ELE Amendment 2: periods only where needed[edit]

  • Voting on:
    That, in the sentence in the "Definitions" section of Wiktionary:Entry layout explained that currently reads:

    Each definition may be treated as a sentence: beginning with a capital letter and ending with a full stop.

    the portion currently following the word "may" ("be...stop") be replaced with the following text:

    begin with a capital letter. Because most definitions are not sentences, they should not end with a full stop unless this is necessary. For example, if a definition is followed by a short qualification, such as "Used mostly in the plural", then both the definition and the subsequent qualification should end with a full stop.

    Thus, absent any other modifications, the revised passage would read as follows, up to the end of the paragraph:

    Each definition may begin with a capital letter. Because most definitions are not sentences, they should not end with a full stop unless this is necessary. For example, if a definition is followed by a short qualification, such as "Used mostly in the plural", then both the definition and the subsequent qualification should end with a full stop. The key terms of a definition should be wikified.
