English loanwords[edit]

Please duplicate all of these entries at tt:täwge Bit. They speak Tatar there and can judge whether these words are acceptable, and if they will allow the words to remain there, then we will also allow them here. Otherwise, we do not believe that they are real Tatar words. —Stephen 08:47, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Clearing words[edit]

Hi there. Could you list such words for deletion please, by adding the {{rfd}} template. Cheers. SemperBlotto 13:57, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Tartar nonsense[edit]

I shall be dealing with these queries at rfv in the next week or so. Please put a clear recommendation as to whether to keep or remove on the rfv page to assist me. I have also asked Beobach to do the same. Many thanks for your help. Andrew massyn 07:11, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Ok. I will do it ASAP. Eric Utgerd 07:18, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

Tatar translation help[edit]

Hello. Could you add the Tatar entries to Appendix:Units of Time? If you can add both the Cyrillic and Latin spellings, that would be helpful. Thanks very much, --EncycloPetey 05:56, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks! --EncycloPetey 03:21, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Tatar planets[edit]

Why did you add incorrect translations for planets? "Mercury" is not a tatar name of Mercury. Same with Pluto. Same with Venera (which is exactly Chulpan). Why do you do this? --Jaroslavleff 15:49, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm doing this using modern correct translations for planets.
Citation: 8 klassik planetağa qarıy, menä alar: Merkuri, Venus, Cir, Mars, Yupiter, Saturn, Uran häm Neptun. Pluto xäzer başqa kategoriädä, ul kärlä planeta...
There is written "Venera", not "Venus"! --Jaroslavleff 17:46, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
Translation: 8 classic planets, they are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Pluto now in other category, it is dwarf planet.
Cir(Zhir) also spelled as Ear, Yer, Er.
Folk synonyms for Venera (Chulpan, Dan Yoldus, Dan Setar, Suhra) and Mars(Marc Setar, Marh Setar) used mainly in poetry.
Not only tatar, modern azerbaijanian names for planets also close to commonly accepted termins: Merkuri , Venera, Mars,Yupiter, Saturn, Uran, Neptun, Pluton...
Any way, thanks for checking. Eric Utgerd 03:11, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
You wrote "Mercury", for example. It is not the same as "Merkuri", isn't it? Pluto is not the same as Pluton, isn't it?. Please do not do this again! --Jaroslavleff 17:36, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
I didn't read this article before entering. I just know names. But now you must be happy. All entries verified and tatar section is complete. Enjoy. 04:01, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Another request[edit]

Could you look at the entries listed on Category:tt:Cardinal numbers? I got the list from a page on Wikipedia, and don't know whether or not it's correct. --EncycloPetey 03:56, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Cardinal numbers almost correct (thanks Stephan). However, eighty(80) usually spelled in Latin as siksän.
Also forty(40) often spelled in Latin as qırık. Eric Utgerd 05:29, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Appendix:Units of time[edit]

You put secunda, minuta, saat, gün, watna, hafta, ay, yel, thanne as Tatar words. I am certain that some of these are completely wrong. For example, Tatar "c" is pronounced similar to English "j", and I doubt that the word for "second" is "сежунда". And what is the "th" in "thanne"? Since most Tatar is written in Cyrillic, you should give the Cyrillic spelling first. These may or may not be Tatar words, but if they are, they are misspelt. We want ONLY words that are spelled correctly and written in the proper alphabet. If you don’t know the real spelling, don’t put the word at all. —Stephen 14:30, 26 February 2007 (UTC)


Please, do not add ANY TATAR WORDS EVER!!! You don't know Tatar language, so please leave it. Do something else! --Jaroslavleff 17:58, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Follow rules: stay cool, be patient, be result oriented. I almost completed several categories Category:tt:Units of measure, Category:tt:Ordinal numbers, Category:Historical numbers. Enjoy. Eric Utgerd 04:01, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

New Template:crh-latin-verb-e ready. Enjoy. Best regrads. Eric Utgerd 00:10, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi, eric need new one. crh-latin-verb-ey Example : sebelemek: sebele, sebelıy (not sebelee), sebelegen --Mzekiu 23:37, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Ready. However, for this template use input word without last e, like this crh-latin-verb-ey|1=sebel Eric Utgerd 02:32, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Category names[edit]

When naming categories, we only capitalize the first word. Any following words are supposed to be all lower case. So, for example, Category:Historical Numbers should be Category:Historical numbers. Except for the first word, capital letters are only acceptable if the word is a proper noun, such as the name of a country or the name of a language. Common nouns like number have to be lower case. —Stephen 13:44, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Eric, you need to change all of the words from Category:Historical Numbers to Category:Historical numbers. We want to delete [:Category:Historical Numbers]] and we are waiting on you to finish. —Stephen 19:53, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
Done. I hope. Now you can delete old Category:Historical Numbers. - Eric Utgerd 01:01, 9 March 2007 (UTC)


Hey, when writing etymologies, could you please link the etymons? For example, take a look at what I've done at segregatsiya. Thanks! Atelaes 05:10, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks. Eric Utgerd 05:12, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Re: Expertise required[edit]

Kampela is derived from kampi (crank), which has originally meant also "twisted, crooked". "Root" (I'm not sure it is exactly correct term in all cases in linguistic sense) means the part of the word that is not inflected: kampel|a, plural kampel|at, genitive plural kampel|oiden etc. Click the star and you see an example of a word that inflects in exactly same way. --Jyril 18:57, 11 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi Eric Utgerd, сит does not mean "side", or anything else in Tatar, to the best of my knowledge. Could you please correct that. Borovi4ok (talk) 09:25, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

See WT:RFV#сит. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 01:29, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
