Talk:current events

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

I think this page is in the wrong place. First of all, I'm not sure there's a real need for it in the first place. If words have entered the language, we put them in. Simple as that. But if there is a need for a list of recent words, I think it should be in the Wiktionary: namespace, along with all the other index pages. The "current events" page should just contain the definition of "current events". -- Ortonmc 04:36, 8 Feb 2004 (UTC)

I tend to agree. Hippietrail 07:00, 8 Feb 2004 (UTC)
It should definately be in the Wiktionary namespace, however, while translating messages for wiktionary:nl I couldn't find the nessecary message to do so (perhaps MediaWiki:Newslink or so?) Bemoeial 00:02, 18 Jun 2004 (UTC)
In any case, this is not a list of words that have recently entered dictionaries, as the tagline says, as many of these are much too recent to have entered all but the most newly-minted print dictionaries. Perhaps a better tagline would be "...that are entering the language".
I've made this change. — Paul G 13:30, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)

I was going to move the contents of this page to "Wiktionary:Neologisms" but that page already exists. Where else might they go? — Paul G 08:42, 19 Jul 2004 (UTC)

I like this page as I am always interested in new words and like to be able to get to this page easily. It should stay where it is.

Change into normal article[edit]

As of today this was the article on RfD which has been there the longest. I had hoped that someone would come along and set up and maintain something for "our" current events, perhaps at Wiktionary:Current events, but it didn't happen. So I've change the contents into a normal article about the phrase "current events". Eclecticology 07:03, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

There is a page Wiktionary:Announcements for that. --Dangherous 23:01, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
