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.

Hi, is my contribution for the Catalan word sueu (Swabian) okay with you? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 13:42, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

@Lo Ximiendo: It is right. --Vriullop (talk) 14:08, 2 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi Vriullop. Thanks for adding the Catalan entries at tisi, tísic, and tísica. Re your edit summary stating that "tísica is only a form", the entry for "phthisic, n. and adj." in the OED (3rd ed., March 2006) has "Compare Catalan tísica phthisis (1507),…"; are you sure that tísica does not exist with this meaning? — I.S.M.E.T.A. 17:48, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

@I'm so meta even this acronym: I have not found it in any dictionary of modern Catalan, nor in a medical one quite complete (including translations and search entries in English). But, you are right, it exists in the historic dictionary Alcovell-Moll as an ancient term with a citation of a work from 1492. Maybe it is more apropiate as Old Catalan (code roa-oca). I have created it at ca:tísica. --Vriullop (talk) 19:36, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
@Vriullop: Well, according to w:Old Catalan, 1492–1507 straddles the Old Catalan–Modern Catalan transition date, so it's your call; if you think tísica is best included as an Old Catalan term, then please go ahead and create the entry. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 21:31, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Checking a Catalan corpus it appears in works of 19th century and early 20th, so finally I have included it as an archaic form. --Vriullop (talk) 09:55, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 14:35, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Catalan rhymes[edit]

I've moved all the pages now, but there are probably some errors. Could you check the pages for rhymes beginning with ɛ, e, ɔ and o? I don't know much about Western Catalan/Valencian so it's likely that some of them are not correct for all varieties of Catalan. —CodeCat 19:43, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

@CodeCat: In a first review I have moved Rhymes:Catalan/ɛkte and Rhymes:Catalan/ejʃ. Tomorrow I'll look at it in more depth, but I am suprised you moved -iɫ to Rhymes:Catalan/il as well as other -ɫ. There are some dialectal variations l/ɫ at the beginning of a syllabe, but it is always ɫ at the ending.--Vriullop (talk) 21:48, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
But ɫ and l are not actually different phonemes. Turning l into ɫ doesn't make it another word. We should use only one symbol per phoneme, so either always l or always ɫ. —CodeCat 21:50, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
