Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page 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.
  • 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 do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

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.

Do you happen to know what the plural of the English noun sense of this word is? --Yair rand 23:50, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Also, do you know whether the adjective sense is comparable? (i.e. can you say something is "more malglico", "most malglico"?) --Yair rand 23:53, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
As I thought about your question on its noun form, I'm wondering if it can be a noun in English. I don't think it can. "That sentence is a malglico" isn't grammatically correct. Regardless, as far as I know, Lojbanic words in English don't have a plural form (one cmavo, two cmavo, three cmavo). I do believe it could be comparable as an adjective, though. If you can, get the opinion of one of the other Lojbanist users. I've only been at the language for a month or so. Chrishy 23:58, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
