Corrections to Dialect info

Regarding: 
Dialects
ISO 639-3: 
pwg

The information under 'Dialects' has been misunderstood and needs to be revised. Currently it states: "East Gapa, West Paiwa. Lexical similarity: 73% with Ghayavi [bmk] (Boanaki dialect most similar)." It should read: "The Gapa dialect is spoken in the eastern part of the language area and the Paiwa dialect is spoken in the western part. They are mutually intelligible. Lexical similarity: 73% with Ghayavi [bmk] (Boyanai dialect most similar)."

Editorial Action

We will make these changes in the database for the 19th edition.
