Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search


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.

Again, welcome! Wyang (talk) 23:35, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your work adding definitions to characters! It's almost embarrassing how Wiktionary is over ten years old but doesn't have definitions for basic characters. —suzukaze (tc) 08:55, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Why this edit? 一生 is pronounced yīshēng, same as 一聲 and 醫生. ---> Tooironic (talk) 11:15, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

@Tooironic:But 一生 is pronounced yìshēng according to tone sandhi, hence not a homophone of 一聲 and 醫生.Mteechan (talk) 13:29, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
But on Wiktionary our pinyin is always pre-tone-sandhi. ---> Tooironic (talk) 01:46, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
@Wyang, Atitarev can anyone help with this? ---> Tooironic (talk) 06:27, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
@Tooironic It was my fault when automatically updating the homophones page. Although all of these words have the Pinyin of yīshēng, 一生 is not homophonous with the rest, so shouldn't be listed in the same series. Listing all of them in yīshēng would be okay though. Wyang (talk) 06:29, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
OK, thank you for clearing that up. ---> Tooironic (talk) 06:45, 14 October 2017 (UTC)


Could you please explain your edit here? What does "wu" mean? Do you mean 吳語? ---> Tooironic (talk) 00:37, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

(it reminds me of Cantonese 唔好. —suzukaze (tc) 00:45, 6 December 2017 (UTC))
I mean Wu regional Putonghua, but don't know what tag should I use. Mteechan (talk) 19:33, 6 December 2017 (UTC)
