Poll on formatting of etymologies

I would like to know your preference as regards the use of "<" vs "from" in the formatting of etymologies in Wiktionary, whatever that preference is. Even explicit statement of indifference would be nice. You can state your preference in the currently running poll: WT:BP#Poll: Etymology and the use of less-than symbol. I am sending you this notification, as you took part on some of the recent votes, so chances are you could be interested in the poll. The poll benefits from having as many participants as possible, to be as representative as possible. Feel free to ignore this notification. --Dan Polansky 10:49, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Hebrew participles

Hi. There's some discussion at [[Wiktionary talk:About Hebrew#"Participle" as a part-of-speech header in entries]] that you may be able to provide useful input to, if you're so inclined. Thanks.​—msh210 (talk) 06:42, 23 March 2011 (UTC)


Seems to be you that uploaded the audio file. It sounds very non-native. Since your user page says you are a native English speaker, I suppose you just tried to hard to get it right and it sounded forced. Any chance of a re-recording? Mglovesfun (talk) 10:56, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure where you're getting that it sounds forced. If you don't happen to like it, you can always record it yourself and upload an additional file to commons, and replace the link on the page. I listened to the recording and that's just the peculiarity of my accent coming through. While I am a native English speaker, and English is one of my first languages, it is not my only one, and I grew up with a variety of influences on my accent. Anyway. Whatever. I really don't understand where you're getting that it sounds forced and non-native, but I also frankly don't give a damn. --Neskayagawonisgv? 06:53, 18 April 2011 (UTC)


Hello, I just noticed that your pronunciation of "initiative" on the recording File:En-us-initiative.ogg sounds more like it begins with the "n" sound. I don't hear the "ih" at the beginning. And sorry to post here, I'm the opposite of you, and I don't really go onto IRC channels. Cheers, Keraunoscopia 05:27, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

I would like to point you to my response to Mglovesfun about robbery -- if you have a disagreement of sorts with how my pronunciation of a word in an audio file is, please feel free to record your own. The "ih" at the beginning is there, however it is rather quick and I do hear that it is masked by the "n" sound. But -- that is in fact how I say the word. --Neskayagawonisgv? 10:34, 17 May 2011 (UTC)


Well, after reading the "disclaimer" and other response you made about pronunciation I feel that I'm writing in vain, but still... I must point out that in this particular case I hear "guly". I can clearly hear "g" sound at the start of the word. You don't have to reply if you're going to copy/paste your standard answer, but just tell me... do you really hear "d" sound in this recording? Maybe the case is that you've started the recording after you already started saying the word, or you just edited out too much of the start of the recording? --RockyMM 08:17, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

I clearly hear "duly". I played it over and over and tried to imagine it saying "guly", but I could not hear a g-. —Stephen (Talk) 01:20, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
It does, in fact, say "duly", and thank you Stephen for checking that for me. But really, like the disclaimer says, if you don't like it or don't agree with it, RockyMM, please feel free to record your own. However, d/g is NOT a switch that I've been known to make (and yes, I have been known to make a few mistakes in the past, but this is not one of them), so whatever you thought you heard? I have no clue why you thought so. :) Secondly, I've moved the file out of the header for this section because it was breaking the way that my browser rendered it. --Neskayagawonisgv? 01:10, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
