Krio (ISO code kri) is an English-based creole spoken chiefly in Sierra Leone. This page documents common practices and standards used across Wiktionary in entries for this language.

Orthography[edit]

The standard orthography from Revised Kono, Krio, Limba, Mende, and Themnɛ orthographies (1984) should be used for lemmatisation. The list of graphs used can be found at Wikipedia.

Spellings that do not follow this standard may be included if they are citeable. The format of an alternative spelling should look like this (from foh):

==Krio==
===Preposition===
{{head|kri|preposition}}
# {{alternative spelling of|fɔ|lang=kri}}

Attestation[edit]

As a language with limited documentation, only one use or mention is necessary to cite a term. If the validity of a term is doubted, WT:RFV can be used.

Terms should display the {{LDL|kri}} template if they use less than three uses to verify an entry, which produces the following output:

This entry has fewer than three known examples of actual usage, the minimum considered necessary for clear attestation, and may not be reliable. Krio is subject to a special exemption for languages with limited documentation. If you speak it, please consider editing this entry or adding citations. See also Help and the Community Portal.
