Entries[edit]

Lists of mostly-formatted entries are being created on the following pages: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, & Y (there are no Z entries).

The idea is to pick these up one at a time and manually put them into their correct location (either a new page, or a new entry in an existing page), cleaning them up at the same time.

The part-of-speech needs to be replaced with one of: verb, adverb, adjective, noun, pronoun, conjunction, interjection, preposition, proper noun, article, prefix, suffix, or idiom.

The basic entry layout is as follows (but be sure to refer to the Wiktionary documentation for more details):

==Nyunga==

{{head|nys|xxxx}}
