Template:descendant

(Redirected from Template:desc)

English: word


This template generates an unlinked language name, colon, and link, as required for Descendants sections. It uses the descendant function in Module:etymology/templates.

ParametersEdit

This template takes the same parameters as {{link}} ({{l}}) and {{term}} ({{m}}). See the documentation of those templates for details.

There are these additional parameters:

|bor=1
Adds an arrow (→) before the language name with the tooltip "borrowed". (This is to indicate that the term was borrowed.)
|slb=1
Adds an arrow (→) before the language name with the tooltip "semi-learned borrowing", and adds (semi-learned) after the term. (A semi-learned borrowing is a borrowing that happened early enough that significant sound change has since affected the term, particularly in reference to borrowing from an ancestor of the same language, e.g. a French or Spanish borrowing from Latin.)
|clq=1
Adds an arrow (→) before the language name with the tooltip "calque", and adds (calque) after the term.
|sml=1
Adds an arrow (→) before the language name with the tooltip "semantic loan", and adds (semantic loan) after the term.
|der=1
Adds a double arrow (⇒) before the language name with the tooltip "derived by addition of morphemes". Use this when the term derives by the addition of a morpheme (affix) or by analogical levelling, rather than by regular sound change. This can be used in conjunction with one of the above single-arrow parameters.
|alts=1
Adds alternative forms after the term taken from {{alter}} on the page of the term.
|sclb=1
Replaces the language name in the label with the script name, either detected from |1=, or set in |sc=.
|nolb=1
Omits the language name and following colon. Arrows and qualifiers indicating borrowings are kept. This is primarily useful in conjunction with a parameter such as |bor=1.
|unc=1
Adds a sign to mark the provenience of the term as uncertain.
