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 explained (ELE) 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 to 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.

I would highly recommend that you read through this page as your last edit contained a flaw in it in terms of the entry layout. Thanks, Razorflame 16:29, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

I have noted the flaw and will take care for it in the future, thank you for your help! Benjitheijneb (talk) 16:31, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
Not a problem :) Razorflame 16:34, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

More replies[edit]

I've made further replies to you on my talk page. --EncycloPetey (talk) 00:49, 21 July 2013 (UTC)


Hi there. Are you sure of the inflection of reneo? I would have thought the headword and inflection would be {{la-verb|reneō|renēre|renēvī|renētum|conj=2}} and {{la-conj-2nd|ren|renēv|renēt}} SemperBlotto (talk) 20:12, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure in the slightest of the absence of an active perfect, merely an absence of attestation in immediately available texts (EDIT: specifically, in classical texts and in paradigm tables). As for the inflection, that one threw me too, but on the source I found for the paradigm, I strangely enough found that the supine form (which was present on the paradigms for this verb a few hours ago!) had vanished. I was especially confused, as a Latinist I was in personal communication with had already given me "renetus" (explicitly without any long vowels) as the perfect passive participle. EDIT: This is the same form I recall on the paradigm page. Where they had found that from, I am unsure. (PS. The "error" cited on the paradigm page was me, in hindsight, I should have phrased it as "clarification - should there be no [active] perfect form?"). Obviously, I am awaiting someone with access to a wider range of the Latin corpus to confirm that. (Naturally, my computer has decided to be lovely-jubbly and refuse to open up Perseus Digital Library's dictionary...) Benjitheijneb (talk) 20:27, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
