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



Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page 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.
  • Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

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.

In future, please do not remove the "From" and final period in etymology sections. Those items are supposed to be there. Removing them creates work for other editors who must put them back or revert your edits to correct the formatting. --EncycloPetey 03:01, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Unfortunately this is not true. WT:ELE doesn't mention the matter, it's purely stylistic rather than policy. We can't start blocking users because of personal preference. All Hell would break loose. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:23, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Ottoman Turkish[edit]

What's your opinion about merging the treatment of Ottoman Turkish ({{ota}}) and Turkish ({{tr}}) on Wiktionary? Should we leave only one code (tr) and treat Ottoman as the same Turkish but in different script, like in Azeri gülüş? Is there a difference in inflection of Ottoman and modern Turkish? --Vahag 10:32, 30 October 2010 (UTC)



Category:English_phrasebook is in need of Turkish translations. Please help out if you can. --Anatoli 12:02, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Adjectives + "to be"[edit]

Hey there OG, could you check that these are correct? If not, please let me know what I need to fix.
