As a user I'd like to be presented with suggestions to improve my search.
Currently search depends entirely on a word either matching the search terms, or matching the title of a page. This reduces the usefulness of the search when a word can mean so many things, for example, looking for "trunk", one may mean a proboscis ("elephant's trunk"), boot (a part of a car), a part of a tree, part of a body, and so forth.
- Extract these from the page with a matching title for wiktionary search results much like the widget Cross-wiki Search Result Improvements/self-guided testing#Wiktionary. For example(https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/trunk)
- Provide a search suggestion: "you may be interested in : proboscis, boot ' using words extracted from the Synonyms sub-heading
Considering the different wiktionaries and different headings or rules in each wiki, this may not be feasible until there is some way to store these in a structured manner.
Even so, just showing the contents under the synonym (and similar ones in other wiktionaries) heading will be a good short term improvement.
