I did not know this word. However this is a word that in all or most European languages ​​is imported as is. Therefore the same word is also used in Lombard. Regarding spelling, the dominant tendency is to use the English spelling and use it as a foreign word, then write "Rohingya", however I prefer transliterating it into Lombard spelling by writing "Rohinga" or "Roinga". --Gat lombart (ciciarade) 14:25, 5 Dic 2021 (CET)


"Tausug" must be imported from English by means of the Italian language, its traliteration in Lombard is "Tausugh" -- 15:01, 5 Dic 2021 (CET)

English pages without contentModifega

Pages without content (i.e. without definition) are to be deleted. You have been writing so many English voices without definition. I preferred to complete them rather than delete them as it is more useful for the wikitionary. However if you keep on writing them too fast, the pace is too much for me to follow.--Gat lombart (ciciarade) 12:50, 10 Dic 2021 (CET)

For me it is more important to write new entries in Lombard. However, I am also willing to do the translations you ask me and I would like foreigners to be able to learn Lombard --Gat lombart (ciciarade) 12:54, 10 Dic 2021 (CET)

Situation of Lombard nowadaysModifega

I don't know if you know the situation of the Italian regional languages. Currently the situation of the Lombard is very difficult because the Italian state has never taught it at school and only recently someone is trying to create orthographic koinè. Currently the wikipedia in the Lombard language is held up by young people who are committed to writing a language that is spoken only by the elderly especially in the plains. Lombard is currently in worse condition than the southern and eastern Italian regional languages, since in the North West of italy, regional languages ​​are being lost due to immigration. Nonetheless, our wiki projects are among the first amongst the Italian regional languages, but only thanks to the enormous commitment of those who write on wiki projects. We got wiktionary but the effort paid was very high. Our main mission is to keep alive the Lombard language but the resources are few.

For this I thank you first of all for your commitment to Lombard wiktionary and for your interest in the Lombard language.

As I said, however, the precedence goes to Lombard words, because the first problem is to teach Lombard to the Lombards. I can also translate English words but I ask you not to ask me more than 15 a day.

You can find the wiki-code for new pages on this page: Jut:Sintassi_pagine_noeuve ("minga lombard" means "not lombard", Nom = noun, Agetiv=adjective)--Gat lombart (ciciarade) 15:49, 10 Dic 2021 (CET)

So far you have asked me to translate nouns, but verbs can also be done, it would be useful as without verbs it is impossible to build a sentence. --Gat lombart (ciciarade) 15:57, 10 Dic 2021 (CET)

Page for guided creation of new pagesModifega

If there isn't yet the article you want to create, you can also create new pages (just for nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs), by writing the new word in one of the boxes below "Nom minga lombard" (for nouns), "Agetiv minga lombard" (for adjectives) and so on (for foreign words) in the page Wikizzionari:Pagina principala/Inseriment and then by clicking on the button "crea" (en)

Lombard doesn't have a word for "divination". "Induvinà" has the same meaning of the Italian "indovinare" (that is a verb but in lombard verb may be used also as a noun). --Gat lombart (ciciarade) 11:07, 16 Dic 2021 (CET)

Re: Parnonzia cinesaModifega

I have a look at the template.

  • First of all, this work is not among the most important ones to the Lombard wiktionary.
  • In addiction, I saw that the template as it is, on the English language wiktionary, considers Mandarin, Cantonese, Hakka and so on as varieties of Chinese, instead on the Lombard wikitionary we are considering them as autonomous languages ​​therefore they must have their own sections. So such a template would not make sense.
  • Finally, the way to indicate the variants on the wiktionary in the Lombard language is different from the way in the English language, so the template and the module should be re-studied, it is a computer scientist's work.

Therefore I conclude that it is too complicated and not very essential and for now not such as to justify efforts to create a template like this on this wiki--Gat lombart (ciciarade) 09:36, 17 Dic 2021 (CET)

Are Gan, Hakka and the others autonomous languages ​​or dialects of Chinese? --Gat lombart (ciciarade) 09:53, 17 Dic 2021 (CET)

@Gat lombart: They could be called topolects, and I figured that the pronunciation template could have categories like "Parolle in gan" or "Parolle in hakka" for example. --Apisite (ciciarade) 14:36, 17 Dic 2021 (CET)

You wrote "pescia" as a translation of pine but it seems to be wrong as "pescia" means "spruce" which is different than "pine". --Gat lombart (ciciarade) 09:57, 20 Dic 2021 (CET)

@Gat lombart: That was your doing actually, but no matter. --Apisite (ciciarade) 14:34, 20 Dic 2021 (CET)


Thank you for the restoration. Yes, I accidentally removed the translation, probably due to a wrong copy and paste, as the pronunciations were also wrong --Gat lombart (ciciarade) 18:48, 23 Dic 2021 (CET)

The wiktionary has been improved (en) El wikizzionari l'è stad mijorad (lmo)Modifega

During the last few days of the year, several fixing were made to the wiktionary.

  • First of all, the technical problem that was preventing the modification of the pages by clicking beside the name of the language was solved. This problem was mading more difficult the modification of the articles that includes more languages.
  • The templates nol sl and nol/sl has been introduced. These templates will serve to mark the ortography used in the translations of foreign words. Since on wiktionary both Nex Lombard Ortography and Writing Lombard are accepted, specifying the ortography used in the translations also of the foreign words has been necessary, not to make a jumble of spellings. Now you can use both accepted spellings and mark the ortography for each word.
  • In the wiki code, in lombard language artricles, the template "variant", that tooks the place of ‘’ALTER MANERE DE SCRIVER’’, has been introduced. Than the pages has became more beautiful and homogeneous. (en)

Lombard language manualModifega

Hi Spisite, if you are interested in learning Lombard language you can use the wikibook in Italian. As the Italian language is supported by google you can translate it into English with the google translator. This wikibooks was made for native Italian speakers, so some things should be treated differently for native English speakers. If there is something you do not understand you can also ask me, as my mother language is Italian and I am also the main contributor to the wikibook. Hope someone can translate the wikibook into other languages. --Gat lombard (ciciarade) 10:08, 4 Feb 2022 (CET)

Banana leaf (leaf)Modifega

It is better to put in the locuzzion framework only the word associations whose meaning may be different from that of the union of the single words, or for practicality for some associations of words in Lombard which are often translated with a single word in many foreign languages. I do not know exactly the case of the phrases "banana leaf" and "gold leaf" that you wrote, but I believe that "banana leaf" is not to be written, we certainly cannot write the leaves of all plants. Consider what is best to do as I do not have a thorough knowledge of English --Gat lombard (ciciarade) 13:44, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)

@Gat lombard: Consider the translations of the term "banana leaf" at the English Wiktionary. --Apisite (ciciarade) 13:51, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)
You are right if "banana" in English means only the fruit and not the plant. Is "banana" just the fruit or also the tree? --Gat lombard (ciciarade) 14:21, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)
@Gat lombard: The word "banana" can mean either the plant or its fruit. --Apisite (ciciarade) 14:25, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)
Then we don't need a separate page for banana leaf --Gat lombard (ciciarade) 14:27, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)
The English Wiktionary has what they call "translation hubs" like the entry "dark red" and others. --Apisite (ciciarade) 14:29, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)
Then we can do it in any way, since this has not been regulated on wikt lmo, but in any case it is not a priority for wiktionary. We should regulate it --Gat lombard (ciciarade) 14:36, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)
@Gat lombard: Fair enough. The English Wiktionary's entry for "banana leaf" ought to be added to "Category:English translation hubs" anyway. --Apisite (ciciarade) 14:48, 12 Feb 2022 (CET)

If you are interested in listening to Lombard music, I can suggest you some songs to listen to.

The text, however, is written in another spelling; I don't know what spelling it is but it seems something similar to Ticinese or Insubric spelling which for now have not been dealt with in the wiktionary.--Gat lombard (ciciarade) 11:51, 12 Mrz 2022 (CET)

I point out this song in Milanese dialect of lombard language, if you like to listen to it, the main word of the song is "zafran" (saffron in English). It tells of a legend about the birth of rice with saffron, a food of Milan (called "Milanese risotto" or "yellow risotto").

THE faëry forest glimmered
⁠Beneath an ivory moon,
The silver grasses shimmered
⁠Against a faëry tune.

Beneath the silken silence
⁠The crystal branches slept,
And dreaming thro' the dew-fall
⁠The cold white blossoms wept.

El bosch ingermad

El bosch ingermad el sberlusiva
⁠ Sota ona luna d'avoli,

@Apisite: Unfortunately, this kind of work takes time, but the Lombard's priorities are different. You should find someone who is fond of poetry to do this.
First of all an important work to do is to make the study of Lombard possible. For example by translating into other languages the book about Lombard ​​that you can find amongst the Italian wikibooks. --Gat lombard (ciciarade) 15:00, 5 oto 2022 (CEST)

Lombard lessonsModifega

I found in youtube these Lombard lessons; There's soma translation into English. Unfortunately, they are written in orthography "Writing Lombard" and in an oriental transitional dialect between Cremasco and Cremonese (CrCR) (conversely in the wiktionary there is above all the New Lombard Orthography and the Milanese dialect). However, they can help you get words and learn more of the language. The transformation from one spelling to another is not automatic and unique.

Hi Apisite, I'm stopping here with the translations as all the main pages have been translated. The only one of the main ones not translated is the one about nouns, which explains the plural of nouns, but that is intuitively understandable even in the Lombard language (see here: Apendice:Plural di nom in lombard) The others are mainly lexicon appendices and are not strictly necessary since there is the Wiktionary. The wikibook lacks examples, they could be added as the wikictionary develops if you are interested, by copiyng the examples of the wiktionary.
