The standard does not cover all language families used by linguists. The languages covered by a group code need not be linguistically related, but may have a geographic relation, or category relation such as Creoles. Languages, families, or group codes in ISO can be of type “group” g or “remainder group” r. A “group” consists of several related languages; a “remainder group” is a group of several related languages from which some specific languages have been excluded.
However, in ISOthe “remainder groups” do not exclude any languages. Because ISO and ISO use the same Alpha-3 codes, but do not always refer to the same list of languages for any given code, the languages an Alpha-3 code refers to can’t be determined unless it is known whether the code is used in the context of ISO or ISO The committee draft of ISO was issued on February 23, Voting on the draft terminated on July 5, ; the draft was approved.
