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



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.

I've made just a few changes. I must stress these are good entries, but don't link to Ancient Greek words in the Latin script, use something like ''exo'' or {{term||exo}} instead of {{term|exo}}, which doesn't link to Ancient Greek, but rather to Spanish.

Yes it's nonstandard, but it's a word. See also Category:Nonstandard. Thanks. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:37, 12 October 2010 (UTC)


FYI, this is how quotations and usage notes should be formatted. —RuakhTALK 15:52, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Much thanks. I'll try to contribute often enough not to forget that I have the info right here! Usually I use the wizard for new words, but this time when I went to look up the word, I saw the appeal for a quote and could not resist! Of course I got myself into a slough, but I consoled myself with the thought that someone would help! And voila! Merci beaucoup! Go well, JonRichfield (talk) 16:48, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
