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! Ultimateria (talk) 16:28, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

sábado, sabadete, camisa nueva y polveteEdit

Hola. Acabo de darme de narices con la frase sábado, sabadete, camisa nueva y polvete. Me parece muy curiosa. Puse como traducción "It's Saturday, so I'm gonna get laid", pero me quedé corto. --Otra cuenta105 (talk) 15:51, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

Categories, senseidEdit

Hello. Do you prefer using CAT:Catalan nouns suffixed with -ment, CAT:Catalan words suffixed with -ment (nominal) or CAT:Catalan words suffixed with -ment (noun)? --Per utramque cavernam (talk) 11:30, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

I prefer CAT:Catalan nouns suffixed with -ment, if it's possible. How could I insert articles in it though, I mean, through what template? --Trident90 (Talk) 12:19, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
You got it, it seems! Thanks for taking care of this. --Per utramque cavernam (talk) 12:35, 10 March 2018 (UTC)


Hello again. Could I ask you to add this type of compounds to Category:Catalan verb–noun compounds? It's a pet project of mine. The Spanish cat is much more complete :-) --Per utramque cavernam (talk) 20:17, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes, sure! --Trident90 (talk) 20:19, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. No obligation of course! --Per utramque cavernam (talk) 20:21, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Catalan verbsEdit

Hi there! When you create Catalan verbs, please add them to this page so a bot can create the pages for its forms. Keep up the good work on Catalan entries! Ultimateria (talk) 18:54, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

I was about to ask how to do it, thanks! All those red forms hurt my eyes! :C --Trident90 (talk) 21:42, 07 June 2018 (UTC)

caer una buenaEdit

Hey. Do you think caer una buena is the best name for this phrase? Maybe caerle una buena or caerle una buena a alguien? --XY3999 (talk) 11:50, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
