 ◄ Back to Wiktionary  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.
  • Proposed solution: Creating a Javascript or a core feature in MediaWiki to record a page into a personal space with an option for subcategorisation that include the link directly under a subsection (i.e. pick a word and add it to verb, colors, animals, new category section in the Custom list page).
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.

Discussion[edit]

  • 🚩 Agree. I have desired something like this for a while, a great idea.Sigehelmus (talk) 00:42, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Comment: fairly sure mention was made in the previous years to support exporting in structured format, for example for Anki de, fr, zh, to allow shared lists. - Amgine 21:19, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Could be also used by Wikiversities. Otourly (talk) 10:03, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Support Support This would be a very useful toolk. The proposition make clear the general purpose, but it also immediately poped more specific use cases like events aimaing at helping migrants to learn French where our current Wiktionnary tooling is unsiffisent to generate quickly useful material. @Sophiedidacressources: might be especially interested in this proposal. --Psychoslave (talk) 03:46, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
