Welcome Edit

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 on Wiktionary's page formatting; all entries must conform to it. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing same-language entry, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Check out Language considerations to find out more about how to edit for a particular language.
  • Our Criteria for Inclusion (CFI) defines exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary; 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.
  • If you have any questions, bring them to Wiktionary:Information desk or ask me on my talk page.
  • Whenever commenting on any discussion page, please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) which automatically produces your username and timestamp.
  • You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage to indicate your self-assessed knowledge of languages.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary! --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 10:03, 18 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

inburgeren Edit

But then what is burgeren? —Rua (mew) 20:32, 8 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It does not exist. Do you have any suggestions how the verb should be described? It's not a confix of in-+burger+-en. Because 'in' is not a prefix in this case.--DerRudymeister (talk) 20:42, 8 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

in +‎ burger +‎ -en? —Rua (mew) 13:05, 9 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

neder- Edit

I think your recent edits to Nederturk, nederpop, nederjazz and nederwiet are incorrect, this isn't the directional neder but a prefix neder- with the meaning "Dutch (adj.)". This meaning doesn't occur for the stand-alone term, compare kunst- (artificial) and kanker-. ←₰-→ Lingo Bingo Dingo (talk) 09:27, 11 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes you're right about that. I will undo those edits. Thanks! --DerRudymeister (talk) 14:14, 11 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

compound vs. affix templates Edit

Thanks for your recent updates of etymologies with suffixes. But here's a reminder that {{compound}} does not interpret affixes like -en correctly, you will need {{af}} or {{affix}} for that. ←₰-→ Lingo Bingo Dingo (talk) 10:47, 25 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the message. It seems I forgot about that, good that you point this out. I will try to edit the entries that contain the mistake, but if you encounter more feel free to edit those. --DerRudymeister (talk) 11:04, 25 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

-ierf, -ierp Edit

The i is short in these combinations, so they were already listed at Rhymes:Dutch/i-. You may want to merge your additions into there. —Rua (mew) 12:30, 14 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the message, I undid the edits for those entries and put them in the right rhyming categories. That means we're still left with four empty rhyming pages, should these be marked for a merger or deletion? Or can you simply remove them with some moderator magic? --DerRudymeister (talk) 13:10, 14 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've deleted the pages now. —Rua (mew) 13:51, 14 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for adding sources! Edit

DerRudymeister, thanks so much for going around adding sources to existing Proto-Germanic entries. I really appreciate that. Godspeed! --{{victar|talk}} 17:10, 1 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Victar, good to hear that it's appreciated! Most of the PGM reconstructions on the wiki can be found the etymogical dictionaries by Kroonen and Orel. I think it's worth the effort to add these references. I'm mostly focusing on verbs for the time being.--DerRudymeister (talk) 14:59, 2 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks again. FYI, in {{R:gem:EDPG}}, |1= = |head=, |2= = |page=, and |3= or |passage=, so you can just do {{R:gem:EDPG|*hurjan-|259|*harmjan-}}. --{{victar|talk}} 16:31, 5 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

*-jan Edit

Hey DerRudymeister, can you please add |id= to {{af|gmw-pro|*-jan}}? So either {{af|gmw-pro|*-jan|id=denominative}} or {{af|gmw-pro|*-jan|id=factitive}}. Thanks. --{{victar|talk}} 00:41, 13 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
