What would be the appropriate tags for words that are used mainly in US Spanish, or other single South American countries such as Venezuela, Columbia, etc?

Hi zou,
What do you mean exactly? Do you want to have more tags? I mean for other countries that are not there?

Deletion of input with no source » answer
by Connum (DE), Last modified: 2010-05-24, 22:49  like dislike  Spam?  
I often stumple upon input proposed for [del] although the entry is obviously right (eg. http://enes.contribute.dict.cc/?action=edit&id=236457 ok this one is a bad example because you might well discuss whether this sentence is important enough to be added as an own entry although it only consists of common words and is no idiom, but there are enough such entries), only because it does not provide any source.

But if you review a new entry and you _know_ 100% that it is the right translation, wouldn't it be better to try to find a source on your own and add it? As far as I can remember this has been common practice on the DE-EN site as well...

For entries that are NOT everyday's language and do not even provide a source, I would still propose [del] myself, but If we proceed deleting entries that are right only because someone has forgotten to add a source, we might loose both important vocabulary AND motivated users.

What do you think?

4;Wenz Schön, dass ich mit der Ansicht nicht alleine bin! :)

I would also like to ask you all to ALWAYS give a reason for [del] votes. I think that is as well common practice on EN-DE and even if it were not, I would say that it is just common courtesty! ;-)
I don't want to offend anybody, it's just that I feel that some procedures outside EN-DE are a bit contraproductive...

Wäre echt schade, wenn GERADE der spanische Bereich ins Stocken käme... Zu mehr kann ich leider nicht beitragen und es wäre mir persönlich auch eine große Hilfe statt immer PONS und LEO kombinieren zu müssen... =/
Bei diesen Beispielen könnte eine Quellenangabe schwierig sein.  #520466
by Paul (AT), 2010-05-25, 10:34  like dislike  Spam?  
Ich schätze mal, diese Beispieleinträge sind selbst formuliert. Ich könnte mir gut vorstellen, sie zu akzeptieren, wenn sie an die Guidelines angepasst sind (ganze Sätze: groß/klein, Satzzeichen). Bestätigt können sie wohl nur von Personen werden, die beide Sprachen gut genug beherrschen, um Stil und Sinngehalt fehlerfrei erfassen zu können. Ich denke aber, es gibt genügend Teilnehmer, bei denen das zutrifft.

Aber andererseits: Wenn es eine Person gibt, die für [del] votet: Warum nicht einfach für eine Korrektur oder Bestätigung stimmen? Es ist nur eine Person, und die bekommt dann Outvotes, aus denen sie lernen kann. "Lernresistente" Personen werden automatisch in ihrer Voting Power heruntergestuft.
Danke für die Stellungnahme!  #520467

A lot of linguistic data has been lost on this dictionary -  #523180
by Kiskunfelegyhaza (US), 2010-06-08, 00:58  like dislike  Spam?  
one need only check Razorflame's archived votes to see how many entries have been deleted, many of which based on a quick check are very useful. I would like to suggest that Paul undelete these entries so that they can be given the TLC they deserve as we build up this little dictionary. This is one instance where I find it unfortunate that entries can be undeleted solely by those who voted on or proposed them. Razorflame's razor has cut too sharp here!
I totally agree  #523210
by Connum (DE), 2010-06-08, 09:50  like dislike  Spam?  
some people are realy too hasty regarding the [del]-votes!
by Paul (AT), 2010-06-08, 11:39  like dislike  Spam?  
I checked these EN-ES deletions and a lot of them were justified. And it's not like Razorflame would have done this alone - many others agreed.

If I'd undelete all of Razorflame's deleted entries, a lot of them would have to be deleted again, which would cause even more frustration. To save the good ones it would be more efficient to open the list of deletions in one window, and the input form in another, adding the useful entries again, and in a way that conforms to the guidelines.

4;Kisku: I only voted delete for them because I did not think that they were that beneficial to keep on the site.  I mean, really, how many people would look for those specific phrases on the EN-ES dictionary.

Nonetheless, I've already revoked every single delete vote of mine that is not already deleted, so that should solve this problem.

Hope this helps,
Paul: That may be a bit more work than most of us have time for :-(  #523372
by Kiskunfelegyhaza (US), 2010-06-08, 20:21  like dislike  Spam?  
I just hate to see linguistic data lost. Online Spanish-English dictionaries are a dime a dozen - this one will need to stand out, and having such unique phrases would have been a way to do that in my book.
Kisku  #523376
by Razorflame (US), 2010-06-08, 20:30  like dislike  Spam?  
Kisku, I would be more than willing to help go through the ones that you think are good for this site, and I will undelete them.  Just let me know which ones you want undeleted, and I'll do so.  I am willing to work with you on this problem.  Are you willing to work with me?
Razor  #523423
by Kiskunfelegyhaza (US), 2010-06-09, 00:39  like dislike  Spam?  
Why don't you undelete a dozen or so that you think are salvageable, then the users can take a look at them and try to make them work. On the Hungarian-German dictionary we had some odd phrases entered and were able to rescue about 80% of them, even if it was to grab one or two needed words from them for the dictionary. Others just lacked proper punctuation or needed one or two strange words changed to more usual ones. From what I saw of the deleted entries here, that is the kind of work that could be done.
Kisku  #523427
by Razorflame (US), 2010-06-09, 01:23  like dislike  Spam?  
Done.  I undeleted probably 10-15 of them, as that is all the time I have.

You said, "I mean, really, how many people would look for those specific phrases on the EN-ES dictionary."
The exact phrase, may never be used, but parts of the phrase or substituting different words, might be very beneficial to some. I am deeply indebted to the odd phrases on dict.cc that have helped me to figure out other uses. For example, a phrase such as: "An old man fell by the side of the road," might have limited use, but the expression "by the side of the road" could be very useful. (This is a made up example.)
zou  #523975
by Razorflame (US), 2010-06-11, 19:08  like dislike  Spam?  
I agree with you on that.  I definitely think that some of these could be very beneficial, and I believe that I might have been a bit hasty back then, but now that I've learned from my mistake, it won't happen again.

Thank you all for helping me to see the errors of my ways.  I will correct this behavior now.

idiotismo  #511719
by nanikk (DE), 2010-04-14, 23:08  like dislike  Spam?  
doesn't really have the meaning Wikipedia seems to think it has; so if you don't want people to think of idiots, you'll have to find a different term. In Spanish, locución, modismo, or frase hecha would be readily understood. If you want to stick with the "idio", I would recommend switching the Spanish equivalent to "idiomatismo", which is scarce and no perfect fit, either (it's much broader in meaning), but at least it's not hurtful... ;-) ¿O talvez "expresión idiomática"? http://es.pons.eu/aleman-espanol/Idiomatik

Idiotismo, even linguistically, refers only to terms which are grammatically (or otherwise) incorrect:
Diccionário de Uso del español: idiotismo (del lat. «idiotismus», del gr. «idiötismós», habla del vulgo)
1 m. Gram. Expresión incorrecta o que por su sola forma no tendría sentido, como ‘a pie...
