Is it necessary to add the dàole?[edit]

It won't appear in a Chinese dictionary. I found dàoliǎo in Chinese dialect dictionary(ISBN: 7101008178). --Hahahaha哈 (talk) 02:13, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

It's important for disambiguation, even if it may not merit an entry if "dàoliǎo" didn't exist. "dào le"!= "dàoliǎo". It's also done so on English and other entries. Which dialect is it (question above)? --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 02:17, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
First, just like 发出火花 you disguesed in Wiktionary:Requested_entries_(Chinese), simple verb + auxiliary word will never appear in Chinese dictionary, see 做了看了过了问了做过. So it will not be ambiguous in dictionary. Also, they have completely different pronunciation, so it will not be ambiguous in spoken Chinese. It is really unnecessary. And it is so strange to see dàole in dictionary. Maybe you should consider write it in Usage notes section. According to Chinese dialect dictionary(ISBN: 7101008178), it is spoken in Southwestern Mandarin西南官话 and Central Plains Mandarin中原官话. I also found it spoken in a city near Beijing, but I can't find a reference.--Hahahaha哈 (talk) 04:26, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
了 may be idiomatic in a number of expressions, e.g. 有了, 好了, 得了 and Pleco, Adsotrans, CEDIC dictionaries does contain a few others. I have changed the definition, if you insist so. Please check.
It (dàoliǎo) seems to be used in Northern Chinese, even if not so common in the south. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 04:42, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
I think labelling it {{cx|dialectal|_|Mandarin|lang=cmn}} is enough. Wyang (talk) 04:45, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
{{cx|regional|_|Mandarin|lang=cmn}} is better, it will add to the proper category. Yes, when it's harder to describe, which dialects, then just "regional" should be enough. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 04:50, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
BTW, we should use "sort", otherwise entries will not be sorted correctly, I've changed to {{cx|regional|sort=dao4liao3|lang=cmn}}. "Mandarin" is unnecessary, "regional" will be attached to the language name. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 04:54, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
Which region? 173.89.236.187 01:44, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Region? why? I think it is part of the Chinese dialectology.--Hahahaha哈 (talk) 03:17, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
