User talk:Gougnafier



Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page 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.
  • Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

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.

Are you from Quebec? If you could put that on your user page it would be helpful. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:10, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

monter - ride a horse?Edit

Really? Obviously it means to mount a horse, but to ride it? Mglovesfun (talk) 22:18, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

It means to mount, and by extension, to ride. See monter in the TILF, sense II.A.2 Gougnafier 22:29, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

links with #enEdit

Please note this diff. Links with #en don't work.

Overall, I like your editing skills. You might make the whitelist in record time! :) —Internoob (DiscCont) 22:25, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Nice, thanks Gougnafier 22:23, 7 September 2010 (UTC)


I have a little project going to create lots and lots of French adverbs. If you want to join in, do, if not, errr, don't. Thanks, Mglovesfun (talk) 17:21, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

I'll do some, but the job is huge, especially since translation tables are missing from most of their English counterparts. Gougnafier 19:35, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
You can do as much or as little as you like. You can also remove anything you do from that list - I'm not sensitive about my user page. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:39, 10 September 2010 (UTC)


Hi Gougnafier, thanks for reviewing my entries. I always appreciate a coup de main from a native speaker. --Felonia 11:21, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
