Adding Esperanto words[edit]

  • Please categorize the articles as you add them, by adding [[Category:Esperanto language]] to the bottom of the article. This will automatically index the words at Category:Esperanto language. I've categorized a few of your articles already, to start you off. Please go back over your earlier additions and categorize them as well. Uncle G 15:49, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Thanks, I'll get started with that. By the way, my word list is from the public-domain Universala Vortaro. Cam 16:01, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
      • I've made a {{Universala Vortaro}} template. Put it at the bottom of all such articles. It will note the copyright status. Uncle G 16:32, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
        • Thanks, although the word choice is from the UV the definitions aren't necessarily from there. Some I am writing myself (if these stubs can be called writing :-D) since the UV translations are out of date. So it's not a Webster 1913 situation exactly. I was concerned that word lists themselves might be copyrightable and that someone might be concerned that I was pulling a word list out of something copyrighted, so I noted the public domain status of my source list.

          • Think of it not as an exact analogue of {{1913}}, but rather as more like Wikipedia's {{NASA}} and {{1911}} tags. Uncle G 11:31, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
      • Categories are not updated immediately, by the way. There is a slight lag. Don't be alarmed by it. Uncle G 16:32, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep up the good work. Is the word list from Universala Vortaro available electronically anywhere? Or are you working from the printed book? Uncle G 09:11, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)
