In Indonesian Wiktionary, we encountered a problem where an Indonesian language called Gorontalo have a unique way of writing long vowel, which is using a colon (akin to Mohawk language, according to my research). For example, in Gorontalo dictionary, we could find entry such as:
*aa:bita - (the first 'a' is short, the second 'a' is long)
The problem is, if I link them, they will be treated as special interwiki link ([[aa:bita]] would link to aa.wiktionary.org). Changing the colons to HTML : still doesn't solve the linking problem. Is there any way to display (and link) those lemmas without having to modify the dictionary entry to follow the technical limitation of MW?
- [[aa:panga]] should show up between 2. [[aa]] and 3. [[aato]]
- interwikis in that page are wrong, those should be valid lemmas.
