I'm a careful dabbler in quite a few languages. At one time I'd have put myself in the fr-2 category, but it's been too long since I really used it. I mainly worked on Catalan entries here as a way of helping me learn the language, but occasionally that also forced me to do work on the English entries as well. As for why català? Why not?

I was an administrator here between 4 April 2009 and 23 February 2018 doing various administrator type things, but inactivity led to me being de-admined.

Catalan dictionaries


Some links to comprehensive online Catalan dictionaries.

  • (GDLC) Gran Diccionari de llengua catalana
    Has etymology info and is the easiest one to use to find words of similar spellings.
  • (DCVB) Diccionari català-valencià-balear
    Has etymology, pronunciation, and dialectal info.
  • (DIEC2) Diccionari de llengua catalana Segona edició
    No etymology, but has the most comprehensive search functions. Only one of the three that will find entries if you enter a non-lemma form.

Potential entries


Occasionally I come up with potential Catalan entries that I just can't verify enough to warrant including. These are given here for future reference if I can come up with better references.

Catalan conjugation tables


I wasn't happy with the existing tables, but I certainly was not about to work on them live. If I ever do return to being an active editor, I'd have to see what changes have already been made to the tables while I was gone.



Various English words I've worked on as a result of having caught my eye while patrolling recent changes or working on Catalan entries that I'm fond of.



Doubtful I'll ever get to these now, as I don't foresee myself returning to being an active editor.

Request for Beer


Since there is no {{rfbeer}} template, it can be problematic to open a new Beer Parlor discussion when the page is long and the connection is slow, here is helpful link.
