Subject Wiktionary[edit]

Wiktionary is one great project. The wiktionary platform is very useful for subject dictionaries too. I am preparing a Quran Dictionary that will contain all Quran terms in all languages. Until a subject dictionary wiktionary project is approved, I am considering hosting one privately. Is the wiktionary software available for private hosting? --Soubanikhaled (talk) 15:08, 24 July 2016 (UTC)Reply

One wiktionary[edit]

What if there are not hundreds of wiktionarys but a big one. For example: for the german word "bier", we find entries in 30 different wiktionarys. and I asked myself: Wouldn't it be easier to have one, where all "languages" submit their words? Please answer. -- 11:46, 27 November 2009 (UTC)Reply

Wikidiccionary in language Muisca[edit]

Hello everyone:

I am not a native speaker of English, so I apologize. I would propose creating a dictionary of language "Muisca" (Muisk kubun). This was the native language of the people Muisca, which dwelt the land of Cundinamarca and Boyacá in Colombia. Actual language "Muisca" is in the process of reconstruction and this would be a good tool for us all. The page could be I await your responses. Thank you very much. Sincerely Diego F. Gómez.

Proposals for new language versions should be requested at Requests for new languages, but dead languages are unfortunately not allowed. SPQRobin 17:33, 15 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

How does one go about adding a New language to this Wiktionary?[edit]

I want to see the Cebuano language also called Cebuano Visaya or just Visaya do the dictionary. Please help. I have different versions of dictionaries for this language and I would be happy to help get this language started. 04:10, 3 January 2010 (UTC)Reply

I think visaya, in Myanmar language and Par-Li,are same ,vi=wi,sa= za, ra= ya ,myanmar(burmese)write as that = ဝိ ဇ ယ။ or ဝိ စာ ရ။ Cherry Ayemin (talk) 23:46, 5 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Sinhalese -> Sinhala - The correct word[edit]

It seems the word Sinhala is used as "Sinhalese" here. I think I made the correction at the wrong place. Where should I make the real correction? --Lee 16:58, 14 February 2011 (UTC)Reply

Name of Sindhi language[edit]

The name of Sindhi language in the Local Name column must only be written in the LOCAL name as written in SINDH, as سنڌي. It is unfortunate that despite repeatedly pointing out, the name of Sindhi language still appears in a non-Sindhi language and script. It is only Sindhi language, whose LOCAL name appears in Three forms. Only سنڌي should be kept and other two be removed please.

Updates required[edit]

It conflicts with the table itself, which makes it hard to read the last three colums. Can't we do something to prevent that? --OosWesThoesBes 11:21, 22 September 2011 (UTC)Reply

pali wiktionary[edit]


Shouldn't someone add some wikidata use case for Wiktionary? --Nemo 22:05, 5 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

Which language is "Kurdish" here?[edit]

There are at least three distinct languages comprised under the name "Kurdish", which ISO 639-3 considers a macrolanguage (Ethnologue), and between them they use three different alphabets: Arabic, Latin, and Cyrillic.

The "Kurdish" Wiktionary is written in the Latin Kurmancî script (including the letters "ç" and "ş", unlike the newer Yekgirtú script). So it is probably Northern Kurdish, which is written with all three alphabets, rather than Southern or Central Kurdish, which both use Arabic writing, according to Ethnologue (although WP says that some speakers of Central, aka Soraní, also use Latin writing).

But which is it actually? This should be made explicit. As it is, it's like referring to "Galicia" without saying whether you mean Galicia in Spain, Galicia in Eastern Europe, or Galicia in the Philippines. --Thnidu (talk) 00:55, 1 September 2012 (UTC)Reply

Edited to add: It's not Central Kurdish, because that has a Wiktionary of its own under the name "Sorani", with the language code ckb (Ethnologue, ISO 639-3). Which makes me guess that it's not Southern Kurdish (kmr) either, strengthening the case for Northern Kurdish aka Kurmanji. Please, label it. --Thnidu (talk) 02:49, 5 September 2012 (UTC)Reply

Where is Punjabi Wiktionary?[edit]

I couldnt see Punjabi Wiktionary [2] in this list. --Khalid Mahmood (talk) 17:29, 5 October 2012 (UTC)Reply

Great point. It only lists pa which is Panjabi, but not pnb, Western Punjabi (which is a much larger wiktionary!) SJ talk  18:52, 6 October 2012 (UTC)Reply
I am requesting again that W.Punjabi Wiktionary [3] is missing from the list.--Khalid Mahmood (talk) 06:41, 2 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

Oh, I see, thanks! Now I wonder why wikt Spanish is not part of the upper circle, since it now has more articles than several of the languages in that circle. Perhaps it needs to wait a bit longer? --Edgefield (talk) 04:58, 18 November 2013 (UTC)Reply

Glitch in Scottish Gaelic Admin stat[edit]

Hi. As far as I know, there are no (0) admins on the gd:Wiktionary, but this table states that there is one. Could you please fix the bug? Thanks in advance. Kibi78704 (talk) 16:48, 17 March 2015 (UTC)Reply

@Kibi78704: Done. It was not a bug; that table needs to be updated manually. Regards --Nastoshka (talk) 19:46, 17 March 2015 (UTC)Reply
Thank you! ...but it still shows "1" instead of "0". The only reason I/we care is that we were hoping to acquire an admin at some point, and thought that if this table showed that we have one, well... Kibi78704 (talk) 05:37, 18 March 2015 (UTC)Reply
@Kibi78704: The number "1" in admin's column was updated by a bot. Actually you have a sysop, even though it is not human ;-). In gd:wikt the AbuseFilter has administrator priviledges since it can block users attempting to break some rules. I would just say don't worry about that, this table is not so important. If it is really a probelm, ask a steward to remove the sysop flag from AbuseFilter.--Nastoshka (talk) 14:08, 18 March 2015 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for the explanation. This is fine as it is. BTW - we need that sysop - when we started working on the Wiktionary last winter, it had been vandalized fairly heavily. We have been working to clean it up and add viable articles. Cheers. Kibi78704 (talk) 19:11, 18 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[edit]

Tagalog Wiktionary needs to be improved[edit]

I worked with some entries in the Tagalog Wiktionary, but there are no admins that can help, and I rather cover Tagalog in the English Wiktionary. Most of the templates and modules remain in English, and are mostly untranslated. I don't know whether there are any plans to assign admins to help improve it further, but, is it still possible to have a few? --TagaSanPedroAko (talk) 05:28, 20 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Wikidata linking problem at yuewiktionary[edit]

Wikidata linking at Cantonese Wiktionary has been enabled, but every time I try to Wikidata link its main page to the other main pages, I get an error message that reads: "Error: $1. Either provide the Item "ids" or pairs of "sites" and "titles" for corresponding page" when I hit the button to confirm the linking. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?

@DraconicDark: Questions for WD are usually better addressed to d:Project:Project chat as that is where their experts sit.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:09, 6 January 2019 (UTC)Reply
I don't get the sister wiki zh_yue returned as an option when I look to add anything, so it would seem that there is a lookup failing. It doesn't look to be active in the sense of adding interwiki pages.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:14, 6 January 2019 (UTC)Reply
Thank you for your input. Cantonese Wiktionary is at yue instead of zh-yue, so a code conflict could be causing the problem. I will ask at Wikidata to confirm if this is the case. DraconicDark (talk) 15:17, 6 January 2019 (UTC)Reply

Mistakes in the table[edit]

I noticed a few mistakes in the Wiktionary list table:

1. Moldovan Wiktionary has been deleted and redirects to Romanian Wiktionary, so Moldovan shouldn't be on the table anymore.

2. Alemannic Wiktionary has been deleted and redirects to a namespace in Alemannic Wikipedia. I'm not sure how this should be handled by the table.

3. The table should say "Romansh" instead of "Raeto Romance." Romansh is the language of that Wiktionary, while Rhaeto-Romance is a group of languages.

I'm not sure how to edit the table, which is why I'm pointing this out here. Does anybody know how to fix these issue with the table?

Add Saraiki in the Page[edit]

@Sraiki: Thanks for reporting this! Actually it’s expected to be there, but a bug prevents it from appearing (together with the Saraiki Wikipedia on I’ve reported this bug at phab:T319137, and I hope someone will fix it soon. (By the way, the wikis are listed by their numbers of content pages, which – as shown on the main page – is still slightly less than 100,000, so Saraiki Wiktionary should appear in the 10,000+ category once the bug is fixed.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:03, 1 October 2022 (UTC)Reply
