639-2:1998, Codes for the representation of names of languages -
Part 2: Alpha-3 code, is the second part of the ISO 639 standard,
which lists codes for the representation of the names of languages.
The three-letter codes given for each language in this part of the
standard are referred to as "Alpha-3" codes. There are 464 entries
in the list of ISO 639-2 codes. The U.S. Library of Congress is the
registration authority for ISO 639-2 (referred to as ISO 639-2/RA).
As registration authority, the LOC receives and reviews proposed
changes; they also have representation on the ISO 639-RA Joint
Advisory Committee responsible for maintaining the ISO 639 code
tables. Work was begun on the ISO 639-2 standard in 1989, due to
the fact that the ISO 639-1 standard, which gives two-letter codes
for languages, would not be able to accommodate a sufficient number
of languages. The ISO 639-2 standard was first released in 1998.
