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)[reply]
(ec) If you need English words, try Category:English lemmas. Here are the words starting with "iso". — surjection??⟩ 21:57, 26 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
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)[reply]

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)[reply]

About listing German Wiktionary

The German Wiktionary has recently surpassed the 1,000,000 entry boundary — so, does this mean that it should be listed as such, or are we perhaps waiting to ensure it doesn't return to below 1 million for some reason?

At any rate, I just wanted to notify anyone who has edit permissions to update it if possible, and if it's in order. Thanks — Kiril kovachev (talk) 20:03, 24 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

There's no automated process that I know of to do this. Updated. DAVilla 11:25, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Wiktionary in Zealandic: +100 entries

The Wiktionary in Zealandic has reached more of 200 entries.

Wiktionary in Cherokee

The Wiktionary in Cherokee actually has 293 articles, but is listed as having 100,000+, please correct this. - Iohanen (talk) 14:06, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

That was odd. Fixed. Chuck Entz (talk) 14:19, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Amharic Wiktionary: Admins, Templates, Counter

  1. I think there's a problem with the counter on the amharic version of wiktionary because I've created about 20 pages (of contents) since November 2 and I've never seen it change the number of total pages. It's a little bit frustrating.
  2. Is there any admin there? I ask this because I don't know where to submit some requests (E.G for bot account or to import xml from other wikt)
  3. Last but not least: is it possible to import or create (if yes how) Translation templates like trans-top? Abreham97 (talk) 03:16, 11 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Abreham97 I've heard if the page doesn't contain links, then it won't be counted. Could this be the problem?

Most requests should be brought up for discussion in the Wiktionary:Beer parlour. I don't personally know the answers. You can specifically read the Wiktionary:Bots policy first. DAVilla 09:52, 27 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Amharic wiktionary counter

Just in the first page of list of words starting with "a" there are 345 words (look at here) But still the counter of Amharic says 384 content! What is this madness! Abreham97 (talk) 00:43, 16 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Lombard Wiktionary

Eh, close enough. Added. DAVilla 17:32, 7 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Language count

We can now claim definitions in over 4,300 languages! Can someone change the Main Page accordingly? Steinbach (talk) 22:16, 18 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, anybody listening? My question was in earnest. Can someone with the rights to edit the Main Page change the line <p>'''[[Special:Statistics|{{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}]]''' entries with English definitions <span style="white-space: nowrap;"> from over '''[[Wiktionary:Statistics|4,200]]''' languages</span></p> into <p>'''[[Special:Statistics|{{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}]]''' entries with English definitions <span style="white-space: nowrap;"> from over '''[[Wiktionary:Statistics|4,300]]''' languages</span></p>?
