Comment (by abdessamad idrissi):

 I agree with what you said; Wikipedia considers Berber as a group of
 languages, but for me as a native Berber, I don't think so; It is as if
 you say English is a group of languages (British, US, South African
 English...) It is just a matter of pronunciation variations but most of
 the words are the same.

 Since the year 2001 the
 IRCAM] is working on standardization of the Berber language.

 According to the
 [http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/English_list.php ISO 639-2];
 Berber languages are given the ''ber'' code, the same for Bihari languages
 which are given the code ''bih''; Bihari languages are found in Glotpress
 so why Berber languages will be an exception?
