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.

Thank you a lot... edit

...for your recent work on Japanese, especially kanji. {{ja-kanji forms-IVS}} has been really helpful! — Fytcha T | L | C 〉 14:08, 25 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A Reminder for an Expansion edit

How could the entry be updated? (By the way, check this out.)

Thanks for reading. Apisite (talk) 10:01, 26 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I expanded and created 向三軒両隣. Lugria (talk) 03:02, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request edit

Hello, I'm in the process of cleaning up entries with derived term subpages by reducing their Lua memory usage, and I've noticed that the Japanese compound section on uses {{ja-l}}, which uses considerably more memory when compared to {{ja-r/args}}. Would you mind filling in the readings and converting that section to {{ja-r}}? Thanks in advance. – Wpi31 (talk) 16:43, 21 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Wpi31: Done. Also I moved compounds with kuchi to "Derived terms" section of reading kuchi. Lugriaルグリア [会話貢献] 22:30, 21 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

讖緯 edit

Hi. This was defined as Chenwei, but there is no Wikipedia article for that! What (or who???) is Chenwei? Overthesnowmelt (talk) 21:42, 20 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I improved the definition because it was different from the Chinese one. These are references.
大辞林 (Daijirin):


An art of divining the future.

大辞泉 (Daijisen):


An art of predicting whether the future would be good or bad. Or a book about it.
