Welcome MessageEdit


Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Again, welcome! --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 19:41, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Urdu NounsEdit

If the noun کلیسیا is masculine, add the letter "m" to the parameter "|g="; if the noun is feminine, add the letter "f". --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 19:51, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

The noun sounded feminine to me. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 20:16, 18 December 2017 (UTC)
میرے خیال سے یہ لفظ feminine ہے. ہندی میں feminine ہوتی ہے.‎ (Sorry, I don't know the Urdu word for "feminine", is it تانيث(tānīs)?) —AryamanA (मुझसे बात करेंयोगदान) 00:53, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
Don't be afraid to look up any English words, that you're unfamiliar with, such as feminine which means Arabic مُؤَنَّث(muʾannaṯ) in the sense of grammar. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 02:36, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
Oh wait, wrong user. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 02:37, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
You are right (for hindi) @Aryamanarora but it is masculine (مذکر) in urdu. Thanks.BukhariSaeed (talk) 02:44, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me. You have to add the transliteration using |tr= (e.g. at مذکر(muzakkar) that I just made). Perhaps we could add support for vowel markings eventually. —AryamanA (मुझसे बात करेंयोगदान) 23:52, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

And please don't use |pl=, that can go in the declension tables. —AryamanA (मुझसे बात करेंयोगदान) 23:53, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Hello. Thank you for your edit but Urdu needs its own section on the page. Kaixinguo~enwiktionary (talk) 16:03, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Urdu templatesEdit


Urdu terms need to use Urdu templates, then they are categorised correctly. BTW, there is no second plural or plural transliterations in the Urdu templates. Please note my edit in diff. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 11:31, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Oh, thanks for correction.BukhariSaeed (talk) 11:37, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

Stop use {{etyl}}Edit

It is deprecated. Use {{der}}, {{bor}}, {{inh}}. It is less writing, more information, and looks better. Palaestrator verborum sis loquier 🗣 14:42, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

دعای ربانیEdit

Hello, I am truly sorry if you saw my original edit at دعای ربانی, it was a genuine mistake caused by copying and pasting. I would never write something like that. Many apologies if you did see it. Kaixinguo~enwiktionary (talk) 17:44, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Urdu transliterationEdit


Thank you for your Urdu contributions. Perhaps you should consider a more consistent and standard transliteration? WT:UR TR is a good start but it may need tweaking. E.g. you have transliterated صلیب‎ as "alīb" but the use of "" may not be justified, since it's just a regular "s". Regular previous contributors used a transliteration very similar to Hindi. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 22:09, 13 January 2018 (UTC)


Thanks for your Urdu additions! When you can, please be sure to use the hi= parameter to link to the Devanagari spelling of a word (and the Hindi entries should link to the Urdu spelling as well). See پادری for an example. Cheers! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 04:56, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
