This template is used in the etymology section. Use

{{circumfix|language code|prefix|root|suffix}}

where prefix is the prefix, excluding hyphen, root is the root, and suffix is the suffix of the term. For instance, a simple etymology of the Dutch word vergiftigen could be created with:

{{circumfix|nl|ver|giftig|en}}

which evaluates to:

ver- +‎ giftig +‎ -en
