The contributors to Wiktionary have already done an outstanding job with the Italian entries. I, therefore, find myself able to commit my time to something that I find more interesting: phonology. I enjoy adding IPA or SAMPA pronunciation transcriptions to entries that don't already have them. Despite its relatively predictable grapheme to phoneme correspondence, Italian orthography features several pitfalls for native English speakers, i.e. "ch" is /k/ and not /tʃ/. As this dictionary's target audience is English speakers, I find it useful to add both broad and narrow transcriptions when transcribing foreign languages like Italian, so that the user may choose whichever transcription they understand best.
I am also interested in the Sicilian language and its phonology, since I can speak it much better than I can Neapolitan. If anyone has any suggestions on how I can more effectively contribute to Sicilian, feel free to let me know! I have also been looking for good sources of information on Sicilian phonology.
