Salve Dignissime! I'm glad to see that you're interested in working on Igbo here. I have a few important notes:

  • Adding the {{head}} template is how the entry gets placed in the correct category. It goes right under the part of speech header. For an example, see what I did at ọcha.
  • If you look at ọcha, you'll also see that I added the form with low tones marked with ̀. You should always give the tones; if you don't know them, I can share a dictionary which lists them.
  • Please add verbs with just the stem, leaving off the infinitive marker, so nye instead of inye.
  • Finally, the words on Wiktionary have to have real use or for languages like Igbo with less documentation, be found in dictionaries. I've deleted onyonyo okpụkpụ because I couldn't find anything when I googled it.

Please tell me if you have any questions, or need any Igbo resources, and thank you for your help! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:14, 10 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks! For tones I could look in the 'Dictionary of Onicha Igbo', if you have other resources I'd gladly take them Dignissimus (talk) 09:06, 11 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If you send me an email, I can send you some PDFs, including Echeruo's dictionary. It has some flaws with how it presents dialectal forms (at Wiktionary, we prefer to choose a single form and then mark the dialectal versions of it, like what you see at mmiri). But if you consult it with the Onitsha dialect dictionary, it should serve you pretty well. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:51, 11 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
