Editing the "part of speech" paragraph in ELE[edit]

  • Voting on:
    Editing one paragraph of WT:ELE#The essentials.
    • Current text:
      2. Part of Speech may be a misnomer, but it seemed to make sense when it was first chosen. It is the key descriptor for the lexical function of the term in question (such as 'noun', 'verb', etc). The definitions themselves come within its scope. In addition to the traditional “parts of speech” it has come to include entities that are less than words, such as initialisms and suffixes, and items that are more than words, such as idiomatic expressions, phrases and proverbs. This heading is nestable. It is most frequently in a level three heading, but may have a lower level for terms that have multiple etymologies or pronunciations.
    • Proposed text:
      2. Part of speech may be a misnomer, but it seemed to make sense when it was first chosen. Most part-of-speech headings represent the lexical function of the term, such as Noun, Verb, Adjective, or Interjection. Others, such as Symbol, Suffix, Initialism, Phrase, or Proverb, classify the various terms in Wiktionary. Each entry has one or more part of speech sections, where the definitions themselves are found. The sections are most frequently level three, but may have a lower level for terms that have multiple etymologies or pronunciations.
  • Edits:
    • Ordering the ideas: first, what is a part of speech; second, what is a part of speech section.
    • Replacing "less than words" and "more than words" by a more concise and accurate text.
    • Mentioning actual POS headers ("Proverb" instead of "proverbs", etc.)
    • Italicizing the mentioned POS headers.
    • "Part of Speech" -> "Part of speech", in the beginning. This imitates ELE section titles, such as "The essentials", instead of "The Essentials". (And "Entry layout explained", instead of "Entry Layout Explained".)
    • And some wording.
