to Ethnologue prior to 2005 when Ethnologue began to use the ISO 639 3 standard chances are they might have been added to the Ethnologue as separate languages Wanting to be comprehensive we included possibly
