The Italian word "raccomandate" is also a noun. Please correct this.

registratoEdit

The Italian word "registrato" is also an adjective. Please correct this.

Even if we could change the Italian language, what makes you think that registrato being an adjective is something we should correct? Oh. Never mind Chuck Entz (talk) 23:21, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
I don’t think it’s a noun at all. Changed to adjective. —Stephen (Talk) 02:42, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Appendix:Cyrillic scriptEdit

For the Adyghe alphabet chart, character position number 36 is duplicated; not the character itself, just the position, i.e. the second line should begin with 37.

For the Tabasaran alphabet chart, character position number 30 has been omitted, i.e. it jumps from 29 to 31 across the two lines.

Thanks. Fixed. —Stephen (Talk) 02:43, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Appendix:Phonological development of Tok PisinEdit

Neat summary, BUT! How do you source 'standard Tok Pisin? This is a very unstandardised language and what standardisation it has received, such as the Mihalic dictionary, is very old in a context of a rapidly changing, creolising language, so tempting as this page is, i'm not sure it's comparisons are valid.

Wiktionary:Per-browser preferencesEdit

This is not a user friendly site. I was looking for a word definition and found (it seems) like everything else. My current state of mind is disappointed. —This unsigned comment was added by 74.143.236.100 (talk) at 03:07, 17 December 2015‎.

Word List Needed: SuggestionEdit

Hi, I am from Argentina and trying to using this resource just for a while, and as I see, it is unordered (at least in the way I would expect it to be) I am working as lexicographer for a morphological dictionary in Spanish, and was searching for new word forms, equivalences, derivatives, meaning, etc. The problem consist that I found no way to get out structured information of the pages and I don't want to have to build a robot to browse them. ¿is there a way to get the words as a list, JSON, CSV, etc. ? It's Just a suggestion! thanks

I do not understand what kind of list you are talking about. I don’t know what you’re looking for. Do you want a list of all English entries? A list of all entries in all languages? A list of English verbs? A list of English synonyms, or derived terms, or finite forms? Or something else? —Stephen (Talk) 01:16, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

μεγάλο όνομαEdit

α εθνικη θελω να σε δω και να σε χαρω. απολλων ολε απολλωναρα ολε

penetrateEdit

I’m curious, has anybody ever suggested that this word is related to ‘penis?’ --66.169.111.94 11:59, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Certainly some people have suggested it, but since it is incorrect, their names were not recorded. —Stephen (Talk) 01:12, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

For every verb.Edit

Please, show the declination verbs window always open. Is easier to read and search the conjugation. Thanks!

Note the header for the table that you are talking about, such as Inflection or Declension, then look at the far left edge of the page under "Visibility" and find the pertinent line that says something like "Show inflection" or "Show declension" and click on it. That will cause that window to be always open for you. —Stephen (Talk) 01:05, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

slingshotEdit

I'm referring an instrument all most every Australian boy had. It is a small forked stick, a V with a handle, a length of rubber is attached to each part of the v then attached to a pouch a stone or some small object like a stone or marble is placed in the pouch. The fork stick is held in one hand by the handle, the pouch is held by thumb and fingers of the other hand. The rubber is streached the pouch released and the missile hopefully strikes the target. (improved sling shot)

I think you've answered your own question. It's called a slingshot (US) or catapult (UK). Smuconlaw (talk) 20:17, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

tuttiEdit

The Italian word "tutti" is also an adjective. Please add this.

cut the musterEdit

I think you have the relationship between "cut the muster" and "cut the mustard" backwards. I'm pretty sure "Cut the muster" came first, originated about the time of the American Civil War, and that "Cut the Mustard" grew out of people mis-hearing the original. Now, through widespread misuse, Cut the Mustard has become the more common phrase.

I don't think anyone really knows, but your suggestion sounds like a folk etymology, invented when the phrase "cut the muster" started being used (as a result of a mis-hearing). If you can find usages of "cut the muster" that pre-date "cut the mustard" (1891 first usage in print), then your suggestion will carry more weight. Dbfirs 09:13, 25 December 2015 (UTC)
Google engram viewer shows nothing for "cut the muster" before 1964, but "cut the mustard" as far back as 1876. SemperBlotto (talk) 09:44, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

AUDIOPRON.DUN'ELP I/LIBRARY,GR

  • "audio pronunciation don't help [?????] library [??????]" 😕 —suzukaze (tc) 10:06, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
"Doesn't help when in the library. Grr!" Equinox 10:27, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
I've been noticing a number of mysterious postings of this sort by anonymous user(s), which consist of clusters of apparently random characters but which might just possibly mean something. Should we try and work out what they are supposed to mean, or just delete them in the hope that the user(s) will be prompted to express themselves more clearly? I'm in favour of the latter. Smuconlaw (talk) 11:24, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
It seems like they used to have an account (User talk:史凡), has difficulty typing, and has a tendency to use insults on users who don't understand what he's typing, resulting in multiple blocks. —suzukaze (tc) 11:37, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
I see, but what should we do? Smuconlaw (talk) 16:16, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
It's a rather obvious troll. (But even if he weren't, if one has a disability that makes it impossible to contribute to Wiktionary, then tough. The project is under no obligation to let itself be held back by having to deal with it, hurting everybody.)
The thing is, he was perfectly capable of writing well-formed and correctly spelled and punctuated sentences when he put his mind to it. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 09:06, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
But the Dutch example sentence isn't standard Dutch. (It sounds like Antwerpian Flemish to me.) Well, as I said, a troll.

pisalisEdit

This is supposedly a late Latin word, supposedly deriving from pensilis.

Gaffiot has no entry. Renard Migrant (talk) 16:16, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

extraterrestriEdit

The Italian word "extraterrestri" is also an adjective. Please add this.

Added. Thanks for the feedback! — Ungoliant (falai) 17:53, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Category:English words prefixed with mono-Edit

Looking at English mono prefix, I noticed that many of the words had been organized incorrectly. Many had been categorized under M even though the words, without the prefix, didn't actually start with M.

That is caused by a bug in the confix template.
{{prefix|a|b|lang=en}} expands to a- +‎ b[[Category:English words prefixed with a-|B]]
{{confix|a|b|lang=en}} expands to a- +‎ -b[[Category:English words prefixed with a-]][[Category:English words suffixed with -b]]
As you can see confix doesn't set the sort key properly.
P.S. Wikimedia's parser is really buggy. Notice how <!----> stops template expansion but doesn't stop categorisation.

suggeritaEdit

The Italian word "suggerito" is also an adjective. Please add this.

extraterrestriEdit

Dear Ungoliant: Thanks for all your support and encouragement.

moonlighterEdit

What is an "agrarian outrage" supposed to be? 73.196.157.132 20:20, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, it means killing landowners. The phrase was used in both the Century Dictionary and Chambers for their definition of moonlighter; I guess we copied it over from there. Perhaps a better definition would be "one of a gang who used violence, especially at night, to promote agrarianism in Ireland during the Land War of the late 19th century". —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 23:23, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
Nice. Thanx. 104.229.139.131 18:57, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

saughtEdit

I was seeking the noun in the past tense for 'seek'. As in 'this is a well saught after vantage point'.

It's spelled sought, as in a well sought-after vantage point. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 23:26, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Should we add Proto-Mayan reconstructed words in the Appendix? I have a source for it.Qwed117 (talk) 01:11, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Word of the day: crafternoonEdit

I sincerely doubt that "crafternoon" is a legitimate word. Slang like this is for Urban Dictionary, NOT Wikipedia.

#raisethestandards

Hashtags are for Twitter, not wikis. (And this isn't Wikipedia...) Equinox 16:27, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Nevertheless, I do wish WOTDs would be sufficiently cited to pass RFV if were to come to that (at least 3 cites from independent sources spanning more than a year). —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 16:41, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
I've been updating the WOTDs based on the nominations that are made by other editors. Should I automatically exclude those that do not have citations? If this is to be a new criterion, should this be discussed at the Beer Parlour first? Smuconlaw (talk) 17:24, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Given the way things work around here, we'd probably have to vote on it. At this point, I was merely airing my personal druthers. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 17:47, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Feel free to start a discussion, if you wish! Smuconlaw (talk) 19:03, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
One could argue that the visibility given to WotD at least encourages people to expand and improve it. I don't know whether that's true! Equinox 19:05, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Well, it's worked for me. I've added quotations and made other changes to WOTD nominees. Smuconlaw (talk) 19:19, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Word of the day/January 4Edit

The foreign word of the day, ótico in Portuguese (Pg), means otic in English (Eng). The word óptico in Pg means optic in Eng. Thanks/Obrigado.

Thanks. ótico can mean both. —Stephen (Talk) 18:53, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
For the meaning "optic", isn't ótico the Brazilian spelling and óptico the European spelling? User:Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV? User:Daniel Carrero? —This unsigned comment was added by Angr (talkcontribs).
Both forms are used in Brazil, whereas only ótico is used in standard European Portuguese. — Ungoliant (falai) 19:07, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

We are pleased that you read it with feeling. It is the least that you could do. Keep up the good work. —Stephen (Talk) 18:50, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Preferences/V2Edit

Would be nice to have a way to disable auto-hiding of Latin inflection tables other than disabling JS entirely.

Just note the heading for the inflection table that you are interested in (such as Inflection), then look in the left-hand edge of the page for the phrase Show Inflection. After that, your inflection tables should always show. —Stephen (Talk) 18:02, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
@Stephen G. Brown: This is spotty at best. I have no clue how many times I have clicked on "Show X" in the sidebar. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:31, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
It occasionally reset (related to your login, which is valid only for a certain number of days), and it is also affected by the edit level (that is, whether the header is ===Inflection=== or ====Inflection====). So you should not be bothered too much with it. Maybe twice a month per table header. Besides, there are no other options. —Stephen (Talk) 20:00, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
@Stephen G. Brown: It happens much more frequently than that and I'm sure that someone smarter than me could make this a preference or gadget. It's a small thing but persistent. —Justin (koavf)TCM 05:37, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Appendix:Proto-Indo-European/kʷisEdit

It is not very clear what the difference between a "pronoun" and a "determiner" is. So what is the difference between kwis and kwos ?

A pronoun takes the place of a noun, as in "he knows what he wants." (it, the thing)
A determiner is what we used to call an adjective, as in "what shirt are you going to wear?" (which shirt, specific shirt)
kʷis is a pronoun, as in "he knows kʷis he wants." kʷos is a determiner, as in "kʷos shirt are you going to wear?" —Stephen (Talk) 12:44, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

championshipEdit

I thought that this was pronounced /t͡ʃeəmpiənt͡ʃɪp/. Is it supposed to be /t͡ʃeəmpiənʃɪp/? --75.139.255.123 18:36, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

At the phonemic level, definitely. At the phonetic level it may surface as [...iəntʃɪp] in some dialects of English, presumably largely the same ones in which prince is a homophone of prints. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 21:20, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
Is the /eə/ in the anon’s transcription dialectal? — Ungoliant (falai) 00:59, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes; see ae-tensing. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 16:44, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
... and, of course, here in northern England it's just /ˈtʃampɪənʃɪp/. Dbfirs 14:54, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

monarchyEdit

Shouldn't "monarchy" be included in the list of English words ending in (or with suffix) -archy?

Thanks, I've added the word to that category. Smuconlaw (talk) 19:02, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
Well it's not mono suffixed with -archy though, is it? It's borrowed a single united from Ancient Greek (via Old French and Latin where the same applies, not mono or any other word suffixed with -archie or -archia). Renard Migrant (talk) 22:36, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Word of the day: come out of the woodworkEdit

cloud nineEdit

I would like to respond to a possible origin of the phrase 'on Cloud Nine' - As a child in UK early-mid 1940's, my parents often commented 'our daughter is always on Cloud Nine and such a dreamer' - like many children I experienced most childhood diseases during my first 7-8 years and was given numerous pills and medicines whose major components were opium and laudanum (until the mid 1950s when it was discovered the ingredients encouraged bizarre behaviour to include 'hyperactivity.

Both my parents lived NW Frontier, in the days of the British Raj and would have witnessed opium smoking by the local population and even perhaps those in the army, stationed in and around the Khyber Pass - hence would have associated this activity with being 'on Cloud Nine' - thus the phrase would have been much earlier used than currently annotated as being introduced in the 1950s-1960s.

History does confirm most 'Elixirs' of Life contained high percentage amounts of opium, laudanum and other various herbs and tinctures made from 'magic mushrooms' etc - The Apothecary dispensed medications long before pharmaceutical companies took over the manufacture of medicines due to the medical profession's concern with overuse which caused many people to immerse themselves with the habit of Apothecary visits to assuage their hard toil, aching bodies general ill health and in many cases a poor quality of life.

Travelling Medicants of the 17th, 18th and 19th century carried many 'Elixirs of Life' particularly on major trade routes and thus introduced the possibility those who received/purchased them would have developed a predilection for the Elixirs of Life which provided relief and joy from very challenging circumstances.

Smoking could explain "cloud", but what about "nine"? Equinox 22:21, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

actuosityEdit

Perhaps I misunderstand the request for quote. Søren Kierkegaard's Journals and Papers, Vol. 4, page 296, Copyright © 1975 by Howard V. Hong

As soon as the religious leaves the existential present, where it is sheer actuosity, it immediately becomes milder. The process of religion's becoming milder and thereby less true is directly recognizable by its becoming a doctrine. As soon as it becomes doctrine, the religious does not have absolute urgency.* In Christ the religious is completely present tense; in Paul it is already on the way to becoming doctrine. One can imagine the rest! And with the tendency to become essentially a matter of doctrine, the complete departure from the religious begins, and this trend has been kept up for God knows how many centuries. [In margin] * Note. There comes to be more and more delay before I get around to doing it, and finally (when the religious has become doctrine completely) it all becomes total delay.
