A bit more on languages:

--- begin quote ---
An “accent” might be {QIch wab Ho’DoS Sar} “pronunciation variety.”  A
“regional accent” would then be {Sep QIch wab Ho’DoS} or {Sep QIch wab Sar}
or {Sep QIch wab Ho’DoS Sar}.

(“Dialect,” by the way, would be {Hol Sar}; “regional dialect” is {Sep Hol
Sar}.)
