Hello, Rolf Theil

Welcome to Glottopedia!

How to...

We hope you will enjoy working here. If you need help, just drop me (or another user) a message on the talk page. When you want to start a new article, please make sure that the topic is suitable for Glottopedia. If you have no idea how to write an article you can test the Wiki syntax in our Sandbox. Please read (at least) the first paragraph of our handbook.

When you once finished editing an article, please use the Show preview button at the bottom of the edit window so that you can make sure that your formating and layout works as you want. Try to fill the Summary field whenever you edit a page. That will help others to understand what you have done.

  • Thank you. I've lots of experience writing articles for Wikipedia in Norwegian (Nynorsk).--Rolf 14:49, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Your Identity

As we do not allow anonymous contributions, we ask you to state on your personal user page at least your full name and your linguistic affiliation (otherwise we may have to block or delete your account).

Please sign all your posts on talk (discussion) pages by using --~~~~. The four tildes are changed into your personal signature by the software when you save the page. (Do not use signatures in articles, though.)

  • I have already established a user's page in my full name, Rolf Theil, where you can also find a link to my personal web site at the University of Oslo. --Rolf 14:49, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Welcome again, and have a lot of fun, --wohlgemuth 14:40, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Dankeschön! --Rolf 14:49, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Overlap in article titles

I have started writing articles in Norwegian (Nynorsk), but there is a problem that I don't know how to solve. The first article I've written (it's not totally finished) is adjektiv, which functions until someone wants to write the same article in a language where adjective is spelt in the same way -- e.g. Swedish, Danish, and German. How is this problem solved? --Rolf 14:55, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

What we did so far was simply to add the language code (de)/(fr)/(no) to the article's name, e.g.: Deixis/Deixis (de). I solved the problem for you. --wohlgemuth 15:39, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Great! I didn't want to invent my own solutions! --Rolf 15:43, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
