This page is for cleanup jobs. Request jobs are at Wiktionary:Things to do.

Contents

This page lists cleanup requests affecting multiple entries. These may include updating templates, categories or generic entry structure, but not specific terms, which should be tagged with {{rfc}} and put on WT:RFC. Therefore, tasks that have previously been divided across discussion and user pages are grouped together in one place where they are easier to find.

Regular tasks[edit]

Semi-regular tasks[edit]

Usually dump-analyzed:

  • /incorrect topical categorizations — For example, no French entry but 'Category:fr:Anatomy'.
  • Terms in the main lang cat — the only term that should be in the top level language category is the native language name — Updated: 02 August 2010.
  • Unhelpful abbreviations — These should use the full term.
  • Category:Limit of template reached.
  • Occasionally, people write {{w:Foobar}}, this should be {{w|Foobar}} (and can be found by searching the database for instances of {{w:).
  • Occasionally, soft hyphens sneak into the content of entries or even the pagenames; these should be removed.
  • People sometimes type {[, }] etc when they mean {{ / }}. It is useful to periodically scan dumps for instances of this. Here is some regex: ([^\[\{]\[\{[^\[\{]|[^\[\{]\{\[[^\[\{]|[^\]\}]\]\}[^\]\}]|[^\]\}]\}\][^\]\}]). Simply searching for ]} will not work, because there are many valid instances of it, e.g. {{term|foo|fooing|lang=und|[[gloss]]}}.
  • Every few months, check for instances of the common but nonstandard headers "Alternative form", "Alternative spelling" and "Alternative spellings" (which should be "Alternative forms") and "Usage note" (which should be "Usage notes"). Many other nonstandard headers exist, but none are as common as those. Also, no L1 headers should exist in the main namespace (language headers should always be L2, and all other headers should always be L3 or more).

To be monitored manually:

  • Historically, many instances of law were supposed to be {{legal}}.
  • Historically, nrm was sometimes used where {{roa-nor}} was meant.
  • Uses of the language code aaa in translations tables are often vandalism.
  • pdc (Pennsylvania High German) and pdt (Plautdietsch Low German) need to be kept separate.
  • aja (Aja/Adja of Sudan) and ajg (Adja/Aja of Benin) need to be kept separate.

Old things[edit]

December 2009[edit]

Updating Websters definitions[edit]

User:Visviva/Cobwebs contains 4 lists of entries that have markers of insufficient editorial attention since import from Websters 1913. It would be nice if, over the next 3 years, we could modernize these entries so that by the hundredth anniversary of the publication we could honor it as an inspiration for a modern dictionary instead of just relying on its often obsolete set of senses.

The markers that put the entries on the list should not be eliminated until the entry is thoroughly updated. The problems run the gamut: excessive reliance on "literary" usage examples, missing citations information, obsolete language, inclusion of related terms definitions, missing senses, superseded etymologies.

There are many basic words on the General Service List - core words - that suffer these problems. DCDuring TALK 00:28, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Someone could use Wiktionary:Abbreviated Authorities in Webster and AWB to fix ambiguous author citations. It would be even better if pedia links were included. --Bequw¢τ 05:18, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
That's treating a symptom. Should a literary style quote from 100-200 years ago (or more) appear in a long entry for a basic word (vs on Citations page). The main disease is that many of our entries from Webster's, especially the long ones, have not had enough constructive contributor attention. They are more likely to get some additional hyperspecific sense added (poker, cricket, mycology, etc) than to get updated definitions. If cleanup only treats symptoms we will succeed in masking the serious disease. Or perhaps users don't need entries for such basic words or at least don't benefit from unabridged-dictionary-style treatment of them. DCDuring TALK 22:42, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
True. BTW have all the original pages been imported? What are all the Appendix:webster 1913:* pages doing? --Bequw¢τ 03:39, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
I have assumed that the pages have been imported. The remaining terms mostly don't seem a high priority. I wouldn't add that list here until we do some of the more important or urgent work. Perhaps we need a warning to discourage uncritical importing without updating the wording and checking for obsolescence. DCDuring TALK 11:34, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Acronyms classed abbreviations[edit]

Category:English abbreviations includes many erroneous entries (mostly the full-cap ones). Sometimes the mistake is that someone used "abbreviation" in a broad sense of the word and the more correct acronym or initialism should be used here. If you are not sure if it's an acronym or initialism, put as acronym but leave a {{rfap}}. Another mistake is that geographic codes for countries and provinces/states should be made Translingual symbols. --Bequw¢τ 00:27, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Audio files[edit]

These need fixing to look tidy, i.e. any text on the same line as {{audio}} should be removed (or put in as parameter {{{2}}}). Some templates are missing {{{2}}} entirely. A few things here shouldn't be, please remove anything once it has been dealt with. Conrad.Irwin 23:30, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Ick! Some of those don't even specify the language in the filename. --EncycloPetey 16:32, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

July 2010[edit]

Sense numbers[edit]

English entries which have (#) (not in TTBC tables). Some false positives, looks to be mainly what we're looking for though. Nadando 19:52, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

One should be careful when converting a number to a gloss that the order of definitions hasn't changed since the number was added.​—msh210 (talk) 20:08, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Right. The best way to fix these is to look through the history at what the senses were like when the translation was first added. Nadando 20:11, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

stray references[edit]

A list of pages that has <references/> not in a Usage notes or References header. This is OK sometimes, but usually they just lack the correct header. --Bequw τ 20:54, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

The rest rely on an answer to the question at Wiktionary talk:Quotations#Format of notes in quotations. --Bequw τ 05:34, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

User:Robert Ullmann/Pronunciation exceptions/remains[edit]

A large list of mistakes and errors in pronunciation sections. Should be pretty straightforward. -- Prince Kassad 21:19, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

January 2011[edit]

Misemboldened material in quotes and usage examples[edit]

How hard would it be to create a clean-up list of instances of emboldened text in quotes and usage examples that are not identical to the headword, especially in the entry, but also on any citations page? Is this a task for Autoformat? DCDuring TALK 17:28, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Not all bold text different form the headword is incorrectly bold. E.g., [[say]] has boldface said and says in quotes/usexes, and foreign words have boldface transliterations and translations.​—msh210 (talk) 17:34, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
It would be lovely if the matching was against any inflected form as well.
How about bold text with a space when the headword is a single word? That would capture cases where cites were copied from an MWE to one or more component words without adjustment. DCDuring TALK 18:28, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
What's an MWE? (Not seeing it at [[MWE]] (redlink), [[Appendix:Glossary]], or [[Wiktionary:Glossary]].) In any event, I'm sure there are languages where a cited term can have a space even if citing a word without a space. (Perhaps "auf-" verbs in German, cited as ".. auf"?) I seem to recall seeing even some English entries that do this: cite a space-including form like dump truck for dumptruck. (We don't like those at RFV, but they're useful to show early use, especially where the version in the cite is a form-of entry.)​—msh210 (talk) 19:26, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Multi-word entry. I picked it up from BP or RfD. It doesn't prejudice the case as to idiomaticity.
As a manual cleanup item we should be able to catch those. It is English entries that have the most usage examples and citations that might need the clean up. I don't really understand why we have separate entries (vs, say, redirects) for alternative forms, but conflate them all in entry-page citations. If we want to conflate them somewhere, why not in citation space with transclusion or redirection? We have a problem with the multiple purposes of citations: usage example for a sense, attestation of form, history of lemma. Citations that, say, show a headword to be an adjective are not the best for sense usage or history of lemma. DCDuring TALK 20:36, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, if it's to be done manually, okay. The false negatives (positives? I mean badly bold entries) shouldn't overwhelm the true ones.​—msh210 (talk) 20:48, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
When I mentioned AF I was thinking of the problem-detection-and-marking function it or its successors have. DCDuring TALK 23:05, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Not too many in Latin script: /bolded spaces in single-word entries. --Bequw τ 02:58, 19 January 2011 (UTC) (Slightly edited by msh210 18:59, 19 January 2011 (UTC).)
I don't see any instance of blanks in emboldened text in the first few I looked at. Of course, I am a little suspicious that they are all one-character entries. Is there a problem in the selection logic? DCDuring TALK 12:45, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Should be fixed. I also shows now the matches so that you don't have to guess as much. --Bequw τ 16:44, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. The 5000+ entries fits my expectations better. Showing the matches is a help. DCDuring TALK 17:25, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
I just went through five dozen or so Hebrew entries and discovered that virtually all of them have the "error" in a translation and were actually fine. Any way you can re-run the script, skipping boldfacing in #*:: and #::, please? (Or maybe there's a better way to omit translations.)​—msh210 (talk) 18:06, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Much less serious, because visible from the page, are the instances of "more" and "most" in the inflection line, and dates in quotes. I am only going for what are probably English entries because the list doesn't seem to have a very high yield of real problems for non-English because of what msh210 describes. DCDuring TALK 18:50, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
"More"/"most" is good to list: the inflection^Wheadword line needs a template then. No?​—msh210 (talk) 18:56, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
The instances I saw were within templates. DCDuring TALK 01:56, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Reran not matching those line prefixes (or ##:: or ##*::). Ones already removed were kept out. --Bequw τ 01:37, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

usexes with (almost) every word a link[edit]

There are a bunch of entries with every word in the usexes a link. Any way a bot or AWB can delinkify these?​—msh210 (talk) 18:59, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Probably but I don't know what that way is. A chunk of these are 123abc (talkcontribs) entries where he used to link every single word. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:55, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Generally we don't want links within the usex at all, right? It wouldn't be too hard for AWB or PWB to remove all links within all usexes. Also I am not volunteering but I am curious if there are instances where links in usex are encouraged. - TheDaveRoss 04:30, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Not remove all: remove all except those that link to PAGENAME, which convert to boldfacing. (And in all cases make sure the display is the piped display if any.) I can't think of any exceptions, not that that means there aren't any.​—msh210 (talk) 04:39, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
But really those which refer to pagename should be converted to ''' shouldn't they? - TheDaveRoss 15:31, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I said: "remove [=only remove, without converting to anything] all except those that link to PAGENAME, which [=object] convert [=imperative] to boldfacing". Sorry for being unclear.​—msh210 (talk) 22:38, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting[edit]

Found this by chance. Some of the entries tagged are in the main namespace. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:54, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

/phrases not linked to from components[edit]

​—msh210 (talk) 07:04, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

User:Prince Kassad/en-infl[edit]

These are English entries that use {{infl}} in one way or another. Many of these have already been fixed by bot; a lot of the others can be manually changed to en-noun, en-verb, en-adj, en-adv. -- Prince Kassad 21:16, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Why change them?​—msh210 (talk) 16:18, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
It's inconsistent and bad. {{infl|en|noun}} does not tell a reader whether the noun is countable or not, {{infl|en|verb}} does not tell a reader how to conjugate the verb, {{infl|en|adjective}} does not tell a reader whether the adjective can be compared or not. -- Prince Kassad 16:30, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
I see no reason to replace {{infl}} in certain cases; en-noun and en-adj both support {{en-noun|?}}, {{en-adj|?}} to display no inflections when inflection is uncertain; I prefer no inflection to an uncertain one, which jas in he pat led to English entries like chivalrys. {{en-verb}} has no such parameters; for long verbal phrases like meet one's maker and buy the farm it's pretty common to avoid en-verb and voluntarily use {{infl|en|verb}} to avoid long, unhelpful inflection lines. It's easier than I realized to add an ? parameter to templates. --Mglovesfun (talk) 16:36, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

March 2011[edit]

User:Yair rand/uncategorized language sections[edit]

Language sections needing categories. --Yair rand (talk) 21:56, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Todo/anomalous section0 content[edit]

This lists content in the page header (section 0) that should be moved into the appropriate language entry. I've omitted RHS content in the header of pages with just a single entry, as there's no ambiguity and with the ToC visible it might be preferrable to have this content in the blank space next to the ToC rather than down below (though I'm not sure about this). --Bequw τ 18:32, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Category:Pronunciation templates without a pronunciation[edit]

I created this to find all uses of {{IPA}}, {{X-SAMPA}} and {{enPR}} where no first parameter is given. Many of these are simple typos and can be fixed in a few seconds, which is nice. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:34, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Template:None[edit]

List of all the templates that transclude this. In terms of script subtemplates, it should be replaced with the real script wherever possible. I think some of these transclusions are just uses of {{term}} with no language parameter, this isn't a problem. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:30, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

July 2012[edit]

Category:en:Zoology[edit]

This shouldn't contain names of animals, as animal names aren't limited to zoology. Names of animals should be in more specific categories, such as Category:en:Animals. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:38, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

The problem with this as a cleanup list is that too many of the items that are in the category are supposed to be in the category. I sorted out most of the capitalized terms, all those I was sure belonged in Translingual. I may try with those with Latinate endings, in search of species epithets that should be Latin. DCDuring TALK 17:59, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
Or Translingual, there's no consensus on this, apart from in your head, but I for one don't care enough to take any action on the matter, and based on observation, nor does anyone else. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:35, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
No one else active seems to care about any of these, except in principle, and not so much that either. Someone can mass-change the Latin stuff if ever a consensus emerges in favor of making New Latin a dialect of Translingual. I mark the senses of the New-Latin-coined Latin terms with {{New Latin}} and try to define the sense using {{n-g}} and the word epithet, so it should be easy enough to identify them. At the moment they might be in English, Translingual (not so many now), or Latin, but most likely they are redlinks, yet to be defined, at least in the form used in species names. Maybe the forms should be defined as inflected forms of unattested New Latin lemmas. DCDuring TALK 22:17, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

/Weird translations templates[edit]

The purpose of this list is: {{t}} and its ilk have recently been modified to always treat the third unnamed parameter as a template-name (whereas formerly it only did so if the third unnamed parameter was a recognized gender template, such as m or f). In many cases, the third unnamed parameter is actually something totally different.

Some of the items on this list are actually O.K., but most of them are now broken. Feel free to just remove the ones that aren't a problem.

Category:en:Mineralogy[edit]

Most of the entries in this category are simply minerals and belong in Category:en:Minerals. Ultimateria (talk) 04:39, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

This doesn't seem worth doing without resolving whether visible tags should be used for topics, rather than for usage context. At least some resolutions of this would involve replacing the "context" label with a hard category in some cases where the term has entered broader use than "mineralogy" indicates. DCDuring TALK 16:38, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

/Former name of[edit]

Most entries which contain the phrase "former name of foo" should be changed to use {{obsolete}}, {{historical}} and {{qualifier}} and/or {{defdate}} ([1], [2]). "Stalingrad" isn't the word for "a former name of Volgograd", it is a former name of Volgograd.

/Representative entries[edit]

Quoting from the sub-page:

In April 2011, we voted to "[d]eprecat[e] the practice, rule or guideline that allows representative entries to be placed at the start of the list of members of categories" by using sort-keys that start with an asterisk or a space (see Wiktionary:Votes/2011-04/Representative entries). However, there does not seem to have been any drive to fix existing such entries, and there remain a few thousand of them.

The below 2,671 entries were found by examining the last database dump (31 December 2012), scanning page-text for the Perl regex \[\[ *Category *:[^\]\[\|]+\|[ *] (meaning an explicit in-entry category-link where the first character after the pipe is an asterisk or a space).

Does anyone object to my fixing (many/most of) these with a bot?

English noun inflection-line vs sense-line countability mismatch[edit]

Many English noun sections have both countable and uncountable senses, but do not show that on the inflection line. That should not be. There are also other types of mismatches possible. Unfortunately, I don't think this can be rectified by a bot because our labeling of senses as countable or uncountable is not close to complete or consistent. OTOH, perhaps a portion of the job could be done by bot. I just can't see it at the moment. DCDuring TALK 13:30, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Todo/Single-line quotes[edit]

Most of these pages include a single-line quote where the the bibliographic information and the quoted material are the on the same line (when they should be separate). Let me know if there's an easy way to get rid of more false positives. The multi-line regexp that I used was: ^#[^\n\r]+'''[0-9]+[^\n\r]{15,}—. --Bequw τ 14:07, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

AutoFormat and its successor, KassadBot, unlink these like so, but it seems they only edit entries which show up in recent changes. Here is a list of 2435 entries with linked language names in trans tables which a bot could make a pass through. - -sche (discuss) 09:23, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

/Mandarin translation not nested under Chinese[edit]

These are Mandarin translations not nested under the Chinese section. They probably have to be cleaned up manually. Matthias Buchmeier (talk) 18:17, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

/Last line in trans table could benefit from xte[edit]

The last line of one of the translations tables or checktrans tables in each of these 1525 entries ends in ]] and could benefit from being adapted to use {{t}}, e.g. via the xte gadget. (More adept searching could catch instances where other lines would benefit from xte, but this is a decent start.) - -sche (discuss) 20:18, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
