Antonyms[change]

Thank you for all the tidying up you've been doing! When it comes to antonyms, they should appear inline with the words senses rather than as a section at the bottom. See, for example, acclaim.--Brett (talk) 16:20, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! I'm actually working on a parser and it finds a lot of inconsistencies, which I have been trying to fix as I find them. I've been shooting for consistency mostly (I figure, that way they'll be easy to change, if nothing else). I didn't think I had changed the levels of any headings, although I have a list of them that appear inconsistent. Actually, you seem to be up on all this: do you happen to know if there is a definitive list of headings? Most of the inconsistencies are things like "Antonym" instead of "Antonyms". Personally I think the latter is better, even if there is only one item in the list. Do you think I'd be out of place changing such headings? Uranographer (talk) 09:25, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
I misread what you wrote. Sorry. They should not be in their own subsections at all. There are templates for them. That's better.Uranographer (talk) 10:08, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Related words[change]

Also, note that related words are derivationally related, not semantically. It's a stretch (though perhaps not too far) to say that ante meridiem is related to post meridiem in this way, though post and meridian would be.--Brett (talk) 12:45, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

So, those belong in a "See also" section?Uranographer (talk) 07:42, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
