Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

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 explained (ELE) 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 to 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! --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 20:58, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Proto-Slavic forms[edit]

On Wiktionary it is the custom to write ŭ and ĭ with the Cyrillic letters ъ and ь instead. Like in *dymъ or *dьnь. Could you do that too when you create entries? —CodeCat 01:22, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Now that I've re-read it, it does some ambiguous! --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 21:36, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Slovene declensions[edit]

It's not really considered the best idea to write all the forms out manually in the entry. We have templates that generate the forms so that there is no duplication of work. They should be used instead. However, those templates don't yet cover all nouns, so if you find a noun that none of the templates work for, please add {{rfinfl|sl|noun}} instead, so that we know it still needs a template made for it. —CodeCat 01:28, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
