Note that dictionary and encyclopedia articles do not differ simply on grounds of ''length''. A [[wikt:Wiktionary:Entry layout explained|''full'' dictionary article]] (as opposed to a stub dictionary article, which is simply where Wiktionary articles ''start from'') or [[encyclopedic dictionary]] entry would contain illustrative quotations for each listed meaning; etymologies; translations; inflections; links to related and derived terms; links to synonyms, antonyms, and homophones; a pronunciation guide in various dialects, including links to sound files; and usage notes; and can be very long indeed. Short dictionary articles are artifacts of paper dictionaries being space-limited. Not all dictionaries are limited by the size of the paper. [[wikt:Wiktionary:What Wiktionary is not|Wiktionary is not paper]] either.
