Registered Wiktionary editor since March 11, 2007.
I am a retired university professor in Ontario, Canada. In Wiktionary I have added and edited philosophical terms and Canadianisms, and enjoy contributing idioms. I also like to root about at random. I make a special effort to add literary and scholarly quotations to entries, as well as verified references.
