Encouraging language students to contribute inflection data to Wiktionary is a 2010 conference paper written in English by Zachary Kurmas and published in WikiSym.

[edit] Abstract

We propose building a computer program to simplify access to the inflection (i.e., “word ending”) data in Wiktionary. This program will make it easier to both (1) look up a word’s inflections and, more importantly, (2) edit incorrect inflections. We expect that such a program will encourage foreign language students to both use Wiktionary as a resource and contribute inflection and other grammar data toWiktionary. We believe that the resulting additional activity will make Wiktionary a better resource for students — especially students of those languages for which there are no cheap, comprehensive inflection resources — and provide data that will be beneficial to the wiki research community
