Again, welcome! --EncycloPetey 19:43, 3 December 2008 (UTC)


Please examine our minimum formatting requirements on WT:ELE. The entries you have added recently lack the inflection line, and place the category link in the middle of the entry, rather than at the end of the language section. Correcting this yourself will save others the trouble and time of doing so. --EncycloPetey 19:43, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

  • They lack an inflection line because they aren't inflected. Jonathan de Boyne Pollard 19:46, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
    A Wiktionary "inflection line" is the line immediately after the part of speech section header. Even uninflected words must have this line as part of Wiktionary's minimal format. --EncycloPetey 20:07, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
