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


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!

RFD: Präzisionen[edit]

Ja, es ist für en.Wikt ausreichend, wenn ein Wort (und seine Bedeutung) mit Zitaten belegt ist, egal ob es in Referenzen ist. Wir tun das doch teilweise auch in de.Wikt — ich habe Homosexualitäten vor kurzem belegt, obwohl der Duden keinen Plural führt. Cheers, - -sche (discuss) 20:15, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Hallo -sche,
Nett, Dich auch hier anzutreffen. :) Ich verstehe schon die Positionen, allerdings machen sich bei solchen Sachen bei mir Bauchschmerzen bemerkbar. Denn Präzisionen sind schon rein logisch fragwürdig. Ich denke eher, dass die Autoren "Präzisierungen" meinen. Was heißt eigentlich RFD? Schöne Grüße --Yoursmile 12:57, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
RFD ist WT:RFD, Requests for Deletion. Du hast Recht, dass der Plural angesichts der allgemeinen Bedeutung "Genauigkeit" fragwürdig ist. Vielleicht ist das Wort doch mit einer Bedeutung wie "Genauigkeit unter Einhaltung geforderter Toleranzen" verwendet. "Das vorgeschlagene Verfahren ergab Präzisionen von 2,5 bis 8,7%" wäre dann "es ergab am besten eine Präzision von 2,5% (der Wert weicht nur 2,5% vom richtigen Wert ab), am schlechtesten eine Präzision von 8,7%". Wenn die Referenzen führen diesen Plural und jene Bedeutung nicht, und wir sie doch rausgefunden haben, dann haben wir (mal Denglisch zu sprechen) got a leg up on them. (Das ist jedenfalls die Hoffnung. Ob das immer noch nur einen Fehler der Autoren belegt...) liebe Grüße - -sche (discuss) 04:39, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Adding content below Anagrams[edit]

Anagrams are almost always the last heading (at L3) in a L2 section, often following References (at L3). See uncreative. Have a good time! DCDuring TALK 23:07, 5 July 2012 (UTC)


Dear Yoursmile, you are running a bot at for adding interwiki links. But unfortunately it doesn't have any bot flag. So please request for a bot approval here. Otherwise if it runs without any approval it'll be blocked without further notice. Thank you for understanding. Face-smile.svg --Pratyya (Hello!) 13:41, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Done. Thanks and best regards --Yoursmile (talk) 13:51, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for requesting. Now as we don't have any local crat so please add

You honestly believe there is an archaic dative for the German word for cooktop? SemperBlotto (talk) 22:20, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

I reverted your edit, because there are two genetives. It is conceivable that there is an dative form ending with -e. See also w:de:Dativ#Dativ-e (summarized: Nouns (masculin and neutrum), ending with -(e)s, got in Middle High German a -e. Today it still can be used, because of stylistic or rhythmic reasons). But there are no examples on Google. Therefore i don't insist that we keep the alternative dativ form. Best regards --Yoursmile (talk) 08:54, 3 February 2014 (UTC)


There are a lot of entries I made on DAWiktionary (like hundreds) that I'd like YS-Bot to just go through and inter-wiki them all. Is there a way I can request for it to do so every once a few days or something? Because for some pages, interwiki links just don't get successfully added in years, so for some reason I have some little amount of trust in bots. NativeCat drop by and say Hi! 02:00, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Tomorrow I'm gonna start YS-Bot again. :) Best regards --Yoursmile (talk) 09:23, 18 January 2015 (UTC)


Can you edit interwiki links in tg.wikt, too please. And thanks Tomophone (talk) 06:25, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

I don't add interwiki links anymore. You could contact de:User:Udo T.. Best regards --Yoursmile (talk) 07:27, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi Yoursmile! I see that you have some knowledge in Low German and more importantly, that you were active not so long ago. Do you mind taking a look at this anon's edits? I reverted some of them, but they made some orthographic changes which are harder for me to evaluate. Thank you in advance! --Robbie SWE (talk) 09:10, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

I'm sorry but Joachim Mos hasn't been active since last year. --Robbie SWE (talk) 17:18, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps at nds.wiktionary or try to email. Best regards --Yoursmile (talk) 17:24, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
