I have moved Proto-Norse from reconstructed languages, because it is attested in many runic inscriptions and should count as a historic language.--Berig (talk) 10:17, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Why are some language subgroups italicized?

The relationship between the two lines in Language subgroups is not clear. Some words that appear in the first line are reused in the second line without a link, and the entire second line is italicized.

Things like this should be explained in the template, either by subheaders on the left or a footnote on the last line of the template. I suppose if the explanation isn't too long it could be in parentheses after the word or the line to which it applies.

Sorry all I can do is point things out, but my real-life limitations get in the way of doing any more and I might not make it back here. Thanks in advance if you can work on this! — Geekdiva (talk) 01:05, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
