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 (EL) 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 for 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! Equinox 18:41, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Just wondering[edit]

I was just wondering why you were adding French plural nouns, rather than the singular. The plural then gets added automagically at some later date. SemperBlotto (talk) 20:02, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Good question, I was actually planning to do it later after doing all the plural nouns because I'm not confidant yet for my editing skills on wiktionary, I would appreciate if you continue doing the singular because it will be faster and I'm sure you're better at it shiro1998 (talk) 22:50, 13 August 2017 (UTC)


You say this is a "noun plural form" but then say it is "feminine singular". I think it is time that you learnt how to edit properly on this Wiki. SemperBlotto (talk) 05:24, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

I didn't noticed that or else I would not have made that mistake, from now on I will make sure to edit properly before editing or creating a page. shiro1998 (talk) 15:02, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

French plurals[edit]

You may be blindly copying some errors from French Wiktionary, e.g. wackagings plural may not exist at all (check Google). Equinox 13:17, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

Constructed languages[edit]

Thank you for adding these. However, you need to check that they all meet WT:ATTEST. That means that the name of each language needs to have been used at least three times by different people in durably archived media (so basically anything physically printed, or anything on Google Books or Usenet). That does not seem to be the case for at least some of these, like Enchanta. Having a Wikipedia article is no guarantee that a Wiktionary entry can be created as well. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 19:46, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

I see, if you think it doesn't meet the criteria you can delete it. When I saw Atlantean in wiktionary I thought I could do to the others too, my bad. shiro1998 (talk) 19:52, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Well, the point is that you should check whether entries meet the criteria yourself, before you add them. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:03, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

avez-vous des frères ou sœurs[edit]

I've corrected the spelling mistake (the ligature is compulsory). More importantly, however, it sounds slightly ungrammatical: it would be better to say "avez-vous des frères et sœurs ?". --Barytonesis (talk) 20:08, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks and now that you mention it, you're right it has more senses. shiro1998 (talk) 20:16, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

"Norwegian Bokmal" entries[edit]

Language names need to exactly match the names in Module:languages/data2. Please use "Norwegian Bokmål" in the future. DTLHS (talk) 18:36, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Alright, I'll keep in mind. shiro1998 (talk) 19:40, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Improper use of context labels[edit]

I noticed you are adding the context label "cardinal" to a whole slew of entries. Context labels are for just that, to show the context in which a sense is used. "Cardinal" is clearly not a context, so it does not belong in the definition. Please be so kind and undo all the recent edits in which you added it. —Rua (mew) 18:58, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

I see, I'll undo it right away. shiro1998 (talk) 20:13, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
