Hi. Please don't put {{wikipedia}} in an entry if Wikipedia has no such article. That just creates a misleading dead link. Equinox 16:40, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't realize I did. Jawitkien (talk) 16:41, 29 November 2016 (UTC)


Thanks for your additions. Here's some stuff that might help with the formatting etc. Equinox 20:38, 1 November 2017 (UTC)


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!

Lojban pronunciationsEdit

I wonder the title in Wiktionary for the Pronunciation should be one of these "loan words" fu'ivla
  1. vlaba'u
    (vla=valsi=word) + (ba'u=bacru=x1 utters verbally/says/phonates/speaks [vocally makes sound] x2)
  2. or uenba'u
    (uen=uenzi=x1 is an utterance or text about x2) + (ba'u=bacru=x1 utters verbally/says/phonates/speaks [vocally makes sound] x2)

Support:'u says x1=b1 pronounces x3=v1 as x2=b2. says x1 is an utterance or text about x2

Lojban notationsEdit

When you combine two words such as mli+bau this is combining milxe & bacru.
(mli is rafsi of milxe)
(bau is rafsi of bacru)
but milxe has an x1 and an x2  
while bacru has a different x1 and x2
but the definition for milxe says:
x1=m1=b1 whispers/mumbles/murmurs/coos utterance x2=b2;
x1=m1=b1 speaks softly.

This is meaning that the x1 for mlibau is the x1 for milxe and the x1 for bacru is also the x1 for mlibau.
The also is meaning the x2 for mlibau is the x2 for bacru and the x2 for milxe is ignored/dropped.
