Introduction

edit
  • Wiktionary is a dictionary website that you can voluntarily contribute to if you have some time and are interested. You should do your best and enjoy the opportunity to expand your horizons.
  • I got a score of 5 on my AP Human Geography exam after using the exam prep book but without having taken the class. Unfortunately, I received no college credit for that score, unlike all my other AP exams.
  • My alternative account created in accordance with Wiktionary:Accounts is User:Geologyinvestigative.
  • For me, editing on this website is an incredible learning experience. It is also a source of great personal growth for me. Everything I have done on Wiktionary is only scratching the surface of what I would like to see done. If I disagree with you, I'm probably wrong-- so I offer you my apologies now in advance!

Goals

edit
  • Leon E. Seltzer, editor (1952), “Preface”, in The Columbia Lippincott Gazetteer of the World[8], Morningside Heights, NY: Columbia University Press, →OCLC, page v, column 2:
    For languages which do not use the Latin alphabet (such as Arabic, Chinese, Greek, and Russian), the book provides, in addition to English names or conventional spellings, at least one — and usually two — consistent transliterations. In this matter, where English has long responded to several transliteration systems, the usefulness of this procedure will be apparent; the transliterated names in this book constitute a degree of parallel listings nowhere before attempted.
  • Wiktionary should fulfill a role for the digital age like the "parallel listings" goal described in the Columbia Lippincott Gazetteer. Given Wiktionary's descriptivist stance, reliance on citations and thoughtful community members, there is a chance to create a powerful resource of a quality, reliability, accessibility and scope "nowhere before attempted" in this area.
