Welcome[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution 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.
  • 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.

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.

Redirections[edit]

See WT:REDIR, in this case, you should create the entries instead of using redirects. {{ja-noun}} is equipped for this; see also {{ja-def}} and WT:About Japanese. --Mglovesfun (talk) 17:27, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Appendix:Proto-Indo-European/bʰago[edit]

What source do you have for this reconstruction? The two descendants allow for both *bʰago- and *bʰogo-. Furthermore, the meaning "god" is probably a specific Slavic development, because Slavic also has *bogatъ (wealthy), showing that this was the original meaning. Also, please link reconstructed terms in descendants with {{lr}}, not with {{recons}} which is a counterpart to {{term}} and is meant to be used for mentions in running text. Finally, when creating PIE entries that are not full words, please add a hyphen at the end per WT:AINE#Linking and entry names. Of course it's even better to just use the full nominative singular form if it's known. —CodeCat 15:59, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
