This field contains a 2-character ISO 639-1 abbreviation for the language which is used to identify this record. Except when adding a new language this is a read-only field.
The English name of the language.
Enter text to search for in the language names.
The native name of the language.
The definite article used in this language for most country names which are singular. In English country names are usually uncountable nouns and therefore do not take an article, but in most languages they do, and the article agrees grammatically with the gender and number of the name of the country. For example in English you refer to "France", but in French you refer to "la France". An exception in English is where the country has a noun phrase as its name, for example "the United Kingdom", and "the United States of America", contrasted with "Great Britain" which is the uncountable name of the largest island in the archipelago of the British Isles.

The possessive preposition and definite article expression used in this language for most country names which are singular. In English, because of the grammatical rule discussed for the "Article" field this expression is almost always just the preposition "of", but in most languages it is the possessive preposition plus a definite article, and the expression agrees grammatically with the gender and number of the name of the country.
