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.

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:

  • For words which are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in Chinese 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.

      It's often hard to know. But at least some other dictionaries do indeed include it. My personal preference has always been to respect the inclusion decisions of professional lexicographers. So I would check what a well-regarded Chinese dictionary does. — hippietrail (talk) 04:45, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
