The problem of academic vocabulary is especially acute when it comes to Wikipedias with a relatively small number of native speakers. The purpose of this presentation is to identify ways in which Wikimedia users can look for solutions of this problem and use a comprehensive vocabulary in their writing. Since quality of articles is the principle aspect of successful Wikipedia, it is important to find solutions to this problem in a most efficient and practical way. This presentation is going to address mostly empirical issues related to editing on small Wikipedias for the use of their editors.
