2.1 Language Code Identifiers

LCIDs are identifiers used to specify localizable information. They are also known as culture identifiers in the Microsoft .NET Framework environment.

The name of a culture consists of its [ISO-639] language code, its [ISO-3166] country/region code, and an optional [ISO-15924] script tag for the written language, as described in [RFC4646]. For example, the name of the culture in which the language is Bosnian (as written in Latin script and used in the Bosnia and Herzegovina region) is bs-Latn-BA.<1><2><3>

Many APIs permit use of the culture name, which is preferred over the LCID form.
