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 (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.

Can you please use {{auto cat}} on categories instead of putting it all in manually? —CodeCat 18:41, 3 August 2017 (UTC)


Please start quotation lines with #, so that they appear under the definition (diff). DTLHS (talk) 17:09, 6 August 2017 (UTC)


Hi. I appreciate your contribution to Tagalog entries. However, please be careful of editing mistakes. Proper bordering, indenting, etc. I've looked at your edits and have seen quite a few mistakes. Please take note. Thanks. --Mar vin kaiser (talk) 04:43, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi, again. Also please put slashes around your IPA pronunciation / / like so. Thanks! --Mar vin kaiser (talk) 14:25, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
Hi, again. Also, please don't forget to put "----" above or below if there are other entries. Thanks! --Mar vin kaiser (talk) 15:04, 10 August 2017 (UTC)

Stop adding useless categories

And what do you mean? Do you mean the topical categories, with the language code and topic? But why do you think of them as unnecessary?-TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 04:07, 26 August 2017 (UTC)


You can put this at Module:User:TagaSanPedroAko/tl-IPA and use it as normal code. —suzukaze (tc) 07:46, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

<ng> in MOD:tl-pron[edit]

This is outputting /nɡ/, but shouldn't it be /ŋɡ/ (or just /ŋ/, at least word-finally)? I am not too familiar with Tagalog phonology, but this seems wrong. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 07:28, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Wow, it looks like you fixed it literally less than a minute before I posted this. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 07:30, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
@Metaknowledge If you or someone can fix that, do it. I already tried to fix it, but with no success. If the module needs revamping, please do it if you can. -TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 07:32, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
@Metaknowledge Hopefully, it is fixed now. Need to deal with other digraphs, such as those which equals to IPA affricate consonants in the common urban accents.-TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 09:37, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Maybe @Wyang, suzukaze-c could help you — I'm pretty bad at Lua myself, so I try not to get involved. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:41, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
I've tried to clean up the code a bit. I hope I've interpreted the module correctly... please check the output on {{tl-IPA}}. Also, the existing comparisons on the template should be incorporated into the module. Wyang (talk) 23:19, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

translation request[edit]

Hi there. Could you add a Tagalog translation of attractive please. I am about to meet a Filipina lady. SemperBlotto (talk) 18:22, 1 October 2017 (UTC)


Hi! I changed the link to the word makalinow to Tagalog, as it's clearly not a Spanish word. Thanks --P5Nd2 (talk) 10:14, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
