2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Wiktionary/Custom list for language learner
The survey has concluded. Here are the results!
- Problem: A student may wants to create wordlists to memorize a new language and then organizes the list by themes (animals, plants), functional categories (emotional verbs, action verbs, nouns) or whatsoever. Wiktionaries have the content for language learners but do not provide any tool for this need and people use instead other websites.
- Who would benefit: Students learning a new language, contributors to have a to-do list or a list of beloved words, Wikibooks to have an interface with Wiktionary.
We can imagine options to easily edit the Custom List such as:
- a field to add a word in a category
- an option to delete a word without editing the whole page
- a rapid way to reorder sections and words
This tool may be included in Wiktionary or be apart, in a lighter interface, to share the list created everyone.
- More comments: Initially proposed by Victor Porée in the French Wiktionary and proposed during 2016 Community Wishlist Survey.
- Phabricator tickets: T183108
- Translations: none yet
Thanks Pamputt for this proposal. I changed some aspects, in a way to simplified the proposal. I am still not sure about the better way to proceed to diffuse the result at the end, to make people aware of the tool. But still, I think this have to be developed for Wiktionaries!

- Isn't this sort of what we have Wikiversity for? /Johan (WMF) (talk) 16:22, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
- Wikiversity and Wikibooks are good projects for educational purpose, but they are not tide with Wiktionary, and it is nowadays impossible to create a lesson from scratch starting in Wiktionary. This proposal can result in pages hosted by Wikibooks, it may be interesting, but at first, it have to start from and in Wiktionary to permit the gathering process. It is not very efficient to start a list of, to say, verbs to describe a picture, if you can't explore a dictionary doing so. I am fund of interproject connectivity, so I am definitively in favor of a rapid connection between projects, so your comment is inspiring! Thank you! Noé (talk) 22:43, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
@Pamputt: Vote is over. 13 votes last year, 24 this year, that's good! It is still not in the podium but that's not a major issue. I made a Phabricator ticket to keep this idea somewhere Noé (talk) 07:25, 18 December 2017 (UTC)
