I have lived in Rhode Island since I was 2 1/2 years old. I was born in Virginia, though, and have no relatives there. Tharthan 20:34, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Do you think you could provide some input to Wiktionary:Requests_for_deletion/Others#Template:WS:rfvBP? There, I have nominated a template you have created for deletion, and we are unclear what the template was supposed to be used for. Thank you.
Hi, you've got a working Spanish conjugation bot, right? Could I feed it sobrevolar please.
Can you move "Wikisaurus:homosexual" to "Wikisaurus:homosexual person"? I cannot do it myself, as the page is locked for moving. Alternatively, can you unprotect the page in such a way that I can do the moving myself? Thanks! (I am not an admin.) --Dan Polansky 12:07, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
I am not sure why this request was directed at me instead of on the talk page. I don't see why this shouldn't be merely semi-protected, so I will make that change. As far as the move, I am not convinced that the move is warranted. There should almost certainly be two (or more) pages, one for words related to homosexual, one for words related to homosexual person, one for male homosexuals etc.
Thank you for making the page merely semi-protected. An explanation for the move: Once I move WS:homosexual to "WS:homosexual person", I can move WS:gay to WS:homosexual and thus turn WS:homosexual into an adjective-only page.
Why I have asked you: The request could have been directed at any admin; I had to choose an admin by a fairly arbitrary method. I could have made a random list of admins and then roll the die, but given the page was originally protected by you back on 9 September 2006 (), it seemed natural to ask you. Posting a request on the talk page of a Wikisaurus entry is an almost guaranteed way to have it ignored. Thanks again.
You mentioned before that you're able to whip up a page to find phrasal verbs. Could you do that for me, generate a page of all multiword entries in Category:English verbs which aren't in Category:Englihs phrasal verbs?
Ah yes, I had forgotten. I downloaded the categories dump and I will look at that tomorrow.
Thanks a lot for running this. It's already very useful. The only thing is, there are more templates I use that I didn't mention. The list should be as follows:
Do you object to my keeping this? (Not marking it "RFV passed", per se, since no one added valid citations, but not deleting it, either, since decent evidence was presented, and the main problem seems to be a shortage of Swahili-speaking citers.)
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for your reply.
Here's what I'm asking for.
First of all, the pairs with nuqta (a dot underneath) and without it should be searchable the same way Roman letters with diacritics and without are searchable.
The letters are not identical but So that if a user typed खून, ख़ून would also be listed.
- Words containing diacritics ॉ (candra), ् (virama) should be equal to those without them: चॉकलेट / चाकलेट, सन् / सन. Similar to the way English words entries with a space are equal to those having a hyphen (-) between them.
- Different forms of alif: ا, أ, إ, ﺁ and ٱ should be searchable together, e.g. أمس and امس, etc.
- Words containing any of these diacritics could be searchable as if they don't have them and the other way around:
Is it possible? Anatoli 12:51, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

More diacritics for Arabic:

Tim Starling added a bug for this, and I will add all of the characters you have listed above to the bug. I told him that we wanted this behavior in AutoComplete (in the search fields) as well as included in the DidYouMean extension which suggests alternative results when your search doesn't lead to an existing page, is there anywhere else this should be enabled?
Yes, it's what you're asking. The treatment for alternative letters should be like for Roman words conaining any of Appendix:Variations_of_"a" or others, so when you type etre, you can see être in the search box. Anatoli 19:21, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, I tested various Arabic alifs, they seem to work, no luck with Hindi variants, though. Anatoli 21:41, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Persian often uses a zero-width nonjoiner (& # x200C;) as in ویکیپدیا. People who don’t know how to access it tend to substitute a space: ویکی پدیا. It’s a misspelling, but lots of people can’t help it.
In languages like Khmer and Thai that do not use word spaces, there is often a zero-width space (& # x200B;) as in តើអ្នកនិយាយភាសាអង់គ្លេសទេ. More often than not, it is simply left out (តើអ្នកនិយាយភាសាអង់គ្លេសទេ). Both spellings are correct.
Do you know how Mediawiki currently handles this? We obviously don't want all spaces to be normalized to that character, and we don't want that character to be normalized to a space either (or terrible matches would be made).
Sorry, yeah, the bug is here if you want to check it out or add to it, there have been no updates from developers on the bug at this point. It will probably take a while, they are busy people.
How are these used? Are these parts of the stage or areas next to the stage or either? If an area of the stage, is it relative to the center or relative to each individual actor or either depending on context? I ask because various dictionary definitions allow for these possibilities.
I didn't add the definitions, only the glosses, but to my understanding both are valid uses. The very popular phrase from American cartoons "exit, stage left" is the area offstage to the left from the performers perspective. When a performer moves to the left or right on the stage they are also moving "stage left" or "stage right", compare to "upstage" and "downstage". As for relativity, I think it is relative to the performers previous position unless otherwise stated, similar to cardinal directions. I suppose it would be possible to "move stage left of Tim" or similar, but I have no knowledge of that use.
Thank you for your kindness with your welcome and correcction of my mistake (so sorry). I am Spanish speaker, and only dare to make some translations of some terms in senses I seen used in texts and not seen so in dictionarys (as my humble opinion). Feel free to correct any thing you found, and, please, show it to me to better do my task
