It is the policy of the Observatoire that its on-going independent work on language coding should be complementary to and supportive of the ISO international standards. Letter codes identify various degrees of genetic relatedness and mutual intelligibility. It also offers a strong statement about the intrinsic value of linguistic diversity and the need for international cooperation in documenting it more systematically. The divisions of a language into sets, chains, and nets is based on analysis of linguistic similarities from statistics.

This primary Framework was only made possible by the fact that all human languages and language groups may be more widely organised, naturally and conveniently, within five major phyla or phylosectors of wider relationship or if not within five major continents or geosectors of wider location, within a system of initial digitsas fully presented and explained in Vol 1 of the Register, and fully documented in Vol.

Wikidata has the property: Thus, a geozone is more often divided into more sets than a phylozone, because the genetic relationships between languages of the latter usually ensures a greater amount of similarity between its members.
