On This page the page naming conventions for this wiki are described.


Language pages

Language pages are named after the most common english name used for this language.

The ISO-code for this language must be a redirect to this language name.


(note the redirect note on top below the head line when you click the ISO code links.)

Morpheme pages

Morpheme's pages have to be named as follows:


Where <ISO> is the ISO code of the language, and <morpheme> is the basic phonological form of the morpheme.

If you find homonymous markers that evidently do not share any features you should use:


Where <ID> is an additional identifier, e.g. an integer < 1.


Paradigm pages

Paradigm pages have to be named as follows:


Where <ISO> is the ISO-code of the language, and <trans> is the English infinitive translation of the verb stem used in the paradigm.

If you want to use several pages for different paradigms of the same verb, you should use:


Where <ID> is a description of the sub-paradigm, such as “passive” or “subjunctive”. In that case the base page (<ISO>/<trans>) should be a disambiguation page with commented links to the single sub-paradigms.

Subparadigm differentiation

Material pages

Material pages that contain excerpts from language sources should be stored in pages with the following name scheme:


Where <ISO> is the iso code of the language, <Name> is the author's name(s) of the source and <year> the year the publication was published. All material pages are stored below the Materials/ subpage.

If you need several pages for excerpts from the same source, you should use


Where <ID> is the page (range) the excerpt occurs in the original source.


Phonology pages

Every relevant phonological rule for a language is stored on a separate page following the convention:

<ISO>/Phonology/Rules/<number consecutively>

And all these mechanisms are summarized on a general phonology page:


Whereas this site links to all rule pages and includes their content with different {{:<ISO>/Phonology/Rules/<X>}}-commands.
