North Levantine not only a language of Syria!

ISO 639-3: 

To The Editors, I would like to point out that although North Levantine is registered on the Lebanon page, the North Levantine page says only that it is a "language of Syria". It should read, "a language of Syria and Lebanon", at least. I would also like to draw your attention to the large prevalence of North Levantine speakers in the Turkish province of Antakya and elsewhere. I cannot see this mentioned anywhere on the Turkey page. With the greatest respect for your efforts and achievements, Yours faithfully, Joel Thomas

Editorial Action
