Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

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! Wyang (talk) 05:13, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Penang Hokkien for 普通話[edit]

I got 華語 from here. You changed it to 唐人語, but shouldn't it be 唐人話 instead? — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 19:44, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Alternative forms[edit]

Hi, I'm just wondering if you have any sources/quotations for the alt forms you've added, like 早晨 for 早起, 發奮 for 拍拚 or 逃落 for 佗落. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 21:24, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

@Justinrleung: 早晨&發奮 is from 傳道法師 but I can't recall where since I can't find the youtube link anymore (I will find and post to you again). 逃落 is from 陳世明 —This unsigned comment was added by Caferatte89 (talkcontribs) at 12:49, 29 April 2019 (UTC).
I see. Sorry for the late reply. Have you found the links to 傳道法師? 早晨 and 發奮 look like Mandarin; were they just used in the subtitles? I've watched a few videos from 陳世明 - he doesn't look like a reliable source for so-called 本字. It's probably best to refrain from adding alternative forms from him unless you find it actually used somewhere. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 05:49, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
