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!

It seems we've been playing some entry tag :). It's always good to see another person with an interest in Greek roots. A couple of words about that (which you may or may not have already picked up), we don't create entries for Romanizations (with a few notable exceptions, such as the Chinese languages and Japanese), and thus don't create links to them. Also, keep in mind that on Wiktionary "Greek" means modern Greek, and Ancient Greek (from which many English words come from) must be specified as such. Any other questions or comments, feel more than free to drop me a line. Thanks. Atelaes 22:44, 16 May 2007 (UTC)


The nicer method is to use {{plural of|[[single]]|lang=Italian}} . You get the category for free. SemperBlotto 13:36, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

And see valigia for how to use the {{it-noun}} template (also gives you the category for free) SemperBlotto 13:39, 31 May 2007 (UTC)


These should not all sort to "Derivations" but alphabetically by langauge or family with ISO prefix. --EncycloPetey 20:29, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Language names in translation tables[edit]

Hi there. Our convention is to use actual language names, not two-character templates. SemperBlotto 08:09, 1 February 2011 (UTC)


Let me explain. I removed the derived terms because they are not directly derived from super. They are derived from super- or possibly from non-English words. (I could be wrong about specific cases, but that can only be established by doing the research.) I did some work on superfine to support the evolution of the sense to support super#Etymology 1, but I relied on [1], a usually reliable source. It would be nice to show that "super" was used by itself to mean "superfine" applied to goods and that "superfine" was used of, say, situations or outcomes or people.
