# Wiktionary:Word of the day/Nominations

This page is for nominating future Word of the Day entries. The philosophy behind our WOTD feature is similar to that of Wikipedia’s featured articles. The main goals are:

- to highlight the best of Wiktionary’s content by featuring it on the Main Page,
- to nurture people’s natural interest in unusual words and phrases
- to help readers improve their vocabulary.

## What to nominateEdit

Any interesting English word or phrase that appears in Wiktionary may be nominated for WOTD, including both rare and exotic terms and terms that are used in everyday conversation.

### VarietyEdit

Before nominating a word, you might want to look through our index of past Words of the Day and at the word’s page itself to make sure it (or a variation of it) hasn’t already been featured.

Also keep in mind that featured words are chosen to reflect a variety of:

**parts of speech**— Nouns, verbs and adjectives should appear more or less equally, but we also need good adverbs, idioms, set phrases and the like.**languages of origin**— Many English words derive ultimately from Latin or Greek precursors, but English has borrowed from, and styled itself after, many other languages, so try to mix it up a bit.**initial letters**— Not all interesting words start with*J*,*K*,*Q*or*Z*.

## What not to nominateEdit

These are in addition to the other warnings already mentioned above.

**No “redlinks” (missing pages)**— If a word is not yet in Wiktionary, it belongs at Wiktionary:Requested entries, not here. (Better yet, why not create the entry yourself?)**No offensive words**— Please avoid profanity. A nominated word should not offend the average person, nor should it be something you would be embarrassed to use in front of your boss or your grandmother (or your boss’s grandmother, for that matter). Wiktionary defines profane words in part so people know*not*to use them in polite company. WOTD nominations, on the other hand, should be words that people*can*safely use in everyday speech. Note also that many parents and schools automatically filter out pages that include certain offensive words, so featuring such a word on the Main Page would restrict access to Wiktionary itself.**Avoid abbreviations**— Abbreviations, initialisms, acronyms, symbols, and the like are unlikely to be selected without extremely convincing reasons. In other words, don’t nominate*WYSIWYG*,*dpi*, or ☿. Symbols in particular cause problems for readers who lack the required fonts, and are therefore unlikely to be featured.**Avoid proper nouns**— Names of specific people, places, or entities are better suited to featuring in an encyclopedia. Such words rarely have interesting definitions or translations.**Stick to English**— The featured word is an English term because this is the English Wiktionary. For foreign words and phrases see the Foreign Word of the Day.**No previous selections**— We want to feature new selections, not the same selections over and over. Please check the list of previous Words of the Day, to be certain it has not been selected previously. In addition, you should see a little “previous WOTD” box in the top right-hand corner of any such entries.**Avoid other WOTDs**— We want to feature words that haven’t been WOTDs for other dictionaries, partly to highlight unique terms that make Wiktionary so special, partly to avoid complaints (by preventing the possibility entirely) that WOTDs were “stolen” from other dictionaries.**Avoid purely obsolete words**– Words whose definitions are only obsolete, archaic or similar should be avoided.

## Updating guideEdit

If you are familiar with using wikitext, please help update future Words of the Day! Do consider a *quid pro quo* – promoting one or two older nominations as Words of the Day for each new nomination that you make. Click on the “Expand” link below for a detailed guide on how to do this.

## How to nominateEdit

Follow the **Nominate a new word** link below and add your word(s) to the top of the list. Please link your word to our page for it by typing **{{wotd-nominee|EXAMPLE_WORD}}** (be sure to get the capitalization right, and replace “EXAMPLE_WORD” with the word that you want to nominate). You might want to include a concise reason or justification for the nomination. A definition is not necessary since our page for the word should already contain a good definition.

In case there are questions about your word(s), it is imperative that you sign your nomination by adding four tildes (**~~~~**) at the end. (Although it is not required, you can quickly register for free if you don’t already have a username.)

## Latest nominationsEdit

So that those setting the Word of the Day for future days may know what has already been done, anyone doing so should here indicate the last date for which a Word of the Day was set, or the first for which it wasn’t, and any relevant notes.

For a guide on how to set Words of the Day, see the “Updating guide” section above. You may also find these personal comments by EncycloPetey and -sche useful *(click on the links)*.

Words have been set for the following dates:

Entries are in *reverse chronological order*, by date of nomination. **Please add your word or words to the TOP of the list below and remember to sign each new entry by typing four tildes** (

**~~~~**)
