Wikify, wfy, wikiize, wiki-ise, etc.
To format using Wiki markup (as opposed to plain text or HTML) and add internal links to material, incorporating it into the whole of Wikipedia. Noun: wikification; gerund: wikifying. See also Wikipedia:How to edit a page, Wikipedia:Guide to layout and Wikipedia:Make only links relevant to the context.
Wikilink
A link to another Wikipedia page or to an anchor on the same page, as opposed to an external link. For policy, see Wikipedia:Only make links that are relevant to the context, Wikipedia:Build the web. For mechanics, see Wikipedia:Canonicalization, Wikipedia:Help:Section#Section linking, Wikipedia:How to edit a page#Links and URLs, and Wikipedia:Citing sources/Further considerations#Wikilinks to full references. See also free link and piped link.
Wiki markup, wikitext, wiki text, wiki-text, etc.
Code like HTML, but simplified and more convenient, for example '''boldfaced text''' instead of <b>boldfaced text</b>. It is the source code stored in the database and shown in the edit box. Searching by the Wikipedia software is done in the wikitext, as opposed to searching by external major search engines, which is done in the resulting text. The size of a page is the size of the wikitext. See also Wikipedia:How to edit a page, Wikipedia:Guide to layout.
