Hi all,

Any suggestions for next month LexiSession? Noé (talk) 13:01, 1 September 2016 (UTC)[]

Suggestion for November[edit]

Wine Aroma in English.
Roue des arômes en français.

Hi,

As November is Beaujolais nouveau month, I suggest to target wine! This nice wheel illustrated on the right may guide to make nice thesaurus. In a way, it may be similar as the one made for cheese on French Wiktionary, with the required vocabulary to describe this world. Here oenology is a very dense field, so it may be very hard to harvest it in only one season. But I think it can be cool to start! Noé (talk) 09:40, 12 October 2016 (UTC)[]

Hi Noé. Very good idea for this topic. Indeed, the lexicon of oenology is really rich and so there is a lot of work. Pamputt (talk) 21:31, 13 October 2016 (UTC)[]
A few English terms I can think of: flinty, oaky, flabby, quaffable (in wine-tasting); plonk, plonky, goon, bum wine, ink, dago red, Europlonk (bad cheap wine); wino, plonko (drinkers); glogg, mulled wine, red biddy (mixed wine drinks). Equinox (talk) 02:53, 27 October 2016 (UTC)[]
Wah, I've never seen any of those words! I am impressed to found all those in English Wiktionary and challenged to not find any in French Wiktionary! Great! Noé (talk) 14:16, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[]

Suggestion for December[edit]

Hi! I hope you haven't drunk too much wine this month! In the French talk page, Cbyd suggested for December: gift

I think it can be interesting to question how we connect nouns and verbs, gift with offer. Is it ok for you? Other suggestions? Noé (talk) 15:30, 25 November 2016 (UTC)[]

Possible cooperation[edit]

Hi, I am no Wiktionary user but I think you could have some fruitful cooperation with Writing weeks. They are not just about wikipedia.--Alexmar983 (talk) 02:14, 28 January 2017 (UTC)[]

for example if the focus is "Canada", some users of enwikt or frwiki can improve the entries about canadian expressions. If it is "Asia", they can also create entries for concept such as local fruits or tools or animals that are already on wikipedia but not on wiktionary. And so on.--Alexmar983 (talk) 02:17, 28 January 2017 (UTC)[]
Yep, that's a good idea. I didn't know about this initiative, but we'll try to support it in the future! Noé (talk) 14:01, 28 January 2017 (UTC)[]
And they last almost a month, they are scattered on various projects with different timeline. I can leave a message to them as well to inform you.--Alexmar983 (talk) 16:01, 29 January 2017 (UTC)[]

Pronuncify[edit]

It's me again. here is a new tool I just discovered looking at my emails. I don't have great internet but it looks interesting, maybe you can suggest to explore it for a month.--Alexmar983 (talk) 02:14, 28 January 2017 (UTC)[]

Take a look at commons this month[edit]

We proposed commons: Commons:Photo challenge/2017 - February - Multilingualism, maybe some pictures could be good for some Wiktionary entries.--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:09, 8 February 2017 (UTC)[]

New design[edit]

Hello!

I've update the page with a new display, shorter and more explicit on who did what. I hope it give a better understanding of the possibilities of LexiSession. It's almost a year now, and I am still up to continue this, but I want to make it more collective, in the choice of themes and in the process of spreading to more projects. I can write in English (almost) and in Spanish (quizas) but I can't present the project in German, Russian or Hebrew. Help welcome tho! Noé (talk) 09:54, 5 July 2017 (UTC)[]

Next themes[edit]

Feel free to suggest next topics. No limit, it can be a wide theme or only one concept.

For September 2017, I suggest peace as September 21 is the International Day of Peace and October 2 the International Day of Non-Violence. Well, September is also the month when pupils go back to school, so it can also be a nice topic to look for school and related words. I prefer to make peace. Any opinion? Noé (talk) 08:09, 23 August 2017 (UTC)[]
Fine to me for peace. We will propose school next year ;) Pamputt (talk) 07:15, 24 August 2017 (UTC)[]


For October 2017, I suggest punishment because the 10th of October is the World Day Against the Death Penalty. This year focus will be on poverty, and it is also an interesting topic. Any funnier suggestions? Noé (talk) 14:04, 21 September 2017 (UTC)[]
For November 2017, I suggest toilet because the 19th of November is the World Toilet Day (no kinding). Any clever suggestions? Noé (talk) 14:11, 25 October 2017 (UTC)[]
For January 2018, I suggest the most original theme, with New Year celebrations, from occident to orient, first of January to the 28th. Do you have a more inspired suggestion? Noé (talk) 17:56, 29 December 2017 (UTC)[]
For February 2018, I suggest radio as the 13th of February is World Radio Day. Are you listening or do you want to swap to another frequency? Noé (talk) 15:07, 25 January 2018 (UTC)[]
For March 2018, I suggested math in honor to 3/14, Pi Day! Do you think it's too large or do you prefer another topic? Noé (talk) 17:59, 26 February 2018 (UTC)[]
For April, as suggested by Cbyd in the French version of this page, we can do mine or mining, as April was called Germinal in the French revolutionary calendar, and Germinal being the title of a book by Emile Zola about miners.
For May 2018, I we can keep strike because of May 68 historical background in France and elsewhere. Are you ok with this? Noé (talk) 09:35, 30 March 2018 (UTC)[]
For November 2018, we may support Wikipedia Asian Month 2018 and pick something about this region of the World. Maybe trying to describe and structure the content around Asian languages? Noé (talk) 20:13, 13 October 2018 (UTC)[]
For February 2020, I am back here in advance to suggest before to start a thematic, isn't that great? Ok, so we suggest guitar and piano Noé (talk) 11:28, 28 January 2020 (UTC)[]
