Hello. ignominous should be ignominious, but this is a really common misspelling so I've added an entry for it. Equinox 23:26, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey there[edit]

For translation tables, you want to use {{trans-top}}, {{trans-mid}} and {{trans-bottom}} :) — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 14:25, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

IPA transcriptions[edit]

IPA does not indicate primary stress with an apostrophe. There is a separate character ˈ that is used for this. --EncycloPetey 20:19, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Also, the sound /e/ is rare in English (outside of Australia). It normally occurs only in the diphthong /eɪ/. --EncycloPetey 20:21, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

In looking over the English pronunciations you've added in the past few days, each one I've looked at contains at least one significant error. You should probably learn a little more about IPA transcription of English before using it in entries. --EncycloPetey 20:36, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Ok, my English dictionary seems to use a different pronunciation system. --A333 20:38, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Many dictionaries use a modified form of IPA to make printing easier. Different dictionaries make these modifications in different ways. On Wiktionary, where we are dealing in many languages, we are using IPA more as it was originally designed. We can't modify the meaning of the symbols, because we aren't using just one language. --EncycloPetey 20:40, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

{{etycomp}}[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your edits... but please don't use that template, it sucks. Use {{compound}}, {{prefix}}, or {{suffix}} instead. Thanks. --Jyril 07:20, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Remember, adjectives don't have -en in comitative plural, so please leave it empty, for example {{fi-decl-nalle|beig|||ä|}}. --Jyril 15:47, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
