LinguaLibre audio recording[edit]

You can use a wikidata query url with Form-ID in External Tools option in LinguaLibre, and then the User:Lingua Libre Bot will automatically add pronunciation audio file in the respective Form-id of lexeme entry. The query should have both ?id and ?label parameters representing form-id and form label respectively. You have to copy paste the "URL" to the query (from "</> Code" button or your address bar in the given form. Example queries:

  • All forms of a language missing pronunciation audio: query (replace with your language Q-id)
  • All lemma forms missing pronunciation: query (replace with your language Q-id)
  • Latest lexeme forms by a user: query (Replace with your own username)

Language-independent[edit]

Specific languages[edit]

Breton[edit]

  • A dynamic map of all the variations and pronunciation of the word "ki" (dog) depending on the geographical zone in Brittany (similar to this)

Chinese[edit]

  • Antonyms which differs only in tone

Dagbani[edit]

English[edit]

  • peas. To quote Wiktionary (wikt:en:pease#English, CC BY-SA 3.0): “The original singular was pease, and the plural was peasen. Over the centuries, pease became used as the plural, peasen was dropped, pea was created as a new singular, and finally pease was respelled peas.” I have no clue how this will be modeled, but whatever it is I’m sure there’ll be some interesting queries to write about this and similar words :)
  • Acronyms deriving from latin words, like e. g., i. e., cf., etc.
  • Noun lexemes which do not have a plural form
  • Noun lexemes which have an invalid plural form (see en:English plurals and [2] for rules)
  • Verb lexemes which do not have a simple form (see [3])
  • Verb lexemes which do not have a 3rd person singular present tense form (see [4])
  • Verb lexemes which do not have a present participle and gerund form (see [5])
  • Regular verb lexemes which do not have a past tense and past participle form (see [6])

French[edit]

  • Out of all feminine French nouns how many end by an "e"?
    • query
    • Reverse: how many words end in "e" are feminine?
  • Words ending in "-té" are usually feminine (but "un comité"@fr) or in "-age" are masculine (but "une page"@fr *but* "un page" for the person), but what are the exceptions and how many are there? maybe search for a link with etymology (most words in -té are abstract and come from a latin in -tas, exceptions probably come from elsewhere)

German[edit]

  • Plurals ending in just “n” (without an “e” before the “n”), like „Triumvirn“.
    • query, now annotated with comments, including in its scope all varieties of German, limited to nomitative-case forms, and excluding words whose plural forms are not obtained by appending “n” but just happen to end in “n” (like
      Pokemon
      )
  • Verbs ending in just “n”, not “en”
  • Acronyms that don’t adopt the grammatical gender of the last word in the expanded form.
  • Word triples with the same pronunciation and different genders, like „der Coup“, „die Kuh“, „das Q“ (title of a book by CUS (Q1024556))
  • Word quintuples with one vowel exchanged, like „Wart/Wert/Wirt/Wort/Wurt“ (from that same book) or „Zacken/Zecken/Zicken/Zocken/Zucken“ (inspiration) (probably very expensive)
