Template:descendant/documentation

Edit-copy green.svg Documentation for Template:descendant. [edit]
This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

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 "reshaped by analogy or 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 provenance of the term as uncertain.
