Decision: Changing ‘modern’ languages to ‘kasahorow’ languages
Date of Decision: November 2022
Decision Maker: KASAHOROW
Target Group: KASAHOROW dictionary users
Reason for Decision:
You might have noticed that we refer to existing kasahorow languages as ‘modern’. For instance, Yoruba was previously called Modern Yoruba, referring to the way kasahorow represents the language.
However, while we recognise that our tactic for creating inclusion in a language is still to modernise the language, we believe that kasahorow is one of many contributors to the modern version of any language.
This acknowledgement of our role as a contributor to the development of inclusion in every language has prompted the change in our naming convention. So going forward, Modern Yoruba will become kasahorow Yoruba, a change which will filter through to our dictionaries for sale, referring more specifically to our contribution to modernising the language.
