swank[edit]

Your example was added to the verb section, but should be under the noun. SemperBlotto 09:27, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that, I've just moved it. -- penubag  (talk) 09:32, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

fractiousness[edit]

fractiousness is a noun. fractious is an adjective. SemperBlotto 09:49, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

I'm out of it today, that was my stupid mistake (again) especially when I was looking right at a dictionary while I was writing those. Now that I look back, I realize that my mind some how switched the two words. Good thing you're monitoring my edits...I really should go to bed now. -- penubag  (talk) 09:54, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

You should have been given this . . . SemperBlotto 09:59, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Welcome!

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It 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.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • 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 start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for 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.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

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.

Again, welcome!

Thanks -- penubag  (talk) 10:01, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

bantering[edit]

Not having a good day?

  • "A conversation in which is humored and contains jokes"" doesn't make any sense
  • "To speak or joke in a teasing manner" - that is the verb to banter
  • "a bantering inconsequence" - that looks like an adjective to me (describes inconsequence) SemperBlotto 10:33, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I could reword the definition to A humored conversation spoken jokingly. And sorry, I'm just not used to a dictionary that has its different parts of speeches on separate pages. -- penubag  (talk) 10:45, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

swank[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for your contributions to swank. The verb definition no longer makes sense to me; I've listed it at Wiktionary:Requests for cleanup#swank to see if anyone can help improve it, but of course no one else will understand it better than the person who wrote it. So, please take a look if you have a chance. :-)

Thanks!
