Hi Sanna, and welcome to the English wiktionary. I'm glad we get a Swedish-speaking language expert - that's sourly needed :D \Mike 13:30, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your welcome Mike, but rest assured I will primarily be working on sv:. *smile*--sanna 14:48, 15 February 2006 (UTC)


Sanna, It's good to see you over here, too. (I fear I won't soon be contributing much of use to the sv: wikt). Here's our standard help stuff, for good measure. --Dvortygirl 06:48, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

Invitation to contribute[edit]


You might or might not already be aware that there is now a new system in place for marking translations that need to be checked (those that are suspected of being incorrect or those where it is not clear which sense(s) of a word the translations apply to). (See here for the Beer parlour discussion on this topic.)

Translations to be checked are now categorised by language. For example, Category:Translations_to_be_checked_(French) contains a list of all words where French translations need to be checked. This is designed to make the checking of these translations easier to maintain and work with.

I'm contacting everyone who has expressed an interest in working on translations or has indicated in Wiktionary:Babel that they have a good knowledge of a particular foreign language or languages.

Would you be interested in helping out with the translations to be checked for Swedish? If so, please read the page on how to check translations.

If you want to reply to this message, please do so on my talk page. Thanks for your help you can provide.

Thanks for spotting that - I have moved it to lowercase. We Capitalise the actual taxonomic entries for species, genera and the like. Cheers SemperBlotto 09:17, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Have a nice Summer, then![edit]

I'm sorry to see you go from Swedish Wiktionary. I hope your "summer vacation" is of the kind you return from. I understand you, of course. The whole business was... stupid. (I put this here as I'm not sure you'll see it at your Swedish talk page.) /ever wonder


Isn't there a difference between these words, would you say? To me, it seems as "svara" and its inflections concerns persons (Jag svarades av två personer samtidigt) while "besvara" concerns actions or the question: (Frågan besvarades av två personer samtidigt). Does this distinction really disappear in perfekt participle? I agree that "svarad" is very rare, but I'm not certain if I would identify it with "besvarad", though... \Mike 16:53, 11 July 2006 (UTC)


Hi ... If Keeper is a separate page, it does raise the issue of whether it should exist at all: a minor variant of an English word used in one work of fiction (however significant) doesn't usually rate a Wiktionary entry.

But: combining goalkeeper and wicket-keeper is brilliant! Now we can do away with the football/soccer dispute! (Have you read the section on WT:RFC?) It should be sports, and use the template. I'll go do that, you see what I did. Thanks! Robert Ullmann 09:23, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Hey! I'm a Harry Potter fan! Note there is a sports template, rather than using cattag|sports. I think the idea is that cattag shouldn't ever appear directly in a page now. Makes it possible to fix it later, when the wikimedia s/w has more capability. Make sure you read the keeper section in WT:RFC Robert Ullmann 09:48, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
no, you've solved it. did you read the note I just added to the discussion?

inflection templates[edit]

BTW, I've read your notes on sv- templates. I've started working on sw- (Swahili) templates, making an sw-noun out of Rod Smith's en-noun template. I think I understand most of the intricacies, but one always learns more. I'll be glad of comments on sw-*, and to offer help when I have wikitime. Robert Ullmann 10:32, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
