Wiktionary:Requested entries (Wolof)

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

Have an entry request? Add it to the list – but please:

  • Consider creating a citations page with your evidence that the word exists instead of simply listing it here
  • 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) of nouns in languages that have them.
  • For inflected languages, 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.

Moore 2014 glosses jàpp lool as “be very busy”, but this doesn't fit with the supposed Wolof proverb (mooy jàpp golo “one catches a monkey”) in a way that is obvious to me. Cnilep (talk) 01:10, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

K[edit]

L[edit]

M[edit]

Moore 2014 glosses this as “3.subj.foc”, which I assume is “third-person subject/focus pronoun”, rather like one as a pronoun, or impersonal you. Am I correct about that? Cnilep (talk) 01:06, 21 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
