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! --Vahag 18:51, 6 September 2010 (UTC)


Hi there. I think that this can simply mean mallet - the wooden implement used in carpentry etc. SemperBlotto (talk) 17:12, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

  • OK. changed definition to just "mallet", and moved "mazza da croquet" into derived terms section.

iemand in de rug te steken[edit]

Might this not deserve its own entry, if it refers to the idiomatic sense (to betray). Mglovesfun (talk) 12:14, 20 February 2013 (UTC)


nl:volproppen seems to suggest another definition, to make very full (transitive) rather than to be very full (intransitive). Mglovesfun (talk) 18:09, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Indeed that was not the best wording in the definition. Hope it's better now. Anceurs (talk) 18:13, 24 March 2013 (UTC)


When creating Dutch entries, could you please add the Dutch templates like {{nl-verb}} and {{nl-conj-wk}} to the entry? Every Dutch entry should have those. Thank you. —CodeCat 21:56, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Sure thing. By the way: is there somewhere a complete list of Dutch wiktionary templates? Anceurs (talk) 23:32, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Some things to watch out for[edit]

There are a few things that I would like to note about your recent contributions.

  • spoog: Verb forms should not use {{nl-verb}}, that is only for lemmas (infinitives). You can use {{head|nl|verb form}} instead, which is what all other Dutch verb forms also use. It's also better to use standard templates to generate the definition if possible, like I have done now.
  • When adding etymologies, please note the use of {{prefix}} and {{suffix}} as well. These templates should be used instead of {{compound}} when the word has been formed with a prefix or a suffix. They also add the entry to a different category, which keeps track of all words with that prefix/suffix.
  • When creating entries for Dutch verbs, please add the appropriate inflection table as well. If you don't know how to add it, add this instead: {{rfinfl|nl|verb}} so that the entry can be found and fixed by someone else later.
  • If you create a new Dutch verb entry, or you see a verb entry where some of the forms in the table do not have an entry yet (the links are black instead of blue), please add the verb to User:MewBot/feedme. That list is tracked by a bot which automatically creates all the entries.
  • The same two points apply to adjectives as well, using the {{nl-decl-adj}} template. You don't need to create all the inflected forms yourself (like toornige), it's easier to let the bot do it.

Cool, thanks for fixing those so far. Will look out for points above. BTW, talking about proper templates - it looks like Template:nl-pron does not exist. Anceurs (talk) 12:29, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

MewBot doesn't support nouns[edit]

But there is a gadget called accelerated entry creator that you can enable in your preferences. It will make the links to the noun forms green, and when you click on them you get a ready-made entry. —CodeCat 14:15, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
