This page is not making sense. It says that, "Simple English Wiktionary will have all words in the English language" and yet elsewhere it is said that there are only 15,000 words listed here because only simple words are to be listed. Why is "hyperbole" listed on en.wiktionary.org, but not on simple.wiktionary.org? Thanks, RB 66.217.118.170 (talk) 16:11, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Where does it say that only simple words should have entries? That's not true; we actually have definitions for complex and obscure words, such as inconclusible and hyperpolyglot. The only limitation is that they need to be defined in simple language. This wiki is a work in progress; we don't have nearly as many contributors as en.wiktionary has, so naturally we're not as comprehensive. We're expanding every day, though; and you're certainly welcome to help out if you wish. Tempodivalse [talk] 16:29, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
