Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search


Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Again, welcome! --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 04:39, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Four hyphens between languages[edit]

Place four hyphens between entries of different languages just like I did to one of your entries. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 02:12, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

For example, have a look at नयन, where I placed the Marathi word before the Sanskrit word and placed the four hyphens between them. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 02:16, 5 April 2012 (UTC)


Hi there. It would be useful if you could add a Wiktionary:Babel box to your User page, just so other editors know what languages you're comfortable in. Thanks. Ƿidsiþ 19:38, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

template tip[edit]

Hey, I don't know if you learned from past mistakes already or not but just note that when using {{head}} you must specify to full POS like : {{head|sa|adjective}} as opposed to {{head|sa|adj}}. Thanks for your contributions. :) User: PalkiaX50 talk to meh 13:05, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Yep, I realized what I was doing. Thanks! 11achitturi (talk) 17:59, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Category:Entries which need Devanagari script[edit]

Looks like a lot of Sanskrit in etymologies. It would be great if you could go through these. Thanks! --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:42, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

I'll give it a shot.11achitturi (talk) 17:59, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks so much! --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 18:00, 31 July 2012 (UTC)


Please remember to use this feature, because it automatically categorises entries by etymology. Thanks! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:08, 24 December 2012 (UTC)


Hi. I noticed that your keyboard is not correct for Urdu. For example, you spelled this word جوكھمي (with ك (k) and ي (y)). Correct would be جوکھمی (with ک and ی). The ك (k) and ي (y) are readable by Urdus, but it is not the correct spelling. If you use Microsoft Windows, you should have the correct Urdu keyboard available in your control panel. —Stephen (Talk) 12:51, 29 April 2014 (UTC)[edit]

It should be avoided because it allows user-submitted content, and contains many made-up words and meanings (you can look up e.g. internet or America). There is a dozen or so other dictionaries to link to. --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 03:37, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
