WikiKata Bulan Bahasa/Wiktionary Basics Workshop
[edit | edit source]

A 2-hour Wiktionary training and edit-a-thon in conjunction with Singapore’s Malay language month (Bulan Bahasa) with Singaporean secondary students and the public. The event will primarily focus on constructing Malay sentences based on existing Malay lemmas in the English Wiktionary as usage examples. The event also will be joined by other global Wikimania participants.

Bulan Bahasa is held every August in Singapore to celebrate Singapore’s national language and one of the four Singapore’s official languages.

Please bring your own laptop, tablet or smartphone for the event.

Format sample[edit | edit source]

To add a new lemma of a language into English Wiktionary, follow the format sample below. The format sample is for the Malay noun “kedai” in the English Wiktionary.


# [[shop]]
#: {{ux|ms|Saya membeli pakaian di '''kedai''' baru.|I buy clothes in the new '''shop'''.}}

For other parts of speech, simply change the heading and the headword template into the appropriate part of speech. For example, Malay verbs use {{ms-verb}}. Lemma formats vary for each Wiktionary edition. For example, the lemma format for Malay Wiktionary is different from the lemma format for English Wiktionary.
