Retired in ISO 639-3: Merged into North Wemale [weo]
Excerpt from change request document:
Taguchi, who originally stated that they are differen langauges, recently sent me an e-mail stating the following "My survey report in 1996-7 concluded that the North and South Wemale should be identified as two different languages. However, after many years of interactions of Wemale community people I learned and can now conclude that they can communicate with each other without difficulty. So now we may want to say that Wemale have at least two main dialects: North and South Dialects."
I recently returned from a survey of North Wemale and they said that they have no problem communicating with the Wemale on the south coast of Seram.
