I have taken on tasks of maintaining these topics (with help from other Wiktionarians of course). Some other topics lack regular maintainers, so I check on them periodically and make additions when I can. I welcome help on any of these or other topics (more categories).

Word of the Day

Christmas Competition 2006 Now Open

The Wiktionary:Christmas Competition 2006 is now open to all contributors. It's based on the old word game in which one word has to be converted into another by changing one letter at a time, each stage being a real word. At every stage the word must be in a different language to the one immediately before. The usual prize (a feeling of smug self-satisfaction) will be awarded to the "best" entry. This will be judged on several criteria including length and number of words, imaginative choice of languages etc. ALL words used MUST have a good entry in Wiktionary.
