"ux" usage example glossEdit

Hi. My understanding is that the ux gloss is intended for (made-up) usage examples, and not real-world citations like you flagged at maat and Englishman. When I see ux there, I remove it. Do you know different? Equinox 14:08, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Okay, I didn't know that. I've went back and fixed them; my bad. Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 14:12, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Bit more nagging: it's better not to use the Abbreviation or Initialism headers any more, because we obsoleted those (because they aren't really a part of speech). So if you create an entry like NNP it's better to use the natural part of speech (proper noun in that case) and then define it with the abbreviation or initialism on the definition line. Ahh you'll pick it up :D Thanks Equinox 15:00, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for the tip. I think I get what you're saying; I'm a bit new here so you'll have to bear with me. Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 15:01, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Small issueEdit

See diff. Entries in different languages on the same page are separated by a dividing line. See WT:Entry layout for more info. — Mnemosientje (t · c) 14:09, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

My bad; thanks for letting me know. Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 14:35, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

template af-nounEdit

It may be a little counter-intuitive, but shortcut plurals are always entered without a hyphen, so just {{af-noun|e}} or {{af-noun|s}}. I don't think there are shortcuts that include elided consonants as in -te. ←₰-→ Lingo Bingo Dingo (talk) 08:53, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Gotcha. Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 22:17, 10 July 2019 (UTC)


Hi, please read WT:NORM, in particular regarding the spacing between lines and between other things. You always pack things tightly but that's not how Wiktionary is conventionally formatted. —Rua (mew) 12:02, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

My apologies; that's just how I'm used to doing things on other Wikis. Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 12:03, 3 November 2018 (UTC)


Was there any particular reason for replacing the existing image with one of Trudeau? I won't delete it, but adding images of politicians to fairly unrelated entries tend to cause complaints somewhere down the line. ←₰-→ Lingo Bingo Dingo (talk)


Hello. What do you mean by “The Korean ethnicity, race, or nation”? As far as I know it refers only to the Republic of Korea. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 05:38, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi, the cite is here (CTRL+F for Taehan minguk). Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 11:41, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Oh you are misreading the phrase. In that case 대한민국 means “Korea”, not just South Korea. —
I see then. Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 13:38, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
