Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search



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.

Swedish nouns[edit]

Hello, when adding a gender, can you please add it like this (g=c, g=n or g=nc). This prevents the entry from being in Category:Swedish nouns lacking gender. Thank you. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:11, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes, of course. Thanks for the reminder. Halfdan (talk) 18:05, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Great job / User page[edit]

Hi Halfdan. Good job you've been doing so far on Swedish entries. Just a small request. Would you put a Babel box on your User page so we are aware of your language proficiencies? If you are not sure how to use this template, take a peek at its documentation here {{Babel}}. Thanks! JamesjiaoTC 04:25, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Will do. Thanks, Jamesjiao. Halfdan (talk) 04:31, 5 December 2012 (UTC)


Your entries seem to be of really good quality for a beginner. Please note this change, because we need standard headers here. Thanks —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:14, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the reminder, Metaknowledge. Halfdan (talk) 05:18, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Oh yeah, and just so you know, you're welcome to add interwiki links like sv:whatever, but a robot will add them eventually anyway, and robots don't get tired like humans do :) —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:28, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Oh, okay, thanks again. Halfdan (talk) 05:29, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and sorry to bother you even more, but does uppsats have a plural? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:37, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, uppsatser, I'll add the term's declension now. Halfdan (talk) 05:40, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Optime! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:44, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
