twenty hundred[edit]

Hi. "2000" is not useful. The time is written in the definition already, "20:00". Equinox 02:19, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Letter Names[edit]

Please use the actual name of the letters as written in the {{Latn-def}} template. A may be pronounced as if it were written "ay", but this is a written dictionary- the written name is "a". When you click on the link that's produced by your edit, it doesn't show a definition saying that's the name of the letter in English. Also, look at Category:en:Latin letter names.

In case you're thinking of adding such a definition, consider this link: [1]]. Before you change the spelling of letter names, look them up on Wikipedia or other references, and check to see what the names used by Unicode are. There are cases like aitch where the written name and the name as pronounced are the same.

It's also possible that "ay" might be considered an alternate spelling of the letter, but you would want to add it as an alternate-name parameter (see the documentation at the {{Latn-def}} template for details on how), and it could still be reverted if no one uses it that way (see WT:CFI for the requirements for documenting that a term is used (or attested).

I apologize for the wordy explanation, but since you're not making these edits out of any intent to vandalize, I feel I owe you at least this much. Chuck Entz (talk) 00:33, 21 July 2012 (UTC)



Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary! We notice that you're making changes anonymously. Although this is perfectly all right, we'd like to encourage you to take the time to create an account and sign in to it when editing – it's free and easy. A number of good reasons to do so are listed at Wiktionary:Why create an account?.

Please note that we are not Wikipedia. If you have edited there, it won't be very difficult for you to find your way here, but there are a number of differences. For example, Wiktionary is case-sensitive: Kind (German) is not the same as kind (English, Danish, Dutch etc.) Also note that Wiktionary never uses parenthetic disambiguation, so where Wikipedia might have separate articles on Mercury (planet), Mercury (element), and Mercury (mythology), Wiktionary will only have one entry on Mercury which addresses proper noun uses, and an entry on mercury which addresses regular noun uses.

Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Questionable entries will be listed for verification, and, if they fail that process, will be deleted. Also, keep in mind our copyright policies: don't copy material from copyrighted sources here. Such additions will be deleted on sight. Submissions from IP addresses unfortunately are looked at more closely, so please take a minute to create an account.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question in the appropriate discussion room or ask me on my talk page.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary! --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:57, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

double U[edit]

If the entry is double U, it's for that term, and not for double u. The casing matters. Equinox 21:57, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
