Please don't remove definitions out of process (RfD or RfV). The wheels of our process grind slowly, but they do grind out bad definitions from the entries eventually. DCDuring TALK 13:43, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

  • Germanic etymology for fun contradicts itself. (The Appendix:Proto-Germanic/faimnijōn path says it's native, the fæmne path says it's borrowed from Latin.)
    It doesn't actually contradict itself. Read it more carefully and you'll see. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:54, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
    I dont see what you mean. In any case if you have to read carefully to find out what it means could it made simpler? Soap (talk) 04:51, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
    Probably could be. I'm not very good at that, though. Basically, it's about the difference between "derived from" and "cognate to" (or "akin to"). —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 04:56, 4 January 2013 (UTC)


Please be more careful. If you don't know anything about a language, don't add entries in it without double-checking. For example, the vast majority of Spanish nouns ending in -a are feminine, bot you marked this as masculine. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:20, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I copied it from another page and didnt realize that the m was a gender. Soap (talk) 00:48, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
Most such templates have documentation — see {{es-noun}} in this case. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:52, 22 February 2013 (UTC)


Could you add {{Babel}} to your user page? I'd appreciate it. --Dan Polansky (talk) 17:27, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done But what is wrong with transcluding my userpage onto my talk page? Soap (talk) 02:00, 7 November 2013 (UTC)


Hello. I don't know about the etymology of that particular word, but mensual (for "monthly") does exist in English. It's old-fashioned and fairly rare, though. Equinox 19:30, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
