Wiktionary:Requested entries (Danish)

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.
  • If the entry already exists, but seems incomplete or incorrect, do not add it here; add a request template to the entry itself to ask someone to fix the problem, e.g. {{rfp}} or {{rfe}} for pronunciation or etymology respectively.
    — Note also that such requests, like the information requested, belong on the base form of a word, not on inflected forms.

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.
  • 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.

  • bestand PseudoSkull (talk) 05:43, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
    • Is it really "From Low German bestant", and not from Low German Bestant or Bestand or Middle Low German bestant?
      • @ (Not sure pinging IPs works) Politiken's Nudansk Ordbog also says "from Low German bestant (and adds that bestant is a verbal noun formed from bestân cf. bestå), but "Low German" (nedertysk) probably means Middle Low German. I've never seen Low German nouns being capitalized in etymologies.__Gamren (talk) 00:39, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
        • Den Danske Ordbog distinguishes between middelnedertysk and nedertysk, and gives the latter as the origin of bestand[1]. Compare boghvede. Vox Sciurorum (talk) 15:07, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

  • bøvelse - A translation given for Podunk is Østre Bøvelse. (In the USA we sometimes use East Bumfuck as a name of a nowhere place. In my experience the direction, when supplied, is East.) Vox Sciurorum (talk) 20:13, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
  • byrum Urban space. (Ex: "Et nyt byrum med plads til alle." = "A new urban space with space for everyone." frederiksplads)

  • længerevarende - Used on DDO for old terms; I don't know whether it is the same as our obsolete or archaic or neither.
    • @Vox Sciurorum It just means "long-lasting, of long duration", and isn't a meaningful label for a word. If you point me to an entry, I'll translate it in context for you.__Gamren (talk) 20:47, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
  • licitere - Source: DDO
  • landsthing, "the upper house of the Danish Rigsdag or parliament"; cf. Swedish landsting.


  • masur - apparently some kind of wood
    • I think this is a variant of maser, Acer campestre. Compare Middle English maser, Proto-Germanic *masuraz. Vox Sciurorum (talk) 22:13, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
      • ODS says that it is especially used for Acer campestre, but defines maser more generally as a tree with "maser formations". The second definition is "a bulbous hypertrophic formation, that occurs on the trunk or branches of certain trees (especially various species of maple), whose wood, due to its characteristic structure, is used for fine works of carpentry". There's probably some English word for this.__Gamren (talk) 21:25, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
        • The formations are burls (or a burl is one such formation). I don't know offhand if there is a word for a tree with burls. Vox Sciurorum (talk) 21:43, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
