Wiktionary/LexiSession

LexiSession is a monthly online event to enhance Wiktionaries by thematic cross-project contributions. It is impulsed by the Tremendous Wiktionary User Group and aims to infuse as much Wiktionary as possible. The theme is not only a word but a vocabulary around a word. Depending of the project, the result can be visible in: one page, a thesaurus, an annex, a category, a mix of all this.

The idea behind this project emerged during Wikimania 2016 and LexiSession started in August 2016, with not so much planning. At first, we plan one LexiSession for August 2016 and one for September 2016. Then, it stay on a monthly base with more or less participation.

August 2016 - catEdit

First LexiSession theme is cat. Yes, a small nice fluffy animal, but how to describe it? What is the vocabulary you may need to describe this reality? Colors, coats, shape of the eyes,… We do not want to harvest species names but vocabulary that may be connected with. Limits will emerge during the process.

Results

Good result for French Wiktionary. Three languages have been studied and the thesaurus about cat in French gathered 9 contributors for 77 edits. It is quite decent and may help to create the missing vocabulary to talk about cats.
