This isn't a place to list all words that contain the word element "sphere"; the derived terms should have originated in English from their parts, and not have been assembled in another language. Many of the terms you added were borrowed from Latin or Greek words, and only coincidentally end in "-sphere" because of the origin from the other language. --EncycloPetey 04:19, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

I will try to find more information about Wikitionary Goal, because Wikipedia is starting to have more prefix and suffix article like (e.g. -graphy, -nomics and -onym.) These information seems pretty weird, since they should transfer to Wikitionary than staying in Wikipedia. These are information (or somewhat of a documentations), they aren't really articles.

Wikitionary shouldn't be just a technical linguistics dictionary. It should cover things like how words are built using diagrams, template...etc. (e.g. portmanetau, loanwords...etc.) For instance, (-sphere, also means "cycle of ...", "layers of..." in the field of science).

removing links[edit]

Please do not de-link words in lists of related or derived terms. You have been blocked before for removing this sort of utility from pages. You have proceded to do it again, so you have been blocked again. --EncycloPetey 03:59, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

You are not supposed to be violating WP:RED in the first place, since they have no potential of being developed. -- 05:48, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

This is Wiktionary, not Wikipedia. They don't follow the same policies... the words you removed here are as relevant as the ones you left. No potential for being developed? You removed anthropogenesis which now has its own entry. -- De novo 06:00, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
