Introduction[edit]

Wikipedia has an article on:
Wikipedia

The aim of this page is to explain the norms used in Ido entries. It is intented to complement, not supersede, WT:CFI and WT:ELE. Ido is considered a well documented language, which means that all senses must be attestable, so that it is possible to find at least three independent attestations spanning at least a year.

Verbs[edit]

Category:Ido verbs contains the present infinitive forms of verbs, which are the lemmas. The present infinitives all end in -ar, and all Ido verbs are regular.

For verb entries, use a "Conjugation" subheader with template {{io-verb-conj}} under it.

Pronouns vs. Determiners[edit]

If a word stands in place of a noun, it is a pronoun, and if it stands in place of an adjective, it is a determiner. For example, "ica" is a demonstrative determiner and a demonstrative pronoun and "ico" is a demonstrative pronoun; "mea" is a possessive determiner and "meo" a possessive pronoun.

Numbers[edit]

Cardinal numbers shall go under the header "Numeral", and categorized in "io:Cardinal numbers". Ordinal numbers, all ending in suffix -esma=-esm-+-a, shall go under the header "Adjective" and categorized in "io:Ordinal numbers".

Hyphens will be used for compound numbers, for example 17 = dek-e-sep, 584 = kinacent-e-okadek-e-quar.
