ELE Amendment 3: distinction between equivalences and definitions[edit]

  • Voting on:

  • That a new sentence be added immediately before the sentence in the "Definitions" section of Wiktionary:Entry layout explained that currently reads:

    The key terms of a definition should be wikified.

  • That this new sentence read as follows:

    However, there is one exception to these principles: in the case of a definition that consists solely of a term that meets the criteria for inclusion, such as a synonym or translation, or a list of such terms, the definition should not be capitalized, and should not end with a full stop.


(end of vote)

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

Each definition may be treated as a sentence: beginning with a capital letter and ending with a full stop. However, there is one exception to these principles: in the case of a definition that consists solely of a term that meets the criteria for inclusion, such as a synonym or translation, or a list of such terms, the definition should not be capitalized, and should not end with a full stop. The key terms of a definition should be wikified.

Thus for example:

# [[happy]]; [[delighted]]; [[thrilled]]
# In a state of religious [[ecstasy]].
# {{slang}} [[high]]
