Description Tristan Miller 2006-04-04 18:43:59 UTC
The language name for Cree is incorrect and incomplete. It is currently
"Nehiyaw", which is incorrect, because the e vowel is long; it should read
"Nēhiyaw". (Some linguists would go so far as to write "Nēhiýaw", presumably to
mark the y/th distinction among dialects.) Furthermore, Cree can be written in
either the Latin alphabet or Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics, so both scripts
should be represented. The full text of the language should thus be "Nēhiyaw /
ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐤ" or possibly "Nēhiýaw / ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐤ". This makes it match other languages with
two scripts, such as Kurdish ("Kurdî / كوردي").

I will be attaching a patch.

Fixed on trunk, r13484.
Comment 3 Tristan Miller 2007-02-28 23:50:26 UTC
Come to think of it, the word Nēhiýaw / ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐤ actually refers to a Cree person,
not the name of the language.  The proper term is Nēhiyawēwin / ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍᐏᐣ – see
http://cr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk%3A%E1%93%83%E1%94%A5%E1%91%95%E1%92%BB%E1%90%B9%E1%94%85%E1%91%8C%E1%92%8B%E1%93%82%E1%91%B2%E1%93%90&diff=4620&oldid=4295
for details.  I will attach another patch.
