mail[edit]

Is there anything new in your e‐mailbox? --Æ&Œ (talk) 16:26, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

No, nothing yet. —Stephen (Talk) 16:31, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
Sigh…O.K., well, can I say « Bonjour ! dit l’étranger », or does it have to be « Bonjour ! lui dit l’étranger »? --Æ&Œ (talk) 16:34, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I think either one is okay. Put mdash first: — Bonjour ! dit l’étranger. —Stephen (Talk) 16:40, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
I agree with your statement on the 'word of the day' and I think the same idea applies to dictionaries
PS (same guy) you might want to change the definition of the word pathetic... it appears to have changed into and adjective describing an individual lacking something the "name caller" values little yet expects all to have. For example.. I am pathetic because I dont have a car. Its a word no longer related to pity but to disgust and hate.

User:Ruakh/Tbot.js скрипт для ускоренного создания статей из переводов[edit]

Привет,

Ползователь Ruakh создал программку для быстрого создания статей из переводов на русский язык. Работает очень хорошо, я протестировал. Нужно только добавить код (зависит от оболочки, которую ты используешь) в Викисловаре и перезагрузить браузер. Склонение, спряжение, синонимы и прочее нужно добавлять в ручную.

Одним щелчком в переводе на русский слова abstinence:

=={{subst:ru}}==

===Noun===
{{ru-noun|tr=vozderžánije|g=n}}

# [[abstinence]] {{gloss|the act or practice of abstaining}}

Остается добавить другие значения (если есть), склонение, и т.д.

=={{subst:ru}}==

автоматически меняется на Russian после сохранения.

Сообщи, если интересно, помогу установить или свяжись напрямую с Руахом. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 00:58, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Да-а. Трудно себе представить, как программка работает. Я думаю, что важно сначала получить список утверждённых слов. Таким образом, мне не придётся беспокоиться, что записи будут удалены. —Stephen (Talk) 01:44, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Такова реальность работы в википроектах - есть возможность создать, но есть вероятность легко потерять, зато радует, что бо́льшая часть работы останется и будет доступна всем. В любом случае, цельные слова (без пробелов) на 99% процентов в безопасности, если нужна моя поддержка в защите созданных статей, можешь на меня расчитывать. А вообще нужно добавить код:

importScript('User:Ruakh/Tbot.js'); /* importScript('User:Ruakh/Test.js'); */

addOnloadHook(function() { greenifyTranslinks('ru'); });

У меня это находится в User:Atitarev/vector.js. Нужно сделать жёсткую перезагрузку браузера (Ctrl+F5). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 03:40, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Я попробовал её, но, кажется, ничего не делает. Программка только добавила слово Russian. Я мог бы набрать слово Russian без использования программки. —Stephen (Talk) 11:16, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Давай попробуем разобраться. Сперва открой: [1]
Посмотри значение "skin": "vector" (у меня), если написано "vector", то нужно вставить код в Stephen G. Brown/vector.js, если "monobook", то в Stephen G. Brown/monobook.js. Не знаю, какой оболочкой (skin) ты пользуешься. После сохранения нужно делать жёсткую перезагрузку (hard refresh). Если скрипт работаeт, то ссылки на русский перевод становятся зелёными, а остальные красными. Например в radio cassette player "магнитола" зелёного цвета, "ラジカセ" - синего, все остальные - красного. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 11:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Я пользуюсь monobook, код уже вставил туда. В radio cassette player "магнитола" зелёного цвета, "ラジカセ" синего, все остальные — красного. —Stephen (Talk) 12:40, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Всё ещё не работает? Извини, вчера у нас допоздна были гости, не смог ответить. Наверное надо спросить у Руаха. Похоже, что ты всё правильно сделал. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 22:11, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Стив, посмотри ответ на твой вопрос: User_talk:Ruakh/Tbot.js#.22Not_working.22_for_Vahag_and_Stephen. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 04:03, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
А теперь, кажется, работает правильно. Щелчком на зелёное слово и открыло страницу правильно. Я не нашёл консоли или инструментов разработчика. —Stephen (Talk) 22:41, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Ура! Руах сделал что-то в User:Stephen G. Brown/monobook.js и в своём скрипте. На странице User:Matthias_Buchmeier (English-Russian) есть полный список переводов. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 22:54, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

ojibwa askibwaan[edit]

Hi Stephen

I'm from the french WT where I most of the time work on Amerindian Languages. I've found a ojibwa word askibwaan (Jerusalem artichoke) that may come from you.

i could not find the word in the dictionaries of Nyholm (language code ciw) nor in Rhodes (codes otw and ojg) or in North-Western Ojibwa. The only trace of it I have is [2] Jones' texts as askibwān. So my question is : do you still have the source of it? And do you know in which dialect is this askibwaan. Dhegiha (talk) 11:41, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Dhegiha. I don’t think that came from me. I have seen the Ojibwe word for Jerusalem artichoke spelled askiibwaan (with long i). As to the dialect, it would probably be Minnesota Ojibwe, because in Minnesota they have the w:Artichoke River (Ojibwe = askibwaanikaa-ziibi, with short i) and Artichoke Lake (Ojibwe = askibwaanikaa-zaaga'igan, also a short i).
In the Salteaux dialect, it would be ogishkiibwaak. —Stephen (Talk) 18:27, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. I will thus requalify it as Minnesota Ojibwe word - we separate the different dialects on fr:WT. But do you think I might let it with short i or rewrite it as askiibwaan?
I f I may..I would like to ask you something about Saulteaux. I have a teacher's manuel in this dialect (Nahkawētā. Saulteaux Grade One. Teacher’s Manual, Indian Languages Program, Saskatchewan Indian Cultural College, Saskatoon, 1981) which write only unvoiced consonants and preaspirated : nipi, makwa, kinēpik, mēnikan, mōhkomān. Is this just an orthography matter or a dialectal variation within Saulteaux as you give ogishkiibwaak which would be writtten in my source *okiškīpwāk? Dhegiha (talk) 12:55, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Even though the correct names of the river and lake are askibwaanikaa-ziibi and askibwaanikaa-zaaga'igan, I think the correct spelling for Jerusalem artichoke is askiibwaan.
As for Salteaux and consonant voicing, I think Ojibwe originally did not have voiced consonants, but there was a contrast in fortis/lenis. The fortis/lenis contrast was often represented in the Roman alphabet using voiceless/voiced consonants, respectively. In modern times, in some dialects the lenis consonants are actually becoming voiced consonants because the speakers also speak English or French and they carry European voicing over into Ojibwe because of the spelling. But yes, the difference between ogishkiibwaak and *okiškīpwāk is only orthographic. —Stephen (Talk) 20:17, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Well, Stephen thanks for your knowledge about these questions. Indeed, there is a discrepancy between the linguistic publications which have only a opposition of the type k/kk, and those in the Fiero writing system and Nyholm and Rhodes which describe g as IPA g. Except of course for saulteaux which have preaspirated instead of fortis, i.e. ēmihkwān for emikwaan, as does osage opposed to omaha-ponca. Your explainations make the phonetic system of ojibwe more logical. Thanks a lot! Dhegiha (talk) 21:20, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

новые статьи[edit]

Привет, Стив.

Был бы очень рад, если бы ты смог помочь в массовом создании русских статей из переводов или в их форматировании. Я пока сосредоточился на создании самих статей, потом вернусь, чтобы добавлять склонение и спряжение. Создаю пока существительные, начал с буквы "A": User:Matthias_Buchmeier/en-ru-a. На сегодня пока: [3]. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 02:49, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Я постараюсь помочь в создании. Я не решаюсь тратить много времени на технические вопросы, такие как этимологии, сопряжения, и склонения, поскольку это может быть пустой тратой времени если страница будет удалена. —Stephen (Talk) 00:49, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Спасибо, Стив. Любая помощь полезна. Самое сложное - это глаголы. По сравнению с существительными, шаблоны для глаголов очень простые и спряжение нужно проставлять вручную. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 06:59, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

solids[edit]

Привет, Стив.

Ты не мог бы, пожалуйста, концентрироваться только на целых словах, многие из переводов (включая мои) - очевидные суммы частей и их нужно бы переводить в другой вид, например: из "от начала (ot načála)" в "от (ot) начала (načala) (ot načála)". --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 04:03, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Если нетрудно, пожалуйста добавляй новые статьи в Category:Russian terms needing attention через Help:Gadget-HotCat (самый быстрый способ) или {{attention|ru}}, особенно если нужна флексия. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:41, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Я не знаю, что такое «Help:Gadget-HotCat». Я могу добавить {{attention|ru}}. —Stephen (Talk) 05:47, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Окей, это то же самое. «Help:Gadget-HotCat» - это штучка, чтоб быстро добавлять категории, без редактирования и очень быстро. "Preferences->Editing gadgets->HotCat, easily add / remove / change a category on a page, with name suggestion". --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:55, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Форматирование двувидовых глаголов[edit]

Привет, Стив. Как лучше форматировать двувидовые глаголы типа адаптироваться, адаптировать, казнить? Они и совершенного и несовершенного вида. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 00:03, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Есть немало двувидовых глаголов. Я предполагаю, что они могут быть отформатированы как декларировать. Можно включать две таблицы спряжения, но я не думаю, что это необходимо. Можно видеть формы адекватно в таблице несовершенных глаголов. —Stephen (Talk) 01:04, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Спасибо, наверное нужно как-то обозначить, что у них два вида. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 01:23, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Так точно. В «декларировать», оба типа помечены как impf. and pf.. —Stephen (Talk) 01:32, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Я еще добавил Category:Russian perfective verbs. Так и буду делать с подобными глаголами.--Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 01:36, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

nobody's_perfect#Translations[edit]

Are these translations correct? --Æ&Œ (talk) 07:19, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

They were okay translations. It is better in French to say nul n'est parfait. —Stephen (Talk) 07:26, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

el uno[edit]

Did you already check your e‐mail box?

Anyway, assuming that the letter di’n’t arrive : is it acceptable to say ‘el uno; la una; los unos; las unas’ in Spanish? --Æ&Œ (talk) 10:52, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

No, I haven’t see the email yet. But yes, you can say ‘el uno; la una; los unos; las unas’. —Stephen (Talk) 00:31, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
That is the second time the bloody letter di’n’t arrive. Anyway! Do you have any notes on these definite indefinites? Are they formal? Are they (still) common? --Æ&Œ (talk) 03:54, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
They are just ordinary language, like English "the one", "the ones". —Stephen (Talk) 03:56, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

перенаправление[edit]

Exactly what is the meaning of ru:перенаправление? Just curious because I can't find the word in the 1800 page Russian-Korean dictionary that I have. Thank you in advance. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 22:32, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

It is a noun that means redirect, redirecting, redirection, rerouting. —Stephen (Talk) 07:27, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 17:09, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Русские глаголы[edit]

Привет, Стив,

Спасибо за новые русские статьи.

У меня к тебе вопрос. Мне нужна твоя помощь в импорте шаблонов для русских глаголов по Зализняку!

(Не могу добавить правильно ссылки на категории в русском Викисловаре!)

Русские шаблоны работают совсем не так как они работают здесь.

У тебя есть интерес в этом проекте? --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 06:04, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Я помогу, если смогу. Шаблоны трудны для меня, и русские глаголы настолько нерегулярны. Я не уверен, что можно было бы написать шаблоны для глаголов. —Stephen (Talk) 18:30, 1 March 2013 (UTC)
Я думаю это возможно, но потребуется много шаблонов. Если сделать больше параметров и опций, то шаблонов понадобится меньше. Я думаю, нужно использовать разные основы, например "бег" и "беж" (и сделать два параметра) для глагола "бежать". Для причастий страдательного залога нужно сделать отдельные параметры. В русском Викисловаре сотни шаблонов. Надеюсь, что столько не понадобится, но нужно посмотреть как они сделаны. Ищу полную классификацию по Андрею Зализняку́, но пока не могу найти. Посмотри пока Template:ru-verb-1-impf-ru 1a, делать и добавлять. Что ты думаешь? У тебя есть материалы по русским глаголам? Кто еще мог бы помочь? Вааг или Рик? Силонов сделал большую работу в русском Викисловаре, но мне пока трудно разобраться в принципе, хотя я знаю спряжение любого отдельного глагола. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 08:46, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
Возможно, что меньшее количество шаблонов будет означать, что являются более сложными ... подробнее шаблонов, проще. Нет, у меня нет таких материалов. Как и ты, я знаю, как спрягать глаголы, но я не знаю о классификациях. Вааг это тот, кто знает больше всего о классификации, и он также является тот, кто умеет создавать шаблоны. Ведь он гений. Рик понимает шаблоны, но я не думаю, что он много знает о русских глаголах. Я осмотрел Template:ru-verb-1-impf-ru 1a ... он выглядит довольно просто, но я не знаю, как применить его к другим глаголам. Я думаю, что будет необходимо для создания многих основных шаблонов, которые делают небольшие задачи, а затем вызвать некоторые из основных шаблонов в мастер-шаблоне. Но это становится трудно для меня. —Stephen (Talk) 10:50, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
"гл ru 1a" - это по классификации Зализняка. Я пока следую образцу русского викисловаря. По этому же образцу можно спрягать "вешать" и другие глаголы. Совершенная форма другая, но это отдельный параметр. Мне тоже было бы сложно работать по мастер-шаблону, но думаю с таким количеством параметров можно работать со многими глаголами. Как я уже говорил, для глаголов с изменяемой основой можно сделать двухосно́вный шаблон, как Шаблон:гл ru 5b-ж (подходит для "бежать"). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 11:16, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
Иногда то, что кажется трудным оказывается просто. Может быть, Вааг и Рик будут представить несколько хороших идей. На мой взгляд, этот проект кажется невыполнимой задачей, но, возможно, ты прав ... возможно, мы сможем достичь. —Stephen (Talk) 11:51, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
Думаю, дело пойдёт! Здесь можно скачать "Зализняк А. А. Грамматический словарь русского языка", см страницу 78 и дальше. Я переименовал щаблоны Template:ru-verb-1a-impf, Template:ru-verb-1a-pf, новый: Template:ru-verb-2a-impf (например: "ассистировать") Стараюсь добавить примеры и какую-то документацию. Смотри также страницы обсуждения к шаблонам. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 06:18, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
Я пытаюсь загрузить его, но я не думаю, что удастся. Это очень технический сорт скачивания, у меня нет необходимых навыков. До сих пор никакого прогресса. —Stephen (Talk) 08:12, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
Нужен µTorrent. Когда µTorrent будет установлен, этот файл скачается довольно быстро. Будет помещен в директорию "Preferences/Directories". Формат файла "*.djvu", можно читать разными программами, например DjVu Viewer. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 10:13, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
Я бы послал по имейлу, но файл очень большой, почти 15 мб. Напиши, если будут проблемы. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 10:16, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Стив, я думаю, мне придётся убрать противоположную совершенный/несовершенный вид и нормальную/возвратную форму из шаблонов. С шаблонами можно будет справиться (их будет очень много) только без них. Некоторые глаголы будут иметь три основы, как "жечь" (Шаблон:гл_ru_8b/b^). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:11, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Я пытался загрузить «Грамматический словарь русского языка», но мне не удалось. После полутора дней, µTorrent сообщает, что он по-прежнему обновлению семян (update seeds). Я не понимаю то, что программа пытается сделать. —Stephen (Talk) 00:46, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
Извини, что тебе пришлось мучиться (мучаться)! Думаю, что µTorrent неправильно установлен или его блокирует антивирусная программа или что-то в этом роде (программа против шпионского ПО). Я подумаю, как послать файл на 15 мб. Какой у тебя лимит на почтовом ящике на одно сообщение? У меня - 10 мегабайтов. Может быть легче его купить, чем скачать, но не знаю, где можно купить.
Я собрал все шаблоны глаголов, которые использует русский Викисловарь - User:Atitarev/Russian verb templates. Ссылки дают возможность посмотреть на сам шаблон и на глаголы. Не думаю, что придется конвертировать все. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 00:57, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
Извини, я не знаю лимита на почтовом ящике на одно сообщение. —Stephen (Talk) 01:15, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Chechen-Urartian connection[edit]

There's no Chechen Swadesh list on Wiktionary! I'm saying this. It's a shame! The Chechen language is important! If you look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Caucasian_languages you'll see that the Urartians were "the brothers" of the Chechens (= Nakh peoples)If you want the Cyrillic script, you can find it! That's all! Böri (talk) 08:39, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

забыться[edit]

This is a rather tricky Russian verb to understand. There are too many meanings. Forgive me. If it's ok for you, would you make an English article about this? Thank you. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 14:39, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Category:Russian terms needing attention[edit]

Привет, Стивен,

Сейчас в этой категории слишком много слов. Мне и Wanjuscha хватит надолго. Наверное можно замедлить создание новых статей на какое-то время? Тем более, что я какое-то время будут тратить на шаблоны для глаголов (присоединяйся, если хочешь). Если нетрудно, пожалуйста добавляй склонения для существительных и прилагательных (только для цельных слов - only solid words) и "head=", оставляя {{attention|ru}}, если есть сомнения. Я думаю, что не буду добавлять склонения в составные слова типа "американский бульдог". Спасибо за вклад! Будем бороться не только за количество, но и за качество :) --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 04:57, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Ну, ладно. Я хотел закончить буквой A, но я понимаю, что это много слов. —Stephen (Talk) 11:50, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
By the way, Anatoli, I agree with you about not putting declension on non-solid words. However, there might be a more elegant solution than just leaving it out. Would you be interested in a Russian copy of {{sl-decl-noun-see}}? For example, see the Slovene entry materni jezik. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:44, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
@Metaknowledge. Oops, sorry, I missed your comment. It looks interesting, thank you. Another reason I want to leave the declension is that non-solid words may be deleted at some stage if policies change and we get too many active deletionists. :) There are many cases where a different template or different templates would be required - it's with genitive constructs for example, where only the first part is declined, e.g. in день всех святых ("the day of all the saints") - only "день" (day) is declined. @Stephen, I've changed my mind, sorry! If you feel like adding Russian words, I won't ask you to slow down, even if you don't add inflection. They will be addressed sooner or later. We don't have volunteers to do this job. It's up to you, of course but your Russian skills are needed. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 06:04, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
When only the first part is declined, then that's the only part you need to feed to the template! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:02, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that's right, I didn't think about. That's what I started doing with Template:ru-decl-noun-see]. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 23:13, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

We don't seem to have a page for Tatar transliteration yet. I would assume that it should be identical to Bashkir (see WT:BA TR) but I just want to make sure. Thank you! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:20, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

I should clarify what I said before about Tatar transliteration on Wiktionary talk:Bashkir transliteration. Romanised Tatar has its own semi-standard way, which exists separately from Cyrillic orthography. Letters ä and a are used inconsistently (for Cyrillic "а", "я, "-ия") "ь" is often ignored. Spelling from Turkish, Crimean Tatar, English or other Turkic languages are used. Verifying what is right is difficult because romanised Tatar is not standardised and is driven by nationalists, not academics. Some Wikipedia Tatar pages are in Roman, Tatar Wiktionary is mixed too. The Russian Wiktionary made an attempt to bring them to one standard and transliteration is usually consistent but you will notice that "ь" is often ignored. There were some other inconsistencies but I don't remember now. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 23:38, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Ниже приводится система, которую я предлагаю для транслитерации татарской. Это почти как транслитерация башкирской, но некоторые различия.
а, ә, б, в, г, д, е, ё, ж, җ, з, и, й, к, л, м, н, ң, о, ө, п, р, с, т, у, ү, ф, х, һ, ц, ч, ш, щ, ъ, ы, ь, э, ю, я
a, ä, b, w, g/ğ, d, e/ye, yo, j, c, z, i, y, k, l, m, n, ñ, o, ö, p, r, s, t, u, ü, f, x, h, ts, ç, ş, şç, ʺ, ı, ’, e, yu, ya
—Stephen (Talk) 01:03, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
That looks good, I'd suggest ʺ ʹ for ъ ь. g/ğ, k/q is another inconsistency, which I forgot about. I think Tatar use "q" more often but I have no idea about g/ğ, k/q differences. The ending "-ия" is usually "-iyä". Perhaps we just create it for the sake of romanisation of Cyrillic entries and iron out differences later. (Writing in English for Metaknowledge's sake). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 01:10, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Да, это правда, татарский "к" = "k/q". Окончание "-ия" = "-iyä" кажется допустимым. Я согласен, давай создадим сейчас, и сгладим различия в дальнейшем. —Stephen (Talk) 01:24, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Ah, I did not realize that Metaknowledge wanted to read it. Sorry. I didn’t notice that the first comment was from him. —Stephen (Talk) 01:29, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks... I have to use machine translation to understand you, because I've never studied Russian in much detail. I still don't understand the k/q business — is it the same? Also, what about g/ğ? Is it just that Tatar texts don't distinguish them, or are they the same sound? Which should I use? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:30, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
It's going to be a problem for Lua - g/ğ and k/q, as I said, I have no idea about when and why. You can create a translit page, though, which will be very useful and think about Lua solution later. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 01:38, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes, this is like e/ɛ in Russian, it cannot be managed without human intervention. For Lua, I think we just use g and k. —Stephen (Talk) 01:45, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
OK. I'll make the page and set the module to g and k, but I'll edit the templates so that the Lua-created transliteration is only added if a human forgets to add it in the first place (which unfortunately happens a lot with Tatar). —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:52, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I made the Tatar transliteration page at WT:TT TR. —Stephen (Talk) 02:03, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
All done, Tatar's now Luacized for Cyrillic→Latin, but of course with those problems as noted above. As a side question, is the Cyrillic spelling extremely predictable from the Latin spelling? If so, I could write a Lua module for that too. Of course, because that would be linking to a page, it would have to be a lot more accurate than a transliteration. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:41, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I don’t know if you noticed, I had a mistake for И...it should transliterate to İ (not I). Ы = I. In converting Latin to Cyrillic, there are several problem letters. "E" could be either "е" or "э"; in rare cases, "şç" (щ) could be "шч"; and in rare cases "ts" (ц) could be "тс"; and "yo" (ё) could also be "йо". —Stephen (Talk) 03:59, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I noticed that and I fixed the module, too. I guess Latin→Cyrillic has problems too, so I'll leave that alone for now. Thanks! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 04:26, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
I asked a Tatar speaker and was told that following а, о, у, or ы, the letters г and к are ğ or q (respectively) and after any other letters they are k or g (respectively). I'm not sure if I can work this into the module, but if I can't, I'll bother Ignatus again. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:28, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
That might produce a better result, but it doesn’t account for all occurrences. There are lots of words that begin with ğ or q, like ğafu itegez ("excuse me"). —Stephen (Talk) 03:45, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Степаныч[edit]

One question. Is this a patryonomic name or a surname in Russian. And I think there is a need of a separate category for patryonomic names in Russian. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 12:50, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, answering again for Stephen. It's a patronymic (not patryonomic), a colloquial form of "Степанович". Many or most patronymics (the full forms) can also be surnames but it's less common with Russian. Polish, Belarusian and some Ukrainian surnames can also have similar ending. Surnames with -ович/-евич endings serve as indication of a surname of from other Slavic nations (perhaps generations back). In the former Yugoslavia, the surnames ending in -ович are too common. Thus, Павлович is a patronymic in Russia but a surname in Serbia, Croatia, etc (Pavlović). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 13:07, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 13:58, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Russian names, Rezemov & Romanov[edit]

Hi Stephen,

could you tell me if there are any rules regarding the stress on parts of Russian names? I guessed Rezemov had the stress on the second syllable, because I knew that Romanov was pronounced that way. Anyway, I judged wrong, but I'd like to know if I could've there are any rules. I'd be very grateful! Thank you! 77.175.45.61 18:03, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Unfortunately, Russian stress is very unpredictable. There are a few cases where you can be fairly confident of the stress, as in words that end in -ический (-íchesky) or -ающий (-áyushchy), but generally you have to learn the stress when you learn the word. This is the reason that we are so diligent about marking Russian stress here. —Stephen (Talk) 19:12, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for telling me :D now I feel like less of a fool ^_^ I really, really appreciate everything that you do around here :) 94.208.193.73 21:04, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

The surname Rezemov (Реземов) must be stressed on the first syllable - Ре́земов (I think). It's just a feeling of a native speaker, it's not a common surname. Confirming that there are no rules regarding the word stress. It has be learned or told. Dictionaries show word stresses in lemma (dictionary form) and inflected forms (as the stress can shift). With uncommon surnames, Russians make mistakes too, so people tell others how to pronounce their surnames. Sometimes people change the stress on their surname deliberately, making it impossible to guess. My surname is Титарёв (Titarjóv) but letter "ё" is usually written as "е", so people (Russian native speakers) often called me Титарев (Títarev). So word stresses may cause problems for native speakers as well and not just with surnames. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 22:18, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Fraktur in Unicode[edit]

Hi. Do you have the latest version of the UniFraktur fonts?

The Unicode rendering is getting pretty good, to my inexpert eyes. My Safari and Firefox compose the ch, ſſ, ſt, and tz ligatures with UniFraktur Cook font, but I can only get Firefox to do the ch in UniFraktur Maguntia.

These fonts even have a feature that automatically substitutes the long s in the right places, but it is not working in Safari.

Is “bedeutungs­loſe” correct with the short s in the middle? Did I miss anything when I transcribed this text? Thanks.

Aber — wenn von Weiſſagungen auf den Heiland im A. T. noch ferner die Rede ſehn ſoll, iſt es möglich, daß wir die typiſche Anſicht der alten Zeit über­haupt fallen laſſen können?

That all looks correct to me. The blockquote command looks a little intimidating, but the results look great. That’s a nice Fraktur font. —Stephen (Talk) 01:39, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
That CSS would normally go in the style sheet, and I indiscriminately turned on all of the features for all of the browsers. With a little research and testing it should be possible to pare it down to what’s really necessary. Michael Z. 2013-03-29 16:08 z

Your edits to ля мажор[edit]

I noticed that you added {{l}} to the head= parameter. While that isn't wrong, I predict that we will probably be adding code to the Lua version of most headword-line templates, that automatically converts all links in the headword to language links. Module:links already has/had some code to that effect, although it isn't in use yet. Adding {{l}} would interfere with such code, since it adds extra code that would confuse the "parser" that recognises links. So even if it's an improvement currently, it will need to be removed again eventually. I've been hesitant to make this change myself since we have Lua, because of this possibility. —CodeCat 02:23, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Also, on a completely different note... is that declension table really correct? It looks like it should really decline as a noun+adjective to me, not just like a noun. —CodeCat 02:24, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay. There are probably lots of these...I hope there is a way to clean them with a bot.
There isn’t any adjective, just two nouns, one of which is indeclinable. —Stephen (Talk) 02:28, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Arabic article[edit]

Hi Stephen. I'm still not very active on wiktionary, so before I disrupt current consensus I wanted to ask you a question. Is there a reason why the entry for "alphabet" in Arabic (الألفباء) has the definite article al-? Shouldn't it be moved to ألفباء? Thanks. Abjiklam (talk) 12:27, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I don’t remember. That was eight years ago. As you know, the definite article is a problem for an Arabic dictionary that is meant for use by English speakers. If someone doesn’t know Arabic and just wants to know what a certain word means, such as الألفباء, he searches for that. Eight years ago, our search engine would not find ألفباء from that search. I think the search engine has improved since then. But I’m only guessing, I don’t remember what the reason was eight years ago.
I have not been working on Arabic for a long time now, and I don’t think we have anyone here who is really active in Arabic. So you should just do what you think best. —Stephen (Talk) 12:47, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer, I hadn't noticed it has been so long since the entry was created. I guess the ideal solution would be to have a redirect from indefinite to definite nouns. Are there any conventions that are followed for the other languages that attach the article to the word? Abjiklam (talk) 18:58, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
Not many languages like Arabic. Outside of the Semitic languages, the North Caucasian languages are the only other ones I know of that prefix the article. In Abkhaz and other Caucasian languages, the definite article prefix is often required, so we put the word with the definite article (if it is needed). There are some languages that use a suffix for this, such as Bulgarian, Romanian, Albanian, and Swedish. Usually the definite article is taken away, but there are usually a few cases where it is needed. We have never thought of a good convention to handle these problems, other than hoping that search engines become smarter. —Stephen (Talk) 23:02, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Template:cia/script[edit]

Please check before making changes like this which can break things. Writing Cia-Cia in hangeul does not seem to have ever really caught on much, but somehow we have entries in it in both scripts on Wiktionary. Removing script support for the ones written in hangeul does not serve any purpose. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 14:17, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

The script would have had to have been approved by the Indonesian Government, and it never was. Yes, it appears that Visviva entered some words in Korean script, but those spellings were only proposed, they are not valid spellings. I changed the script back because it was making the language’s Latin script look funny. —Stephen (Talk) 14:32, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Actually, the edit didn't remove any support. The /script template is used to determine the default script that is used when no script has been provided. But it doesn't say in any way which scripts are "allowed". This is perfectly valid: {{l|en|hello|sc=Cyrl}}. The only thing that the other scripts (besides the first, default) are used for, as far as I know, is to show a list of scripts that the language uses in its category page. So Stephen's edit only changed the text at the top of Category:Cia-Cia language, nothing more. —CodeCat 14:37, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
If a spelling is used, in a context like this I'd say it's a valid spelling. Visviva used quotations to support some of her entries, so obviously there is written material in Cia-Cia in hangeul. The hangeul font changes don't bother me as much as the Latin ones, so I guess it doesn't matter much, as I was clearly somewhat ignorant (thanks CodeCat). The problem is just that sc= isn't specified enough, and that the category page is now arguably inaccurate. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 14:44, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
I have not seen the material Visviva was quoting from, but I suspect it was under the heading of protologism. Cia-Cia speakers cannot read or write in Hangeul. I think I remember reading that at one time, there were 190 students (out of 79,000 speakers) recruited to try to learn it. My guess is, the guy who originally proposed the idea wrote up some sample transliterations into Hangeul. That wouldn’t make the spellings valid. —Stephen (Talk) 14:56, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
For example, see 스리갈라. Is that protologistic? I think that's somewhat proscriptive. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 15:01, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
It is not proscriptive in the least. I don’t see anything in that entry that shows it is a valid spelling in Cia-Cia, now or ever. Where is this document/book or whatever it is? To me, it looks like a sample text that the original proponent drafted and transliterated into Hangeul as an example of his idea. That is a protologism, nothing more. And, like most protologisms, nothing ever came of it and the spellings were never adopted or used. —Stephen (Talk) 15:10, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
The source appears to be a story called 뼁겜발라 돔바 마이 스리갈라 (penggembala domba mai surigala = "the shepherd and the wolf"). I can’t find any book named 뼁겜발라 돔바 마이 스리갈라. I think it’s nothing more than a transliteration of a little story that the guy who thought the idea up came up with. I even searched for any book that contained the word 뼁겜발라...could not find one (except for the mention at Wiktionary, of course). —Stephen (Talk) 16:07, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Wiktionary definitions[edit]

Hi Stephen,

could you tell me why sometimes when I search for English adjectives the definition refers me to a noun, while at other times the noun refers me to an adjective? For example quintessential or eclecticism. To me, it is rather strange to do that, but I can imagine that in English that is not strange at all. Thanks 83.86.151.41 12:14, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

quintessential is simply the noun quintessence + the adjectival suffix -al. On the other hand, eclecticism is the adjective eclectic + the nominal suffix -ism. Most words have a range of meanings and definitions, and it does not make sense to try to define a word exhaustively at its base form (citation form), and then also add the same definitions (with modifications for a different part of speech) for its derivations such as -ly, -ism, -s, -ed, -y, -ic, -ous, -al, and so on...and then try to keep all of the sets of definitions in synchrony as additions and changes are made to one form or another. So we put the definition only at the citation form, then link derivations back to it as we did with quintessential or eclecticism. —Stephen (Talk) 17:24, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

arrivederci[edit]

¿Cómo se translitera en español? --Æ&Œ (talk) 22:02, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

I’m not sure what you mean by that. You want to know how that would be spelt phonetically in Spanish? If that’s what you meant, then in Spanish: arrivederchi. If you meant to ask what it means in Spanish, then despedida. —Stephen (Talk) 07:43, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Merci. I meant phonetically. The transliteration is simpler than I thought, now that I see it. --Æ&Œ (talk) 08:03, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
The d's would be pronounced differently, though. — [Ric Laurent] — 19:11, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes. Also the "rr" and the "v". —Stephen (Talk) 19:17, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Having never actually studied Italian, I wasn't sure about the rr, but the v was a silly oversight. I should've caught that. Still, it's funny how strange Spanish is. I guess they got just a little bit of that weird Celtic influence that raped French so thoroughly? And Portuguese. — [Ric Laurent] — 02:14, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

flojamente = perezosamente?[edit]

--Æ&Œ (talk) 00:56, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

No, not the same: perezosamente = lazily, indolently, slothfully, sluggishly, shiftlessly, lackadaisically. flojamente = loosely, slackly, floppily, sluggishly, limply, flabbily, lamely. Sometimes you’ve seen those large shipping packages that are tightly bound together with thin metal bands? The bands are called flejes. If they are not properly applied, or if some of the packaged material is removed, the bands become loose, which is called flejes flojos (loose bands). —Stephen (Talk) 01:09, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Usurpation error[edit]

Hi, I only wanted William to be usurped to make way for the SUL over on de.wiktionary, I didn't want WilliamUK to become part of that account. I'm only using WilliamUK so that I can request renaming/usurping without having to edit logged-out. Please usurp the current User:William back to User:WilliamUK, and then I will create User:William via on this wiki via the SUL it's intended for. Cheers. WilliamUK (talk) 16:37, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

steluță[edit]

[4]

Can you review this entry? I’m worried that it is misdefined, particularly from the first sense. --Æ&Œ (talk) 06:07, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

I don’t think either translation is good. I would translate the first one as estrella, and the second one as asterisco (liturgia). That is, the parenthetic "liturgia" is important, because it means that particular kind of asterisk, and not the typographical asterisk. —Stephen (Talk) 07:45, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Is it better now, sir? --Æ&Œ (talk) 07:49, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
It’s better. I’m not familiar with the Spanish Wiktionary formatting or anything, so I don’t know whether the design and layout are proper for that wiktionary. There is no reason to capitalize religión, and the phrase needs the definite article: En la religión. A third definition is: actriz principiante. —Stephen (Talk) 07:56, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
The template was made by a native hispanophone. --Æ&Œ (talk) 08:00, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Well, then it’s on him if the template text is not quite right. Since it’s a template, someone there can change it if they ever have a mind to do so. The translations looks good to me. —Stephen (Talk) 08:13, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
[5] --Æ&Œ (talk) 22:02, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that actually sounds right. Spanish has a lot of little quirks and zigzags just under the surface that jump out and surprise you. As for the complexity of plantillas, however, I don’t think it extends to the display text (but in a few rare cases, the text actually can be tricky...in any case, I’d leave the plantillas for them to worry about or ignore as they see fit). —Stephen (Talk) 01:48, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

More locutions[edit]

a la cima de
al extremo de
a la punta de
al término de

I am going to guess that these are the Spanish equivalents of:

au bout de

but I need confirmation. --Æ&Œ (talk) 06:19, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

I would say that it means al cabo de, al final de, después de. In practice, there are many other ways to translate it, depending on the entire sentence. —Stephen (Talk) 03:02, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Telugu audio files[edit]

I have started uploading audio files for Telugu words. Please see అమ్మ. Am I giving the links correctly. Can you help me adding IPA of these words. Thanking you.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 15:54, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

@ Raja: I think you did a good job with the audio link for అమ్మ. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 23:22, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
P.S. I mean the sound. How about naming it as "Te-amma.ogg"? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 00:27, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Rajasekhar. I think you should name your audio files like this: Te-అమ్మ.ogg (that is, Te- plus the actual page name, such as అమ్మ). Later, if you want to re-do one because you don’t like the sound, you can name it Te-అమ్మ-1.ogg. Then the pronunciation link would be like this: * {{audio|Te-అమ్మ.ogg|Audio (TE)}} —Stephen (Talk) 01:13, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

sum qui sum[edit]

je suis ce que je suis

je suis celui qui est

Are these equally good translations? --Æ&Œ (talk) 05:32, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

No. Both are good French, but the meanings are a little different. je suis ce que je suis = "I am what I am". If someone asks you what you are, you could say this. je suis celui qui est is a good translation of what God said to Moses. Another translation puts it: je suis celui qui dit «Je suis»; and still another has it: je suis l'Être invariable. —Stephen (Talk) 07:35, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

разбросаны[edit]

I have a question. Is this a gerund or an adjective? It's rather confusing. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 14:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

It the the short form of the adjective разбросанный (razbrosannyj), so it is a type of adjective. However, the adjective разбросанный (razbrosannyj) is a past participle, so разбросаны is a short form of a past participle. It is both an adjective and a participle. It can only be used only as a predicate.
В парке на западе Москвы разбросан смертельный яд.
A deadly poison is scattered in a west Moscow park. —Stephen (Talk) 14:54, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
How would you use it attributively? Like "scattered poison"? —CodeCat 14:58, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
To use it attributively, you have to use the long form: разбросанный (razbrosannyj) яд (jad). —Stephen (Talk) 15:10, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
I made разбросать. I don't know whether I did it right or not. As I'm only used to edit/create articles in the Korean Wiktionary. OTL --KoreanQuoter (talk) 15:23, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
It was pretty good, but the wrong aspect. It is perfective. I corrected it. —Stephen (Talk) 11:08, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Well done, guys. Let me know if I can help with using the new conjugation templates. You can get a hint of what the type to use @Russian Wiktionary. @KoreanQuoter, it also provides "совершенный вид" or "несовершенный вид" (perfective/imperfective aspect). Do not hesitate to ask. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 12:48, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

femmelette & mujercita[edit]

Yes, in that one sense. I think femmelette is more commonly translated by mariquita. —Stephen (Talk) 05:57, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

asdfg[edit]

Is ‘mi acento es totalmente real’ bad Spanish? --Æ&Œ (talk) 02:28, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Not bad per se, but I don’t think it means anything. —Stephen (Talk) 07:11, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
So, what else would be a meaningful translation of ‘my accent is totally real?’ --Æ&Œ (talk) 13:37, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
I don’t know the meaning of "my accent is totally real." As far as I know, all accents are real, and all are fully real. I don’t think there are partially real accents. Is it supposed to mean "perfect", as in "my Spanish accent is perfect"? Or "genuine", as in "my American accent is genuine"? —Stephen (Talk) 14:00, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
You know what a fake accent is, right? I think that ‘genuine’ is the correct term here. --Æ&Œ (talk) 14:38, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
A fake accent is an attempt to reproduce the accent of a region that is recognizable as contrived and incorrect. Probably the most common phrase of this type would be "mi acento es perfecto". Others include "me acento es típico", "mi acento es natural", or "mi acento representa el acento inglés de Mánchester", for example. The opposite could be "me dicen que tengo un acento extraño". —Stephen (Talk) 01:05, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Is tal o tal a good translation of tel ou tel? --Æ&Œ (talk) 23:12, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

No, the meaning is different. I would say that the Spanish translations of tel ou tel would be tal o cual, uno u otro, esto o aquello, así o asá, algún, cada, determinado, particular, en particular, específicos, and individuales. —Stephen (Talk) 04:21, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Is l’un ou l’autre a good synonym of tel ou tel? --Æ&Œ (talk) 06:46, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
I think it’s a good synonym for one of the senses of tel ou tel. Not for the others. —Stephen (Talk) 08:04, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
Hm, there appears to be only one sense (so far). --Æ&Œ (talk) 16:03, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
More often it means particular, specific, individual:
une évaluation effectuée pour prendre une décision sur tel ou tel élève.
an assessment being carried out to make a decision about an individual student.
Devriez-vous continuer de travailler avec tel ou tel partenaire ?
Should you continue working with a particular partner?
pour des échanges de vues sur tel ou tel sujet bien précis.
to discuss specific topics. —Stephen (Talk) 23:23, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

[6]
Thoughts? --Æ&Œ (talk) 23:46, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

I don’t know about their policies or formatting, but as far as the words go, it seems okay, except for part of speech, and I’m not keen on indifféremment. I would think that déterminé, particulier, spécifique would be better synonyms. The part of speech is adjetivo. Also, it has forms for feminine and plural: telle ou telle, telles ou telles, and tels ou tels. —Stephen (Talk) 00:09, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
If the entry is longer than one word, then it is usually classified as a locution, or, failing that, a ‘refrán.’ Pretty similar to Wiktionnaire, too. You are correct that it is not an adverbial locution, which I blundered (probably because I type too fast).
Feel free to take another review now that I changed it. I hope that you do not mind me using you as a consultant. --Æ&Œ (talk) 00:24, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

How does one translate French spasmer? I would say espasmar, but that is considered antiquated by the Real Academia Española. --Æ&Œ (talk) 00:37, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

tener espasmos, temblar, dar calambre. These would be the translation of se spasmer. As far as I can remember, it is always used reflexively in French (se). —Stephen (Talk) 01:04, 1 June 2013 (UTC)


ne pas perdre une seconde and no perder un segundo are good translations of each other, yes? --Æ&Œ (talk) 06:21, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Is a greși este uman a good translation of errare humanum est? I’m afraid that it is not citable enough, regardless… --Æ&Œ (talk) 02:04, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Are desconocer and méconnaître synonyms (pretending that they belong to the same language)? --Æ&Œ (talk) 04:41, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Do you know of any synthetic Spanish synonym for the French verb? --Æ&Œ (talk) 20:34, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
Not sure what you mean by synthetic, but méconnaître means pasar por alto, ignorar, dejar de reconocer, infravalorar. —Stephen (Talk) 20:57, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
‘Synthetic’ meaning ‘one word.’ --Æ&Œ (talk) 21:01, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
Oh, than no. There is not one word in Spanish that perfectly means méconnaître. The translation of méconnaître into Spanish takes many forms, most needing more than one word. —Stephen (Talk) 21:04, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Is a las calendas griegas good Spanish? --Æ&Œ (talk) 05:14, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it’s good. until the twelfth of never. —Stephen (Talk) 05:20, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
Th’reason I’m asking is because it’s rare on Google Books and Google Groups. It could probably survive the R.F.V. process, but I’m disappointed in how uncommon it is. --Æ&Œ (talk) 05:28, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
I found quite a few in Google Books. Nevertheless, the entry should probably be calendas griegas, because the preposition can be other things besides a: para las calendas griegas, por las calendas griegas.
But now I see that we have articles for ad kalendas Graecas, alle calende greche, and aux calendes grecques, so maybe we should have a las calendas griegas as well. —Stephen (Talk) 06:44, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

What are Spanish Germanisms? I don’t mind providing some synonyms for common words that have good synonyms, but there are so many common words that need to have synonyms added that I doubt I could ever put a dent in such a project. —Stephen (Talk) 18:30, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
>What are Spanish Germanisms?
Spanish terms that have an origin in Proto‐Germanic. This category seems O.K. to start out with. (If you really want a challenge, you can plough through here.)
My goal now is to create thesauri on Wikcionario for these terms. I already made [7] and [8]. --Æ&Œ (talk) 18:49, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Shouldn’t be a problem. Some of them don’t have synonyms, as far as I know. I don’t think given names have synonyms. —Stephen (Talk) 22:08, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

I think this one is more complicated than most. I think it has different uses, belongs to different parts of speech, and has different translations. It needs to have examples. I think you should ask SemperBlotto what he knows about it. In general, I would say that in Spanish, tale quale means tal cual, como, así como, al igual que, según, tal como, tal y como. An example of one common sense might be:
è tale quale l'avevo lasciato = es exactamente como lo dejé.
Another example:

O.K., I jacked around with the entry a bit. I’m worried that I should split or combine some senses, so that’s why I want a review. (By the way, [16].) --Æ&Œ (talk) 08:18, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Hmm. I’ve never seen banir used in Spanish before. It must be very rare. I don’t really know about splitting the entry, that’s something that I see a lot of on some of the wiktionaries, but I don’t know why it should be done. To me, unless there is a major difference, such as different genders, different parts of speech, different declensions or conjugations, pronunciations, or etymologies, I just put them together. That’s how all of the bilingual dictionaries that I have used over the decades have done it. For me, splitting it makes it more difficult to use. —Stephen (Talk) 08:51, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

buena noche is a valid synonym of buenas noches? --Æ&Œ (talk) 05:20, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
I guess it would be a synonym. buena noche is not used very often, and the meaning is a little different. The term buenas noches (originally buenas noches nos dé Dios, may God give us good nights) can be either a greeting (good evening) or a farewell (good evening, good night); buena noche is usually only a farewell (a good night) or is used in the description of a night (hace una buena noche, it’s a nice night; que pase buena noche, have a nice night; una buena noche de sueño, a good night’s sleep; buena noche de descando, a good night’s rest). —Stephen (Talk) 08:26, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I was hesitant to make it since I am not completely certain about what the plural in Sardinian is, but judging from my spellchecker, it’s the accusative -s. Any way, it should be fixed now. --Æ&Œ (talk) 05:27, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Yesternight I had a dream where your house was behind mine, and I blew it up with an explosive. I lied that I was asleep when ‘someone’ blew it up, so I supposedly did not know who did it. You had to stay at my house for a while. Oh, and supposedly you are rich, so it was not that bad. But…yeah, sorry. I was curious to see the reactions I guess. --Æ&Œ (talk) 13:43, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

It probably comes out of the evening news, where they often have stories of homes and other buildings exploding, sometimes accidentally, usually deliberately. I think dreams are intended to relive scenarios in order to relieve stress about them. The world situation may be bothering you. —Stephen (Talk) 14:06, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Input[edit]

I need your input on this discussion. Thank you. --KoreanQuoter (talk)

@KoreanQuoter, I have posted more on the topic. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 13:39, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Anatoli is right, you should do it like this:
==Russian==

===Verb===
{{head|ru|verb form|tr=pozovú}}
# {{first-person singular of|позвать|lang=ru}}

There is another temmplate that you could use instead, which I think is very nice and which you might like to consider:
==Russian==

===Verb===
{{head|ru|verb form|tr=pozovú}}
# {{conjugation of|позвать||1|s|fut|ind|lang=ru}}

—Stephen (Talk) 13:48, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
From now on, I will use the second suggestion that Stephen has shown. Sorry about that, Atitarev. It came as first-person singular pf future indicative of позвать. Can we change the pf into perfective for more consistancy? Thank you very much, all. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 14:14, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
@KoreanQuoter. No need to apologise, what Stephen suggested is very good. Don't bother adding definitions/translations. Users should be encouraged to look at the main entry, some verbs have a lot of meanings and extensive usage. For forms, which are derived form from both pf/impf, you'll need two lines (as below). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 23:28, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes, perfective is probably better. —Stephen (Talk) 14:20, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
I don't think imperfective or perfective should be in the form definitions. It's already a part of the lemma. It would be a bit like saying "feminine plural form of (a feminine noun)". —CodeCat 14:42, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
Probably not needed in the form of. They would just make it harder to read. However, there are a few verbs that can be either perfective or imperfective, with different meanings (such as проводить)...and a good number of verbs that are both perfective and imperfective (but same meaning), such as абсорбировать. —Stephen (Talk) 14:57, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
How about using the term biaspectual (двувидовые глаголы)? Would that work? --KoreanQuoter (talk) 15:20, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
I don’t think so. In the case of провожу, if it is marked present tense, then it can only be imperfective. If it is marked future tense, then it must be perfective. A form like проводящий can only be imperfective. There are only a few forms (I think just the four past-tense forms) that can be either perfective or imperfective. So, in the case of проводить, it is really two different verbs that have the same spelling and pronunciation. It’s verbs like абсорбировать that are perfective and imperfective in the same verb, but even so, most of the verb forms can only be perfective or imperfective, depending on the tense. —Stephen (Talk) 15:52, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
From what I can understand about Russian verbs, they are mainly divided into 4 categories: imperfective, perfective, biaspectual, and "broken" (like проводить). How can we apply this to the template? --KoreanQuoter (talk) 15:57, 3 June 2013 (UTC)
I have never heard of dividing Russian verbs into those categories. Besides those, there are also verbs that have only one aspect (perfective or imperfective, but not both); and the perfective has subaspects, such as the semelfactive, so some verbs have imperfective, general perfective, and semelfactive. Besides these, Russian verbs of motion often have separate forms for concrete and abstract. If you wanted to do something for biaspectual or "broken" verbs, you could make categories for them, such as "Category:Russian biaspectual verbs". As for "broken" verbs, I have never heard them referred to by that word (or by any other word). I’m not sure that "broken" is the best term for them. —Stephen (Talk) 07:31, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
As for the verbs like проводить, I think there is a need of a Russian linguist expert to sort this out. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 14:39, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Telugu surnames[edit]

The indexing of English surnames is good. They are using Template:Surnameindex. I would like to develop the Telugu surnames in Telugu wiktionary. Can you make the template work there. Thainking you.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 13:16, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I have made te:మూస:surnameindex and te:అనుబంధం:పేర్లు. I think you should look at them and make any necessary language corrections before I continue with them. —Stephen (Talk) 12:22, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
I will make the language corrections. Does the same template is used for given names also. Make it work for them also. I am starting my work and transfer the data from the existing data base. How to link these indexes to English Index. Thank you very much.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 14:04, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
I have added some surnames starting with the first letter: అనుబంధం:ఇంటిపేర్లు/అ. Can you tell me how to make the arrangement in each letter page.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 14:09, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
I have never worked with names before, so I do not know much about how they work. If you can find an English page that has the arrangement that you mean, then you can probably do it the same way.
For te:అనుబంధం:ఇంటిపేర్లు/అ, we need to copy and translate Appendix:Surnames/A.
It seems that {{maleindex}} and {{femaleindex}} are used for given names. After we finish te:మూస:surnameindex and te:అనుబంధం:పేర్లు, we will need to copy and translate {{maleindex}} and {{femaleindex}}.
For the initial letters, such as aaa-aaz, aba-abz, aca-acz, you need to decide what Telugu letters to use. For example, do you want to show only అ - అఱ, or do you want to have అ - అకః, అఖ - అఖః, and so on? అక - అకః would include అం అః అక అకా అకి అకీ అకు అకూ అకృ అకౄ అకె అకే అకై అకొ అకో అకౌ అకం అకః. Or is there another way that you prefer? —Stephen (Talk) 16:03, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
I have started making pages for each of the Telugu alphabet. If the entries are many more; then we can think of dividing them further. Thanks alot.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 16:33, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
For given names: te:మూస:maleindex and te:మూస:femaleindex. —Stephen (Talk) 18:39, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
The links to Telugu names alphabet from te:అనుబంధం:పేర్లు and te:అనుబంధం:ఇంటిపేర్లు/అ are different. Why.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 02:46, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
I did not see this question before. The links should be the same. I have corrected them. —Stephen (Talk) 04:49, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
I have completed data transfer in surnameindex. Thank you for helping me in the indexing.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 02:54, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
You’re welcome. —Stephen (Talk) 03:06, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
I have completed the indexing of Telugu male names.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 09:15, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
I have completed the indexing of Telugu female names. Please check them. How to get these names lists; is there any source.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 09:45, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
I have updated the Male names starting with te:అనుబంధం:పురుషుల పేర్లు/అ. Can you show me how to subdivide the page into further sections.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 10:21, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I added another section to te:అనుబంధం:పురుషుల_పేర్లు/అ so you can see how to do it. You can click on అకకౌ or అఖఖౌ at the top in order to go to that section. —Stephen (Talk) 12:08, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I have completed that letter te:అనుబంధం:పురుషుల_పేర్లు/అ. Can you please check whether it has come out accurately.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 14:44, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that all looks correct to me. —Stephen (Talk) 14:47, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Please see this letter te:అనుబంధం:పురుషుల పేర్లు/క. According to the earlier system, we can not accomodate కాంతారావు -- కామరాజు -- కామశాస్త్రి -- కాముడు -- కుటుంబరావు -- కుమార్ -- కుమారస్వామి -- కోటయ్య -- కోటి -- కోటీశ్వరరావు. Probably we have to adopt another system of including these words. Please advise.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 09:48, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Yes, we can change it if you want to. To me, క-కౌ includes క, కా, కి, కీ, కు, కూ, కృ, కౄ, కె, కే, కై, కొ, కో, కౌ, కం, కః, which accomodates all of these. If you don’t like క-కౌ, then what do you want to change it to? —Stephen (Talk) 09:57, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
The earlier system is fine for Vowels. But for the Consonants we should follow another system. The above sequence should be fine. Can you change in the index templates for these letters. I will make divisions in the letter page. Thanking you.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 11:48, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
What change do you mean? Do you mean changing కక-కకౌ to కక-కకః? —Stephen (Talk) 12:06, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
It is not working well for the Consonants. The problem with Telugu language is Ligatures. The present system does not support them. What to do.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 12:52, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I don’t understand what you mean. —Stephen (Talk) 12:56, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I mean In English names index, you are subclassifying based on the second letter. But in the Telugu names index, the first letter is itself is changing. In the template, there is no provision for changing first letter; This is taking place in Telugu ligatures in the first letter. How to incorporate this into Telugu language namesindex.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 14:27, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I still don’t understand what you mean. In English, if you click on Aca-Acz, you go down to Aca-Acz. In Telugu, if you click on కక-కకః, you should go down to కక-కకః. If కక-కకః is not what you want as one of the headers, you just have to decide what header you want to have and make the changes to have that header. —Stephen (Talk) 17:30, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Sorry ! I could not clarify convincingly. But it is not satisfactory. Please revert back to the earlier subgrouping.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 10:23, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
Then you prefer to change కక-కకః back to కక-కకకౌ, as on te:అనుబంధం:పురుషుల_పేర్లు/అ? I thought that there was a problem with కక-కకకౌ, and that it did not include all the ligatures of . It is no problem to change it back, but if it was not correct, then why change it back? —Stephen (Talk) 10:33, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Кто к нам пожаловал! Kакими судьба́ми?[edit]

Привет Стив,

Я затрудняюсь с переводом на английский этих фраз в "пожаловать". Как можно идеоматично выразить то же самое по-английски? Не могу объяснить, но ударение в фразе "Kакими судьбами!" обычно падает на "а". --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:07, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Привет, Анатолий.
Самый лучший способ, что я могу перевести: Look who has come to visit! What brings you here? —Stephen (Talk) 08:43, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Спасибо. Звучит менее идиоматично, зато естественно. Добавлю примеры в статью. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 03:27, 8 June 2013 (UTC)


Request[edit]

If you are a Wikipedia administrator, is there some way to discuss about a trouble that I have with my account by email or in other ways, for assistance, any thoughts, would be thankful.--GoShow (talk) 13:59, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

I edit Wikipedia articles, but I am not an administrator there. You were blocked on Wikipedia for using socks. That is a very serious misdeed...if you had done it here on Wiktionary, you would have been blocked indefinitely right away. Wikipedia has given you lots of chances but they have run out of patience. If you ever manage to open another account on Wikipedia, you should learn to obey the rules...or they will block you again. I don’t know what else to tell you. —Stephen (Talk) 11:52, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Telugu verbs[edit]

There are few hundreds of en:Category:Telugu verbs. I want to classify them; to begin with into transitive and intransitive forms. What template to use in English wiktionary.Rajasekhar1961 (talk) 10:54, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Spanish verbs are classified as ending in -ar, -er, or -ir. They add the category such as Category:Spanish verbs ending in -ar‎ to each verb. You could add Category:Telugu transitive verbs or Category:Telugu intransitive verbs to each Telugu verb. If you want, you could also add {{transitive|lang=te}} in front of a definition. —Stephen (Talk) 11:05, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
If there were a te-verb template, it could be added to that. Like {{te-verb|i}} or {{te-verb|t}}. — [Ric Laurent] — 18:38, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
There is, {{te-verb}}. But I don’t know how to add it. —Stephen (Talk) 08:20, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

User:189.74.41.9[edit]

The second I saw the new entry for បៃតង, I was skeptical- gooseberries are temperate-climate plants that would be out of place in the tropics. Still, I know nothing about Khmer, so I spent half an hour trying to piece together enough evidence to decide what to do. Although there's an online dictionary that has this definition, using Google Translate on the km WT entry and on a search at km WP seemed to indicate something about the color green. Then I noticed the interwiki to a non-existent Lao entry, which prompted me to check the contributor's other contributions, which led me to the bogus translations at strawberry, and finally to your posts on their talk page. Once I had confirmation that they were full of it, I immediately deleted បៃតង as "no usable content given"- it's a real word, but everything in the entry is either wrong or too unreliable to trust. I wasted a lot of time on this, but you saved me having to waste lots more time figuring out how to explain my vague guesses in an rfv, not to mention waiting for someone to check on it. Thanks! Chuck Entz (talk) 06:15, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Right. Ever since Google translate recently opened up Khmer, we’ve been getting Khmer translations from there. If someone is careful and knows what he’s doing, some of them are good...but looking for Khmer words for gooseberry or milkshake is usually a dead giveaway. Another is that Khmer is a very difficult script, and it’s not possible to do a reasonable machine transliteration like we do for simple alphabets like Russian. Khmer, like Arabic, requires knowing how the word is pronounced independently of the spelling, and the spelling only offers clues to the pronunciation. So Google translate, although I think it makes a heroic attempt to transliterate Khmer, makes a dog’s dinner of it, and over 99% of the time it’s wrong. So if someone’s transliteration is the same as the Google transliteration, that’s the stake in the heart.
Another trap they tend to fall into is trying to find words that are simply alien to Khmer culture, such as artichoke. There are a couple of online Khmer dictionaries that offer "translations" for artichoke, but they are not really translations, they are explanations...the Khmer for artichoke only says "a kind of vegetable" (but you have to be able to read some Khmer to know that). All of the Cambodian dictionaries that I have seen, including Google translate, are prone to doing this. In actual Khmer texts, Khmer writers frequently just use the English word (in the Roman alphabet) for names and words that Khmer lacks, such as Goa, Nagaland, and artichoke. Occasionally there may be a transliteration (such as the word for strawberry, or many country names), but their script lacks many common foreign sounds, such as f, z, sh, and so on, so Cambodians often prefer to use the foreign word in the Roman alphabet. —Stephen (Talk) 08:50, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Several things[edit]

Thank you very much. KoreanQuoter (talk) 15:29, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

In the sense of Orthodox faith, вера (vera) is not a proper noun and should not be capitalized unless it is at the beginning of a sentence. However, some people might want to show their respect and devotion to the word by capitalizing it. I will look at the verbs. —Stephen (Talk) 15:44, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. If it's ok, can you check паковаться? Thank you. BTW, I'm doing my best to put more Russian entries into the Korean Wiktionary. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 17:26, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
