This category is generated by {{infobox language}} or {{infobox language family}} invoking Module:Check for unknown parameters. The module will pass on any parameters not included in the exceptions list, which appears at the bottom of the template coding. Articles are alphabetized here by the name of the bogus parameter.

Problems are occasionally generated when a language box is imperfectly converted to a family box or vice versa, from remnants of old fields which may be occasionally resurrected from someone's archives, or when editors think they can add support for a new field just by putting it in an info box. Sometimes the latter are worth adding to the template, so this can be good feedback for where a template needs to grow.

By temporarily removing a parameter name from the exceptions list, and watching for what pops up here, you can see whether the parameter is actually being used. For example, the language-box template had support for 45 ISO3 codes, but the most used in any article was 23, so the template coding was cut back to support 30.
