Wiktionary:Requested entries (Russian)

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

Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.
  • Check the Wiktionary:Criteria for inclusion if you are unsure if it belongs in the dictionary.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • Add glosses or brief definitions.
  • Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
  • If you know what a word means, consider creating the entry yourself instead of using this request page.
  • Please indicate the gender(s) .
  • If you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc.) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc.) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • For words which are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in Cyrillic script.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

@Per utramque cavernam: I personally don't know what this word means and if it's ever used, not just mentioned. The word was used in the Guinness book and is mentioned everywhere as the longest Russian word formed by adding real components. I'll let it sit here and will decide what to do with it later. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 11:10, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

Do you have to say anything to protect this potential entry, also linked at рентгеноэлектрокардиографи́ческий (rentgenoelektrokardiografíčeskij). --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 06:07, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
It may not be a real word. Benwing2 (talk) 17:07, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
I think the word is conceivable, but it's hard to translate it all by itself. If I saw it in context, I would probably understand it. Offhand, I would guess something like "who/which performs multiple very high examinations/reviews." —Stephen (Talk) 18:38, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
It’s supposed to be the longest word actually used (you can arbitrarily coin words of any length). It sounds authentic enough, such terms of address were common in the Tsar times, someone could easily go too far, but I cannot find any attestations nor mentions in trustworthy literature.

Thank you both. It still seems only theoretical, no actual usage. As such, it may belong to an appendix as a curiosity. Repeating the ping, just in case: (Notifying Benwing2, Cinemantique, KoreanQuoter, Useigor, Wanjuscha, Wikitiki89, Stephen G. Brown, Per utramque cavernam, Guldrelokk): . --Anatoli T.

Unsorted Requests or Unknown Spelling[edit]

@Benwing2: Hi. Is there a way to (semi)automate this form creation? We need inflected forms for, at least, basic numerals. Unfortunately, they use old-style templates. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 21:41, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Atitarev It looks like only 1-4 have special templates. It would be easier to automate if I rewrote them to use the normal {{ru-noun-table}} template, although that might require adding some functionality for один and два. I think if I did that I could hack my inflection-creating script to create inflections for numbers and such. Benwing2 (talk) 21:50, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Atitarev BTW what does it mean that три and четыре have two accusatives? Is this an animacy distinction, like for два? If so, is it the case that only два, три, четыре and derived compound numerals (e.g. двадцать два, тридцать четыре) have an animacy distinction, and other numerals such as одиннадцать and сорок don't? Benwing2 (talk) 22:01, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Atitarev OK, I fixed the declension of три and четыре to use {{ru-noun-table}} and fixed up my create_ru_inflections.py script to handle numerals. I still have to fix 21-29, and один and два will take more work. Question, however ... should the forms of numerals other than один be listed as "singular", "plural" or neither? Currently they are listed as singular, based on the fact that numerals starting with 5 decline as singulars. By analogy I list 3 and 4 as singular as well, but this may not be correct; etymologically I think their forms are actually dual, cf. instrumental in -ма. Benwing2 (talk) 23:21, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
@Benwing2: Thanks! I will respond when I have a bit more time. Yes, два, три, четыре and compounds have animate/inanimate declensions and others don't. There are also animate двое, трое, четверо, пятеро, etc. Not quite sure about singular/dual/plural. I'll have to research this. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 01:56, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
@Benwing2: I think you can use singular or neither, yes, etymologically they were duals in Old Russian but dual no longer exists in modern Russian but causes "weirdness" in declension of nouns with numerals and numerals themselves. On remainders of dual in Russian; Двойственное число. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 05:55, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
@Mx. Granger: The forms of два (dva) have been added but we want more forms of basic numerals. @Benwing2: Do you require anything else? I chose a simple approach for making forms of два (dva), see e.g. двух (dvux). --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 22:46, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
@Atitarev Thanks. I don't think I need anything else. I'll leave the declensions claiming that they're singular but hack my script to not include the word "singular" in the inflection, so that e.g. пятью just says it's the instrumental of пять. Benwing2 (talk) 23:18, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
@Atitarev BTW I'm thinking it's better to say that двумя is the masculine, feminine and neuter instrumental of два instead of listing it as instrumental of два and separately of две, since две is just the feminine of два. This would be more consistent with the way that adjectives are handled. If you're OK with this change, I'll go ahead and make it. Benwing2 (talk) 23:23, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
@Benwing2: Thanks, yes, I'm OK with this.--Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 23:30, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
@Atitarev Made the changes. One question ... is двух really neuter animate (examples of neuter animate words are чудовище, чадо and мазло)? Benwing2 (talk) 23:54, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
