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! --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 22:06, 24 March 2016 (UTC)


Det är roligt att se att det arbetas med de svenska orden. Du har (åtminstone med det här användarnamnet) snart varit igång i ett år på svenska och engelska Wiktionary. Tyvärr är det en rätt ensam sysselsättning. Jag var rätt aktiv här tidigare, men numera mest på ryska Wiktionary. Så mycket samarbete blir det ju inte tal om. --LA2 (talk) 19:55, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Så ryska wiktionary minsann! Det var lite otippat må jag säga. Och jaa jag försöker väl lägga till de ord jag stöter på och som inte redan finns. Någpt jag stör mig på är att de inte har lagt till "länka-b" här på engelska wiktionary än, så som vi har på den svenska versionen. Det underlättar ju något enormt när man ska lägga till böjningsformer.Jonteemil (talk) 20:44, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Svenska Wiktionary känns mer som en lekstuga. Sällan anges källor. Ofta hittar man ord med fel böjningsmönster eller ofullständiga förklaringar. De aktiva och tongivande användarna där tycks anse att det inte är så viktigt. På engelska, danska och ryska Wiktionary har jag varit rätt angelägen om att använda källmallarna {{R:SAOL}} och {{R:SAOB online}}. --LA2 (talk) 10:27, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Se till att reformera sidan då vet jag! Nån måste ju göra't!:) Jonteemil (talk) 15:33, 8 September 2016 (UTC)


Is this a typo for vänsterhand? —CodeCat 22:17, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes! Sorry.Jonteemil (talk) 22:18, 17 January 2017 (UTC)


Hi ! Saw you edits to skuren. If this is truly an adjective, and not a verb form, then the definition needs to be updated as well, please. Leasnam (talk) 21:27, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

@Leasnam: See my comment on Category talk: Swedish past participles.Jonteemil (talk) 21:28, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
@Leasnam: And by the way, a form of a verb doesn't necessarily have to be a verb itself. See for example the adjectives that come from English verbs: eating, shot, beaten, caught, fished. All English past participles can be both adjectives and verbs. I have eaten the fish (verb) - The fish is eaten (adjective (since "eaten" explains the fish)). The same applies on Swedish verbs altough we have supine that sometimes differs from the past participle which in Swedish always is the adjective example. Since supine and past participle always is the same in English supine isn't spoken about. But in theory it exists.Jonteemil (talk) 22:26, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Checking Swedish stuffEdit

Hi! Thanks for the Swedish entries! A small favour to ask. Could you check some of the entries in Category:Tbot entries (Swedish)? Many lack basic information, and some could be wrong. By the way, if you do manage to fix some, or if the entry is fine, you could remove the "Tbot tag". Takk! --Pickyevent (talk) 21:38, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

@Pickyevent Of course, I'd also see someone answering my discussion pages at: Category talk:Old Norse language and Talk:ᚦᚢᚱ.Jonteemil (talk) 22:30, 26 September 2017 (UTC) Ps. Takk is Norwegian, Faroese and Icelandic, in Swedish it's tack.
For those questions, maybe WT:TR is the best place to get answers. Users rarely read individual Discussion pages, AFAICT. --P5Nd2 (talk) 10:27, 20 October 2017 (UTC)
  • I've whittled that category down to just seven entries. The remaining ones are trickier. --Gente como tú (talk) 15:41, 22 December 2017 (UTC)


Hello. May I ask you to stop using {{etyl}}? It's been deprecated and replaced by {{der}}. Thank you! --Barytonesis (talk) 10:44, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

It's just that if I don't know if {{inh}} or {{der}} should be used I use to use {{etyl}}. But I guess that {{etyl}} + {{m}} = {{der}}.Jonteemil (talk) 11:10, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
{{der}} is the general-purpose template, so you can use it whenever you're not sure, yes. Thanks again :-) --Barytonesis (talk) 11:30, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Ok. Should {{inh}} be used for all Swedish words that derive form Old Swedish? Even if Old Swedish didn't inherit the word/term?Jonteemil (talk) 13:12, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

Hi. What matters is the closest step: if a Swedish word is directly descended (through regular sound laws) from an Old Swedish word, then it's said to be "inherited" from that Old Swedish word; whether the Old Swedish term itself was borrowed from, say, Latin, or inherited from Proto-Germanic, doesn't have any bearing on the relationship between the Swedish word and the Old Swedish word. --Barytonesis (talk) 14:58, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
Ok, thanks!Jonteemil (talk) 15:38, 22 October 2017 (UTC)


Is there a good reason to suppose that this was formed in Proto-Germanic instead of being a Norse formation? We don't typically have entries for Proto-Germanic terms with a single direct descendant, unless it is clear that descendant cannot have been anything other than an inheritance, which I'm not sure is the case here. — Mnemosientje (t · c) 15:36, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

@Mnemosientje: You’re right. You can delete Reconstruction:Proto-Germanic/slōgiþō, I’ve created slœgð instead.Jonteemil (talk) 16:19, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
Alright, done so — Mnemosientje (t · c) 16:42, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Heads upEdit

Hjälp med svenska översättningarEdit

Hej. Jag undrar om du skulle vilja hjälpa med att översatta till svenska på ord som redan har en översättning på norska eller danska?

Ofta är det lätt att bara kopiera och anpassa en översättning från ett av dem andra språk eller skippa ord man inte snabbt kommer på.

Jag har skrivit två verktyg för att underlätta och tagit fram en lista över ord.

Är du intresserad?--So9q (talk) 02:52, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

@So9q Hej!
Bra initiativ, men tillfället är jag relativt inaktiv på Wiktionary och känner att jag gärna är det framöver också. Får jag ett sug att åter börja redigera på Wiktionary så hör jag av mig. Lycka till!Jonteemil (talk) 06:10, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
