Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • For inflected languages, if you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • For words in languages that don’t use Latin script but are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in the native script.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

  • we'll see and we'll see about that - surprised we don't have these common phrases ---> Tooironic (talk) 02:38, 31 January 2014 (UTC) - Also we shall see.
  • wet market - see Wikipedia page, plus we should add its antonym dry market ---> Tooironic (talk) 04:44, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
  • wheat starch
  • workshare (noun) -- appears to be a widely used term to describe European government funding arrangements where work, especially for military and space projects, are shared in some manner across national European country boundaries based on some non-market criteria of the "work" being contracted to occur, in the main, within national boundaries in some sort of share commensurate with that countries "contribution" to the particular agency or project. I don't fully understand the concept; but it appears to be widely used in various sources, especially those that describe the ESA and EU funding. It can also be seen in several Wikipedia articles, but appears to never be defined. One good reliable source to illustrate the concept is [19], but I'll add the quotation in hidden text since Aviation Week articles often quickly dissapear behind a paywall. Cheers.
