Category talk:Dictionary

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Delete every one of these articles please. This list is ridiculous - you have an entry for "alongside", but not "along" or "side". You have "assisted suicide" but not "suicide" or "assisted". You have "Godspeed" but not "Hello" or "Goodbye". You don't have "the" or "and". "Illumination and Calligraphy"? - not a word. You have 195 words or phrases in your dictionary, leaving only another 10,000 or so before you've even covered the range of words used by most English speakers.


You are NEVER going to be an authoritative dictionary, and it's stupid to attempt to do so. I suggest all these articles be deleted. BenHur 11:37, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

You show a deficiency in logic, imagination and manners. Of course we are nor going to be a second Webster's or OED. But it is perfectly rational to have a dictionary section providing clean, concise and family-friendly definitions, with examples of usage, of troublesome and difficult words which crop up in the articles.

Also, almost all these entries seem to be simply copied and pasted from actual dictionaries. I am fairly certain this violates many copyright laws. Jimmyjohn 11:41, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

I agree with BenHur that this category (and Category:Terms) should not have as many entries as they do, and I've been trying to remove them (though it's a difficult task when so many new ones are added each day). I would not agree that these articles should be deleted -- many of them are quite worthwhile and either have a) Dictionary as an extra category tacked on, in which case it should be removed, or b) don't have another category but there's an easy candidate to replace it. This category should be shrunk down to a handful of entries because the catch-all category "Dictionary" (or "Terms") is not descriptive in the least. Editors should take more care to think of a suitable category before creating an entry, rather than placing the Dictionary tag on it and hope someone else (like me, Deborah, JLauttamus, HelpJazz or someone else) comes by and fixes it. -Foxtrot 12:37, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
