Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm hoping to create a map that is in Tlingit, the language of the people who first occupied my local area (see this site). Some features have a name:tli tag. Area in question How could I query the features that have that tag? I tried [name:tli is NOT NULL] and it didn't work.

@Jfact0ry You can use for example node[place][!"lang:tli"]({{bbox}}); to query for place=* features without a name your language, using the ! not operator. Be careful not to make the box too wide in area to avoid over-limit.
