Welcome to my user page. I am editing in my using my real name. I enjoy adding missing English language entries to Wiktionary. I like to think I am a generalist. I take the view that Wiktionary should strive to provide a definition for any terms that are in common use, including place name, road names, codes, retronyms etc. I am an inclusionist. I am generally against the use of redirects (in the main space) - in my view each alternative spelling should get its own entry however short.
I have done quite a bit of work on reduplications.
