Hi Ghislain,

I am not aware of such URIs, but on the lexvo dataset you can find language
codes (as URIs) related to the corresponding regions in which it is used by
means of lvont:usedIn (e.g. <lexvo:iso639-3/spa, ivont:usedIn,
lexvo:iso3166/MX>).  The fact that a language is used on a region does not
always imply a variant of the language, of course.

Hope it helps.

Best,
Idafen
