Instead of bothering with poorly defined cultural identities, ku'ufu'ivla should first focus on 'standard' domains. That is, select candidates according to internationally defined and regulated entities. Suggestions below:
- 1) Languages, according to ISO codes;
following the precedent of approximating the native pronunciation (a conventional cmene) and then converting it into a suitable CCVVCV fi'uvla.
- 2) Political Territories, according to something like this list, or ISO 3166 country codes;
using the pronunciation of the country's name in the most populous official language.
- 3) any other useful standards?
The lists linked above do all the preparations, formatted with the native name and pronunciation. Let's transfer them into tikitables and then get this over with!
