Who even am I?[edit]

G'day mate! My real name is Justin King, but you can call me AmazingJus (the bonzer one ay). I'm an Aussie who likes phonology and IPA. EDM and typography are also my knacks for me.

This user is currently working on
English IPA transcriptions, EDM-related terms, fixing noticeable formatting and grammatical areas.

I intend not to make mass fixes in other languages themselves, but trivial ones which are more noticeable.

Language skills[edit]

  • English—my native language. Kinda a mixture between General and broad Australian English.
  • French—I'm good at translating and reading text; my pronunciation is at least intelligible (according to my French friends), but my conversation skills are a level 1.
  • German—Similar to French, but my conversation skills are better than reading & translating.
  • Korean—I've been to Korea several times, have several friends who try to teach Korean to me. I'm find it quite fun to do, yet I couldn't take it that seriously to get a 3 or a 4.
  • Chinese—Best at Mandarin. Cantonese is so-so. I have perfect pitch so just listening to how the tones are sounded by native speakers, and I'm fine. Main problem is reading the Hànzì (漢字). More about it in the next section. ↓
  • Russian—I was always fascinated by this sophisticated language spoken by at least 150,000,000 native speakers worldwide. I've used Duolingo to study, but eventually gave up due to its sheer complexity.
  • Spanish—It's always a very fun language to learn. A lot of people learn this language, regardless of accent or dialect.
  • Czech—Another good language worth learning. Beware of strč prst skrz krk!
  • Arabic—Read about the cool things that were present in Arabic (i.e. the morphological system, their distinct dialects (more like varieties) and their phonology that is so fun to pronounce).
  • Japanese—Studied with Pimsleur, but that's it. I can only say a few phrases.


Usually I bump into these mistakes and I try my best to fix 'em!

  • Not formatting the etymologies properly, i.e. not using {{der}}, {{inh}} or {{bor}} templates. Check these revisions for example. The revision on the right is the unformatted one...
  • When header links do not use the templates {{l}} or {{m}}.
  • Languages that especially use different scripts not using {{lang}}.
  • When declensions of word don't use something like {{inflection of}}, {{alternative spelling of}} or {{form of}}
  • Noticeable grammatical errors in English, and if a linguistic conflict or ambiguity occurs I will consult with native speakers.
