Appendix talk:Mongolian Swadesh list

Return to "Mongolian Swadesh list" page.

required changesEdit

The list should be converted into Cyrillic with Roman transliteration as in Wiktionary:Mongolian_transliteration. See also Appendix:Cyrillic_script#Mongolian_alphabet. If the word is used in Inner Mongolia only, they should be marked as such, e.g. эх (ex), ээж (eež); eji (Inner Mongolia), etc. --Anatoli 00:40, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

In Inner Mongolia Cyrillic is not used at all. Neither writing system is truly phonetic for Mongolian but the traditional script is less so as it reflects Classical Mongolian pronunciation to a greater degree, making it of particular interest in a Swadesh list. — hippietrail (talk) 14:25, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

How on earth do I add more language columns?Edit

Even after reading some online help on wikitext table editing I can't figure this out. It's as if some of it is obscured by templates. Where can I read about how to edit these Swadesh lists?

I wanted to add two new columns with just one entry each for now under the row "new":

Buryat "шэнэ"
Kalmyk "шин"
