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.

WT:ACCEL[edit]

It helps for creating plural entries. I will say though, when you use it IMO in the case of multiword plurals like entries you have made, it is often best to replace the ridiculously wikilinked headword with a simple use of {{head|en}}. User: PalkiaX50 talk to meh 17:39, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Holy crap, that's useful. Thanks, I never would have found that myself! Lunaibis (talk) 17:52, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

obeluso[edit]

In future, could you please specify the language of the term that you link to with the {{term}} template? So for English, use {{term|word|lang=en}}. —CodeCat 01:41, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Absolutely! My bad. Lunaibis (talk) 13:18, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Sinocentric[edit]

Is this really pronounced with /iː/? —CodeCat 17:35, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

No it is not, it varies between /ɪ/ and /aɪ̯/. Thank you for pointing that out. Lunaibis (talk) 17:42, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
