This is my talk page.

Many of my old timey insults are taken from the NY times article "Almost Before We Spoke, We swore" Sept. 20th, 2005. [[1]]

I realize that no one can access this article, unless you are a subscriber. The graphic from the online article can be seen in figure one to the right and below.

nihilate[edit]

If it is a verb then it can't be "that by which. . " - maybe nihilation. What's that third thing - it doesn't seem to be a definition? SemperBlotto 17:30, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

eudemonia[edit]

Philosophy is not a language!! (I'll get back to you about the appendix) SemperBlotto 19:59, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

sodium laurylsulfate[edit]

It is sodium lauryl sulfate SemperBlotto 22:57, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

The second definition was defining detergent not sodium lauryl sulfate. Not all deterents are ionic - so that bit stays. External links are at level 3 not 2. SemperBlotto 23:07, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Word of the Day[edit]

In case u hadn't notice, we already have a Wiktionary:Word of the Day (notice the capitalisation). Just to save you the work, I thought I'd tell thee --Dangherous 01:33, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

You asked for help with WOTD. On my user page is a list of interesting words I've made notes of while reading - I'm currently putting them all into Wiktionary. I'm only up to E so far, but any of them would make good choices. Good project btw. Widsith 18:28, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

WOTD[edit]

Hello there. As you may have noticed already, your box is on the Main page! Also note that I made it 100% wide, so it might not look all that good on other pages. — Vildricianus 20:33, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

Oh well, others made the decision to put it there; I merely did some layout. Cheers. — Vildricianus 20:49, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
Well, WOTD was succesfull, I've redesigned the main pages of this wiki, and so pretty much I'm done here. I'll leave the language work to the linguists. Maybe I could give you my account password, so you can do some admin chores. Either way, I'm not gonna be around here much longer. I will bring some beauty to Wikiquote I think. Cheers for your work. --Dangherous 14:12, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

melatonin[edit]

There's nothing that irritates professional chemists more than the use of the word chemical as a noun ! SemperBlotto 07:29, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

sequella[edit]

I saw you changed the plural, is sequellas still OK? If not I will have it deleted.. sewnmouthsecret 19:56, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Citations:omphalocentric[edit]

Hi, Citations on Wiktionary are different from on Wikipedia. The Citations pages should be formatted as Citations:hinder, and definitely not full of links. Yours Conrad.Irwin 14:58, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
