This tutorial explains how to get weekly vocabulary list of Wikipedia Word of the Day in an email.
I’m not sure if there is any other way to accomplish this task or not, but I use a very simple trick to get weekly vocabulary list of words published on Wiktionary in my email. I take the help of IFTTT recipe that triggers automatically and sends the list of words published on Wiktionary the past week to my email account.
The recipe sends the email to the address registered with IFTTT. You will be able to set the time and day of the week to get the email. The rest of the work is performed by the recipe automatically. In the email, you can see the words as well as the definitions of the words. For more details, you can also access the source page of a particular word.
This is the recipe of IFTTT (visible in screenshot above) that I use to get weekly vocabulary list.

How to Automatically Get Weekly Vocabulary list of Wikipedia Word of the Day in Email?
Step 1: Open IFTTT website. After this, you can either use the recipe used by me or manually search a recipe to perform this task.
Step 2: When you are on the homepage of the recipe, you need to set the day of week and time. The recipe will send vocabulary list on exact day and time.
Step 3: This is not the mandatory step, but you can use this step to add some changes to the fields of the recipe. You can set the code for the language, change the title of recipe (that will be the subject of email), etc.. If you don’t want to add changes, leave the fields as it is.
Step 4: This is the final step. Tap on Add button. The recipe will be added to your IFTTT account in My Recipes menu.
Now when that day of week and time of day (set by you) will come, the recipe will automatically send you an email that will contain the list of words published on Wiktionary the past week.
