Hola Idafen,

Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll look deeply in the lexvo dataset. 

I really hope to find direct URIs out there based on the IETF doc [1] as defined in $2..2.4 section on region subtag. 

Cheers,
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.
