Wiktionary:Requested entries (Chinese)

Have an entry request? Add it to the list – but please:

  • Consider creating a citations page with your evidence that the word exists instead of simply listing it here
  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.
  • Check the Wiktionary:Criteria for inclusion if you are unsure if it belongs in the dictionary.
  • If the entry already exists, but seems incomplete or incorrect, do not add it here; add a request template to the entry itself to ask someone to fix the problem, e.g. {{rfp}} or {{rfe}} for pronunciation or etymology respectively.
    — Note also that such requests, like the information requested, belong on the base form of a word, not on inflected forms.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • For words which are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in Chinese script.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them – it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

  • Accelerated entry creation template:
    {{zh-new}} (should be used with care)

  • Please also give a reference of where you see the word (if possible), so that wrong phrase-breaking can be picked out and the correct phrase can be proposed instead. Do not request sum of parts entries or entries unlikely to meet WT:CFI#Attestation rules.
  • Please do not request additional senses or parts of speech or verification of existing senses here (consider WT:RT for that). This page is only used for requesting missing Chinese entries (red links or a existing entries but in a different language, e.g. Japanese) — new entries (Japanese, Korean or Vietnamese entries may exist prior to the request; these entries are marked with asterisks).

    @AntisocialRyan: Does this really count as English? Is it generally attached to an English language message? Or mostly Chinese? Has it become Translingual? And how would we cite it? (See RFV for crab emoji.) I see people talking about it, but uses are absent from the corner of the Internet I inhabit. Is it also used on WeChat? Vox Sciurorum (talk) 10:16, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
    @Vox Sciurorum: My bad, I definitely didn't think the language through. It's definitely just Chinese.
