Introduction[edit]

Wikipedia has an article on:

Wikipedia

The aim of this page is to explain the norms used in Esperanto entries. It is intented to complement, not supersede, WT:CFI and WT:ELE.

Affixes and Suffixes[edit]

If an affix is always followed by the same part-of-speech suffix, then the affix together with the suffix which always follows it should be considered as a single suffix for purposes of listing derived terms. For example: -igi and -iĝi.

If an affix can be followed by different part-of-speech suffixes, then the derived terms should be listed under the affix, and there could be a usage note saying that the affix does not modify the part of speech of a word.

Corpus[edit]

Project Gutenberg’s Esperanto texts have been chopped, and listed by word frequently (number of texts the word appears in) at User:Prosfilaes/Esperanto corpus. http://tekstaro.com/ is also available as a searchable corpus of Esperanto.

External links[edit]

Reta Vortaro is a contributive project where a moderator examines the contributions before publishing them. Articles are written in XML format and are based on a specific DTD. One can link from any Wikimedia project to ReVo using the code [[ReVo:radik]] or [[ReVo:radik|radiko]] where radik is the word root or base part of the word (i.e., without its grammatical part-of-speech ending) to which one wants to link. It will result in: radiko. Some more examples: ar, ekvaci, nombr, difin
