English language -> multilingual

"Welcome to the English-language Wiktionary, a collaborative project to produce a free-content multilingual dictionary."

That sentence is sort of contradictory... When we say we make a multilingual dictionary, we should not be saying that this is the English Wiktionary's goal, since the English Wiktionary is only written in English, and only links to the same articles in other languages. Do any of you guys agree that we should change it in that sentence from "Welcome to the English-language Wiktionary" to just "Welcome to Wiktionary", or should we take out the word multilingual from the sentence? I'd like to hear some input. Rædi Stædi Yæti {-skriv til mig-} 19:37, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

The English Wiktionary is multilingual in that words in all languages are defined here. The meaning of multilingual in this case is explained in the following sentence, so I don't think that the wording is a problem. --Yair rand (talk) 21:18, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello everyone! I am new here and would like to know whether Wiktionary being described as multilingual means I can add entries from my local language? I am a co-founder of Dagbani wikipedia which is still in incubator and my language is Dagbani which is a language spoken by Dagbambas in the northern region of Ghana. How do I add entries in this language to Wiktionary?

Hi Alhassan Mohammed Awal, you are welcome to add English-language definitions of Dagbani words.

Missing suffix "-therapeutic"

I would like to add a new page, but cannot find any means for doing so. Perhaps I simply do not have the privilege. The suffix creates an adjective and refers to a technique or theory of therapy associated with the base word. It appears in such recognized words as hydrotherapeutic, chemotherapeutic, bibliotherapeutic, phototherapeutic. The companion suffix, -therapeutics, indicates the body of practice or theory. These should be added to the dictionary. Thanks. Sfarney (talk) 01:20, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

This is not actually a suffix, but is instead the word therapeutic with various prefixes attached to it. Please see the Wikipedia article Suffix to learn more about affixation. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:12, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
I have looked at suffix, but I find nothing that contributes to your objection. The same argument could be mounted against -therapy, and yet that word has an entry in the Wiktionary. Please explain why -therapy (which is a standalone word) is a suffix in the words "xylotherapy", "psychotherapy", and "chemotherapy" appended to the non-existent words "xylo", "psycho", and "chemo", but -therapeutic is a word with a prefix in "hydrotherapeutic." Thank you. Sfarney (talk) 18:33, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
Wrong actually, xylo-, psycho- and chemo- all have English entries. Anyway, I've nominated -therapy for deletion per your rationale. Renard Migrant (talk) 18:46, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
That is not the way I expected it to go, but at least it is rational and consistent. Thanks! Sfarney (talk) 21:03, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
Again, see the Wikipedia article Suffix (not our definition suffix), or even better Affix. The distinction we use is based on accepted linguistic criteria. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 21:26, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
How about -phobia, which we have? Equinox 21:31, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
-phobia has been a suffix longer than phobia has been a standalone word. --WikiTiki89 21:36, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
Pretty much; how can phobia be derived from -phobia if -phobia doesn't even exist? Renard Migrant (talk) 21:39, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Hausa Wiktionary

Yes check.svg Done by someone! Equinox 21:33, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
Great! Problem: the form should appear as "Hausa/هَوُسَ" with a slash because the language can be in latin (boko) or Arabic script (ajami). "هَوُسَ (Hausa)", the form on the page, implies that Hausa always appears in ajami.
Good point. I wasn't sure whether to include the parenthesized English translation, since it is identical to the Latin-script Hausa form. We don't have any other cases where a language has two scripts and the Latin-script one matches up with the English spelling. --WikiTiki89 15:19, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Synonyms for Vulgarities

Hey all,

I was wondering if you guys could start adding synonyms for vulgar words. Although people already know better words for many of them, some people actually don't. For example sometimes I use the word "half-ass", because I have a hard time thinking of a better word for it. Many people who use those words have a limited vocabulary, and that is a big problem. I think that we should open up for people who desire to use clean language.

Recent visits graph

I feel like it would be more visually appealing and waste less space if the graph was moved to above the "Index" box or simply moved to Statistics. Andrew Sheedy (talk) 04:12, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Moved above the Index box. —Stephen (Talk) 15:17, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Would there be a way to make it appear immediately to the left of the Behind the scenes box? Currently (at least on my screen) it doesn't align to its left, but rather to its bottom-left, which causes two unnecessary white spaces to appear (one above the graph, and one to its right below the Behind the scenes box). — Kleio (t · c) 14:46, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
I thought that might have just been me, so I didn't mention it, but it would be ideal if it could be placed right after the bottom paragraph of the introductory text, rather than after the "Behind the scenes" box. And Ditto to Saltmarsh's comment below. Andrew Sheedy (talk) 20:06, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
  • The Y-axis needs a label - views/hour, views/day, views/… — Saltmarsh. 07:41, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • "Recent Visits" is not sufficient explanation. It is not possible from this to understand exactly what the graph shows. Mihia (talk) 20:36, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
  • The template is supposed to support a "granularity" parameter that takes values like "daily", "hourly", "monthly". What we have looks like daily, not the default monthly. I don't think we have the ability to override the pseudo-default AFAICT. As the number is for daily visits to the entire project, we should be very embarrassed and worried that the numbers, if true, are so low. If it is monthly, it's even worse. I wouldn't want to advertise this low level of use. DCDuring TALK 13:53, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
It doesn't seem ready for prime time. DCDuring TALK 14:03, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
  • Really? I was pleasantly surprised. I used to think we had some 200 people visiting daily, apart from the editors. — Ungoliant (falai) 13:56, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
  • The wiktionary.org domain is in the top 1000 global sites according to both QuantCast and Alexa, with a monthly reach of about 2m. I think this is actually showing page views, not visits. We have around 50m monthly page views. - TheDaveRoss 15:20, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
  • So how is the graph supposed to be interpreted? That doesn't seem to match what it shows. DTLHS (talk) 19:14, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
I think it shows only the daily views of Wiktionary:Main Page specifically. — Kleio (t · c) 19:15, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Hah, well that is entirely useless. I have removed the graph. DTLHS (talk) 19:21, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
That.. was just a hunch, so maybe a bit quick to delete it. Looking at the template page, I think I was mistaken. Have a look at {{PageViews graph}}. On second look, it probably displayed the hourly page views of the entire site, given that it showed about 7,500 on average, and as TheDaveRoss noted we have about 50m pageviews a month (7500 * 24 * 30 = ~54million). — Kleio (t · c) 19:36, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
To add to this, {{PageViews graph | 180 | _ |granularity=daily}} yields the daily numbers of the entire (English?) Wiktionary; you can check it in a preview. — Kleio (t · c) 19:41, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Calculation of entry count

How is the entry count calculated? I just noticed that none of the columns at WT:Statistics give the number that's on the Main Page (according to those stats, the Main Page count is a significant underestimate). Andrew Sheedy (talk) 20:54, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

We use {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}. If you check some of the other wikis, such as ru:Main Page, es:Plantilla:Portada:Encabezado, or km:Main Page, you will find {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} there. —Stephen (Talk) 19:40, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
Well, now I'm confused. {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} is used on the "Main Page" of each Wiktionary to display the number of articles in that Wiktionary, and that's the figure that I'm familiar with. But you indicated WT:Statistics, and I don't know about that page. I don't understand the columns and I don't know how the figures are generated. There is also Wiktionary:Statistics/generated, which @Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV generates from a dump. I'm sure that Ungoliant can explain, but I don't know anything about those statistics pages. —Stephen (Talk) 20:00, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
And, to explain the difference: NUMBEROFARTICLES automatically counts the number of pages in the article namespace, whereas in the manual count of "entries" on WT:STATS, different language sections on the same page are counted as different entries. It's possible we should add the number of entries (from STATS) beside the number of articles. (The main page's count of the number of languages is already taken from, and anually updated based on, STATS.) - -sche (discuss) 19:55, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Why does ; redirect to the main page?

I want to learn more about the ; character and when it is used. Turns out that I cannot even search that. Try clicking the character?

Is there a page for the semicolon? If there is, can someone undo the redirection?

@BrightSunMan: Click the semicolon here: [1]. Equinox 16:12, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
@BrightSunMan: Use the search box at Special:Search. It doesn't redirect, and it has more features. Chuck Entz (talk) 06:57, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Need an index for all words

I want to just paw through all words starting with "iso" and I can't find such a list (I may be reduced to using my giant but old paper dictionary  ;-) ). If there isn't a list then it seems to me that it would be a useful feature. Sorry if this isn't the right place for the question, but shouldn't such a list be on the main page anyway?

@IrlSmith: Use Category:English_lemmas and click a letter. Equinox 21:56, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
(ec) If you need English words, try Category:English lemmas. Here are the words starting with "iso". — surjection??⟩ 21:57, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
You can also search by prefix category membership: Category:English words prefixed with iso-. This avoids getting non-prefixed ones like the name Isobel. However, some words may not have been added to the correct category yet. Equinox 22:01, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

Uh, what's up with the link to Kurdish Wikipedia?

It became an Lua error message. Apparently, the ISO-3 code for Kurdish is kur, not ku as mentioned in the error. ॥ ☼ সূর্যমান ☽ ॥ (talk) 20:17, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
