Hi there. Your entries are quite interesting, but need formating, as above. Particularly, please consider capitalization. Should Rites of Passage be singular right of passage? SemperBlotto 07:27, 18 July 2005 (UTC)
- It should be lower-case, singular rite of passage. You can use the move tab to put it there. And welcome. --Dvortygirl 07:29, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome. The Wiktionary Project is a great idea I will try to participate as time permits.
Sorry about the formatting I am new and just learning my way around. I like this talk feature and have learned my first Wiktionary lesson. The problem with trying to make quick, clear and short definitions, is that language is not generally clear or sort, that is why we have Wiktionary.
I skimmed the move process last night and remember thinking, " Wonder how I will use that". Well I guess I have found out how I will use that. LOL
Here are the changes I propose to clear things up a bit. What do you think?
1. A rite of passage is the process of learning one's Culture. Many ethnic groups initiate this transition to adulthood at around the time of puberty. This process produces ethnic group citizens that have Cultural Health.
2. a rite of passage can be a single event or a combination of events and the reception of information lasting many days, weeks or months.
African Americans have lost a major continental ritual commonly known as their Rites of Passage.
Robert took his brother John to have his first beer, this is a common American rite of passage.
