Welcome!

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 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! --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 20:06, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Haha thanks, although this seems a little silly, as I'm hardly a newcomer --Coreydragon (talk) 20:18, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

OE verbs[edit]

We took out the conjugation information on the headword lines when we added conjugation tables below. So, please don't re-add them. Ƿidsiþ 06:26, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Babel[edit]

Hello, and thanks for contributing! Please consider adding a BabelBox to your userpage so we know what languages you're familiar with. Thanks --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:44, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

blond[edit]

Please note three things. Two of them you can see in the edit I made to the French section after you: (1) the {{informal}} needs |lang=fr to be listed as French rather than English, and (2) you should always link words in the translation. The third thing is a little more subtle: when you define French blond as blond, you need to link to the English section. You can do this with: [[#English|blond]] when you're on the same page. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:28, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Header levels (alum).[edit]

When you nest a pronunciation section inside a numbered etymology section, make sure the header-levels are right:

===Etymology 1===
====Pronunciation====
====Noun====
=====Synonyms=====
====Verb====
=====Derived terms=====
===Etymology 2===
====Pronunciation====
====Noun====

Do you see what I mean?

hatan[edit]

Thank you for adding the table, but I think it is incomplete. What about the form that is ancestral to modern English hight? —CodeCat 03:00, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

That is in fact the 1st & 3rd person singular preterite form, hēt, which is also attested as hēht. Coreydragon (talk) 03:08, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

Please note that you can't just put any random language codes in {{etyl}}. Put the code of the language being derived from first, and then the one that takes it. See this change. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:35, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
