This is my first time to use Wikitonary and I am disappointed. The definition I have been looking for, for the word, oneirism, also has a medical definition with a specific technical meaning. The definition given is correct but it is of a more casual nature. Plus, shouldn't we be given some pronunciation direction? I also think it is very helpful to have sentences for assistance in understanding a word's use in the context of language. Additionally, for me it is always a special delight to learn the etymology of a word, perhaps a manifestation of my own oneirism from which I have happily suffered all my life. Wiktionary's definition for this word is like finding a lone, cold pork chop on a napkin when coming to the party with the expectation of mashed potatoes and gravy along with cornbread and slaw! I want Wiktionary to take me all the way! I haven't read the guidelines for writing definitions if there are any, but if someone is going to make an entry why not take us all the way? Or at least a generally expected minimum of the way. I hope that I'm not sounding like just another whiner. Thank you!
