Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary! We notice that you're making changes anonymously. Although this is perfectly all right, we'd like to encourage you to take the time to create an account and sign in to it when editing – it's free and easy. A number of good reasons to do so are listed at Wiktionary:Why create an account?.

Please note that we are not Wikipedia. If you have edited there, it won't be very difficult for you to find your way here, but there are a number of differences. For example, Wiktionary is case-sensitive: Kind (German) is not the same as kind (English, Danish, Dutch etc.) Also note that Wiktionary never uses parenthetic disambiguation, so where Wikipedia might have separate articles on Mercury (planet), Mercury (element), and Mercury (mythology), Wiktionary will only have one entry on Mercury which addresses proper noun uses, and an entry on mercury which addresses regular noun uses.

Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Questionable entries will be listed for verification, and, if they fail that process, will be deleted. Also, keep in mind our copyright policies: don't copy material from copyrighted sources here. Such additions will be deleted on sight. Submissions from IP addresses unfortunately are looked at more closely, so please take a minute to create an account.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question in the appropriate discussion room or ask me on my talk page.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary! --Ivan Štambuk 23:33, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Some of these already have articles, so I'll just queue them up for deletion with {{delete}}.

You could avoid these kind of mistakes by typing the word you want to add in a search box on the left - if it shows something when you hit ENTER, article already exists, and if it doesn't, click on the red wikilink in the first sentence and it will open up edit box in the main namespace (that is, without Category: or Wiktionary: prefix).

Hi there, and thank you for your great work on Frisian! Can I please ask that instead of writing:


you write:


This allows the many 'bots that Wiktionary uses to find the information in these pages. The same goes for every other template that adds headings. Thank you very much. Conrad.Irwin 15:05, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

I have fixed all the current entries (I think), and have updated {{fy-verb}} to include {{fy-conj}} and {{infl|fy|verb}} instead of writing these out in full. See you around. Conrad.Irwin 15:33, 6 February 2008 (UTC) (EDITED)
Sorry, subst: puts the contents of the template in the page source, see my edits, all I actually changed was to put subst: in, and it did the rest automatically. Hope this helps... (I updated my comment above to use fy- not fr-) Conrad.Irwin 16:58, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
Wiktionary has, unfortunately, a very complicated system of templates. the {{fy-verb}} that you created is a "preload" template, which means it fills in a lot of the things that you don't want to bother with (like headings) but that it should not be left in the article (it should be subst: instead). {{infl}} is an "inflection line" template, like the {{fy-pron}} - so you could create one that worked like {{en-verb}} if you wanted. Yours Conrad.Irwin 11:09, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
To be honest I have no idea what the template {{fy-pron}} does, but if it is a clone of {{en-pron}} then the documentation there should give you a clue. Conrad.Irwin 13:08, 7 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi there! You're doing some great work. However, to fit with established practice here, the Category should not be ?Category:Saterland Frisian days but rather Category:stq:Days of the week. This fits in with others of the same type, eg Category:ang:Days of the week, Category:fy:Days of the week etc etc. Ƿidsiþ 13:13, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

I will change that-SK luuut 13:14, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
In Old English the Category is added to Category:Old English nouns, but in West Frisian and Saterland Frisian it isn't added to the nouns category-SK luuut 13:20, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, you can do that if you like. I've changed the page slightly, have a look. If you can do the same kind of thing with months that would be great too. Keep up the good work! Ƿidsiþ 13:25, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Could you delete Category:Saterland_Frisian_months for me as well? Best regards--SK luuut 15:14, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

And Category:Old_Frisian_numbers? I merged it with another category and changed it in a redirect page--SK luuut 15:16, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

But Category:stq:Irregular verbs and stq:Verb forms should be named the other way. Categories by subject matter use lang: and categories by part of speech use Language. (Categories that are somewhere in between get debated.  :-) )—msh210 20:17, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

I will change it. You can delete it when I'm finished. Best regards, --SK luuut 20:18, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Sorry for the hassle. Any other questions, don't hesitate to ask me or at the information desk.—msh210 20:25, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Most of the times I assume things wrongly rather than asking questions:P-SK luuut 20:28, 30 December 2008 (UTC) P.S. since I'm taking much of your time anyways, could you please remove Category:Saterfrisian adverbs?


Hello, SK luuut,

Thank You for taking care of that. I got distracted and forgot, sort of assuming no one would notice anyway in that category. ;-) I couldn't be more pleased that I turned out to be wrong! So thank You for Your excellent contributions as well.

At talk:boi a user as said that boi is a West Frisian word meaning "boy", however from what I can tell the West Frisian word for "boy" is jonge. I don't speak the language and none of boi, boy, and jonge exist on the West Frisian wiktionary or wikipedia though so I'm not certain. As the most recently active speaker of West Frisian (who has a babel box on their user page), please could you comment there (talk:boi). Thank you. Thryduulf (talk) 00:19, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
