Hi, and welcome to Wiktionary. I'm glad you are attempting to contribute to our lexicon of idioms, which is quite needed here, but there have been quite a few issues with your edits so far that I had to fix. I will point out some of these here:
- A phrase like darn it is not a noun and should not be listed as such; I wouldn't say for example "I have had two darn its today." That phrase in particular is an interjection, and other phrases are generally marked as "Phrase". not all heroes wear capes is also not a noun, but should be listed as a proverb.
- You should not define a verb as a noun. You listed flutter tongue as a verb, but gave it a noun's definition: "A technique which ...", which should have been "To use a technique which ...", for example.
- Please take some time to read Appendix:English parts of speech to learn more about parts of speech in English.
Beyond these content issues, I will give you our welcome template below, as the links below will help you understand the community, and entry layout.
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.
We don't use the part of speech "idiom" at Wiktionary; please use "verb", "adjective", "noun", or "phrase", for example. Please read WT:ELE to learn about the only headers we allow in entries, and choose wisely your pick. PseudoSkull (talk) 09:42, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
