This is one of my pet peeves. A wiki is a type of web application/web site for organizing information in a certain easily editable way. One software package of this type is called MediaWiki, though many other similar software packages exist. MediaWiki is the software which powers, among many others, the web site Wikipedia. The name Wikipedia in turn is a portmanteau of wiki and encyclopedia. Many other sites, such as our own Nesdev wiki and The Cutting Room Floor, are also examples of wikis. The web site Wikia offers hosting of wiki sites for countless special interests and fandoms. You can easily set up a wiki on your own if you have some web space and need a place to dump information. And so on.FrankenGraphics wrote:Citing wiki, this seems to be a fairly powerful thing to imitate, even for a portion of a song:
Wikipedia is a proper name. Wiki is not. Saying "Citing wiki" when you mean "Citing Wikipedia" is like saying "Citing dictionary" when you mean "Citing The Oxford Dictionary". No, not even "Citing the dictionary". "Citing dictionary" is the analogous phrase here. Sounds silly, doesn't it?
Thank you for your attention, your friendly neighborhood grammar Nazi.
