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! —Suzukaze-c 17:53, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Yulin CantoneseEdit

Hi, I'm wondering where you're getting your data for Yulin Cantonese from. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 07:25, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

@Justinrleung From this paper, which contains some vocabulary: 梁忠东. (2006). 广西玉林话的粤语系属. 方言, 4, 364-373. RcAlex36 (talk) 07:30, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Nice, thanks! — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 07:55, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Doumen-T and Doumen-SEdit

Hi, thanks for your additions to the dialectal synonym modules. I just wanted to make sure you knew what these two locations refer to. Doumen-T refers to Tanka spoken in Shangheng (斗門上橫水上話) and Doumen-S refers to Siyi spoken in Doumen Town (斗門鎮). 广东粤方言概要 confusingly calls Doumen-T 斗门. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 03:44, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

@Justinrleung Seems like I have mixed them up. Thanks for the reminder! RcAlex36 (talk) 03:47, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
No problem! By the way, you might want to take a look at MOD:zh/data/dial and MOD:zh/data/dial-syn. I usually use the second one to make it easier to get all the locations in the usual order. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 03:50, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Creating entriesEdit

Hi RcAlex36, thanks for your edits and new entries! Could I suggest that you try using {{zh-n}} to make new entries - this can help to minimize errors like this. — justin(r)leung (t...) | c=› } 15:37, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

thank youEdit

Many thanks for the entries you've created, especially the chengyus as we are lacking a bit in that department. Here's two lists that you might find helpful as a reference: User:Tooironic/Chengyu list and User:Tooironic/Suyu list. ---> Tooironic (talk) 04:39, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
