Is there are rule against it? There are a couple of small benefits:

  1. If, a new L2 is added, no need to add it. Some new editors forget this.
  2. If you copy/paste an entry to another busy page, it makes it easier to format.

What's the downside? I've seen this in one of about pages. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 10:48, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

@Atitarev: There might well be a rule (or not), but I don't feel like looking for it. In any case, the vast majority of entries don't do that, and imo it's better to be consistent. I guess if you want to keep using it I won't object, but I don't think that's a good idea. PUC – 15:25, 29 March 2020 (UTC)


As far as I know, the template 'taxlink' is supposed to be used only when there's no Wiktionary entry for that specific taxon. If one tries to use the template in such case and one clicks 'Show preview', the preview page will display the instructions to this end. --Hekaheka (talk) 18:11, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

It is you!Edit

Bary! Barytonesis, my guru! It is really you. How nice to see you - thanks for this. I always remember your lessons, back in 2018, when you patrolled me: I have been studying since then (Fromkin) and now trying to move to 2nd year curriculum! Truly: I appreciate your effort to teach me, to introduce me to your science, since I was a random ignorant user.
So, it is PUC -At first, I thought from Puck-. Hope you are corona-well. Stay safe!@ ‑‑Sarri.greek  | 23:24, 30 March 2020 (UTC)


This is, apparently, short for mais enfin (when carelessly prononunced?). Should it have an entry, or be mentioned at m'? Equinox 13:44, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

Removals and edit summariesEdit

I would like to request that when you remove something from an entry, you indicate so in the edit summary. Disclaimer: Unlike Wikipedia, Wiktionary does not have any formulated requirements on edit summaries. My request is not based on policy but rather on my common sense, which may not really be common. --Dan Polansky (talk) 11:29, 6 April 2020 (UTC)

@Dan Polansky: Ok, I'll try to take up the habit. PUC – 11:51, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
