About Me edit

Hi! My name is Báyọ̀ (he/him), and I've been an active member of Wiktionary for the past year or so. I've been pursuing a B.S.A. in Computer Science & a B.A. in Spanish & French and a minor in Korean, and work as a Software Engineer. My main projects have been focusing on improving the digitalization of Yorùbá, 제줏말 (jejunmal) (Jeju language), Naijá (also known as Nigerian Pidgin) and other minority languages, starting with Yorùbá entries as seen here: ọ̀kan (Wiktionary's Foreign Word of the Day for September 23, 2021), and with 제줏말 lemmas as found here: ᄒᆞ다 (hawda). I focus a lot on making sure that entries are created well first with as much information as reasonably possible (derived terms, usage examples, quotes, references), which may lead me to work on entries for weeks at a time, so if you request an entry, it may take longer than expected. Feel free to leave me a message or tag me if you have any questions!
