Welcome![edit]

Welcome!

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.
  • Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide to Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

Also, please add a BabelBox to your userpage so we can help you with the languages you'll be working in.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Again, welcome!

oigo[edit]

Spanish does not have those phonemes. Maybe you meant to write

{{IPA|/'ojgo/|['o̞i̯.ɣo]|lang=es}}

? —RuakhTALK 01:36, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! —RuakhTALK 02:26, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

insistir[edit]

FYI, you don't need to add interwikis in the main namespace. Once en.wikt and es.wikt both have entries with the same title, the interwikis will be added by bots within a month or so. (You've been adding them correctly, so I have no complaints — if you wish to continue adding them manually, you're welcome to do so — I just wanted to make sure you were aware.) —RuakhTALK 20:21, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Spanish adjective-forms in translations tables.[edit]

When translating an English adjective to Spanish, you only need to give the masculine singular form, and you don't need to mark it with m. (Nouns have their own genders — mujer is a feminine noun — but adjectives just take the gender of the noun they modify — ric@s inflects for masculine or feminine, singular or plural.) —RuakhTALK 15:51, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
