About me I am Australian and speak only English but I LOVE books, reading and words... I've been a Wikipedian for over a year (boy, time flies...) but I just found the wiktionary a short time ago.

Welcome back and we almost have our 50000 entries! Well almost... I think we are doing very well to have a real good dictionary withing a few years. 10:44 Jun 22, 2003 (UTC)

I found the wiktionary by clicking on the shiny new link in the wikipedia... it seems like a good idea but I have to say that the more times I click that random button, the more words I find that I've never heard of in my life, and the more stupid and illiterate I feel! Maybe somebody can explain in words of 2 syllables or less what it is we're actually trying to do here, and then I'll know how I can help (other than by proof-reading and correcting other people's typos). Right now I'm afraid to try to contribute anything because I don't understand what standard is expected :)

Okay... now I know what's going on around here and it's DEFINITELY a good idea. I'm trying to do what I can as a monolingual Australian-english-speaker. Ironically, I'm also mildly dyslexic, but I love words and I rarely make spelling mistakes nowadays. I don't have a great deal of knowledge about grammar, parts of speech etc, but my pocket dictionary is my friend and it's providing the info I don't have!
