The langnames package provides a consistent way to name languages in Linguistics documents. It comes with about 7500 pre-defined combinations of ISO 639-3 codes, names, and language families, pulled from the Glottolog and WALS databases.

To install the package, run:

latex langnames.ins

More instructions in the package documentation, langnames.pdf.

It is important that the ln .tex files be installed in the same directory as langnames.sty, so as to avoid the risk of them not being recognized as runtime files.

langnames – Name languages and their genetic affiliations consistently

This package attempts to make the typing of language names, codes, and families slightly easier by providing macros to access pre-defined language—code—family combinations from two important databases, as well as the possibility to create new combinations. It may be particularly useful for large, collaborative projects as well as typologically minded ones with a variety of language examples.
