I adapted and expanded on these:

> BCP 47 is the [language tag](https://www.w3.org/TR/i18n-glossary/#def_language_tag) system used by Internet and Web standards (and many other places). It defines a method of using subtags from an IANA registry to form a string to describe the language of content. The subtags in the registry are primarily based on (and maintain strict compatibility with) ISO and UN standards for identifying languages, scripts, regions, and countries. BCP47 also forms the basis for [Unicode locales](https://www.w3.org/TR/i18n-glossary/#def_unicode_locale).
