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.

Thank you for your work with Yiddish! A couple of minor technical details about plurals:

  • You can create plurals automatically by going to Special:Preferences, going to the tab 'Gadgets', going to the section 'Editing gadgets', and clicking the second checkbox. Once you do that, plurals will appear green and clicking on them will fill in all the information.
  • Also, in {{yi-noun}}, plurals can be given as pl=n or pl=s if the plural is regularly formed by adding one of these. In such cases, giving the pltr= is not necessary.
Please ask if you have any questions, and again, thank you! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 19:06, 11 April 2013 (UTC)


You changed the pronunciation section of Pfanne, saying that it's pronounced /panə/ in the North and West. That's obviously not true, because no speaker would read out the word Pfanne as /panə/. What you meant, of course, was that there's a dialectal form Panne or Pann in those areas, but that has nothing to do with pronunciation. So I reverted it. What you could do is to create a separate entry for the word Panne and mark that as dialectal! Best regards.
