User:J Milburn

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Hi, I'm a seventeen year old student from England. I mostly contribute to en.wikipedia, where I am an administrator, under this username. See my userpage there if you want to know anything about me personally. I've decided I should branch out into other Wikimedia projects, and I thought Wiktionary was the one that was of most interest to me. I'm still new here, so please point me in the right direction if I'm going wrong, either on my talk page or on IRC, which I should be on if I'm active either here or on Wikipedia at the time.

I speak only English, but I have an interest in my local Cumbrian dialect, Old English, Old Norse and slang. I also have a great interest in obscure words, so those are the sort of areas I will be writing about.
