For records reflecting AACR2 cataloging, the names of individual languages which appear in boldface are the forms usually used in uniform titles and notes in bibliographic records.  For example:

Homer. Iliad. English.  (form in uniform title)

Text in Coptic and French; notes in French.  (form in note)

Consult Library of Congress Rule Interpretations 1.7B2 and 25.5C for specific instructions and exceptions.

The individual languages which appear in boldface also usually correspond to the subject headings for those languages in Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).  The relationship of language names in this list to LCSH is described more fully in the section Names of Languages and Dialects.
