  • Oppose Oppose Words in english, spanish or any other vocabulary do not distinct through age differences... this is extremely unnecessary... Arep Ticous 13:02, 4 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Definitions are the same for any person. --Tinker Bell 23:17, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose It should be the aim of all dictionaries, Wiktionary included, to be understandable by all ages. If you think a word on Wiktionary is so complex that a child can't understand it, and you can simplify the language without losing any meaning in the more complex definition, you should do so. Note some words are inherently complex as they refer to very technical concepts that generally only an adult would come across. Supertrinko (talk) 19:30, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose Children must learn the same language that adults speaks, and as Supertrinko said, Wiktionary should to be understandable for people in all ages. Jnovikov (talk) 22:44, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
