Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search


Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page 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.
  • 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 do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

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.

Primary stress[edit]

Please mark primary stress in pronunciations with ˈ rather than with an apostrophe. --EncycloPetey 19:58, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

two small issues re pronunciation[edit]

Hi Spilbubay, and thank you for your work on pronunciations. There are two small issues that I've noticed from a random selection of your recent edits.

Firstly the SAMPA equivalent of /ɹ/ is Template:X-SAMPA (although there are many examples of Template:X-SAMPAchar, these are gradually getting fixed as people like me spot them).

Secondly, we use /ə(ɹ)/ (rather than just /ə/) in UK pronunciations where some accents are rhotic and others non-rhotic, e.g. the final syllable of robber. Similarly we use /ɜː(ɹ)/ where appropriate. Thryduulf (talk) 19:03, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
