Inflected Estonian words[edit]

Greetings. It's great to see that you're adding Estonian inflection templates and non-lemma (inflected) forms. I've been hoping for some time that somebody would do exactly that. :D I have a comment about categories, however: we used to have a category for each Finnish inflected form. Unfortunately, they mushroomed rapidly and we ended up with literally many hundreds of categories (cf. monsters like Category:Finnish singular agent participle translative forms, Category:Finnish singular adjective partitive forms). Therefore, I think a single category for inflected forms for each part of speech (e.g., Category:Estonian noun forms, Category:Estonian adjective forms) should be enough (in addition, special forms such as plural nouns, adjective degrees of comparison, and verb infinitives and participles are important enough to have their own categories). They will become very large, but that's not a problem since they're meant to be maintenance categories rather than word lists. You can take the Finnish category structure as an example. --Jyril 10:41, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your feedback! The comment on categories is entirely valid. I will recreate those, based on the categories used for Finnish. However, I'm not sure if I will manage to create all the inflection templates. At the moment I am trying to understand the ones created for Finnish, they are very helpful for me.

Yes, some excellent work. One very minor, very nitpicky thing: Could you please remember to insert four dashes "----" between different language sections when you encounter a word which exists in another language, as I have done with puisse. Many thanks. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 03:41, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
I will try to remember that! KSiimson 03:45, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Engine subsystems[edit]

Why are you not adding definitions? SemperBlotto 16:09, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

I was translating a text from Estonian and could not find these words from dictionaries, and after figuring out what they were I added these to Wiktionary for future reference. I am not in very good terms with defining engine parts, especially in a foreign language. ;) KSiimson 11:59, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
