The template {{he-adj}} is only used for Hebrew adjectives. If you are unsure of how to use this template, please use {{head}}. See also {{he-adj-i}} for regular adjectives ending in ־י(-i).


  • Basic parameters that should always be included:
    • tr= — "transliteration", for example nekhmád — the transliteration of the masculine singular indefinite form into the Latin alphabet; see Wiktionary:About Hebrew for guidelines.
    • f= — "feminine", for example נחמדה — the feminine singular indefinite form, without vowels.
    • mp= — "masculine plural", for example נחמדים — the masculine plural indefinite form, without vowels.
    • fp= — "feminine plural", for example נחמדות — the feminine plural indefinite form, without vowels.
  • Vowels/vocalization/niqqud:
    • these are desirable, but if you don't know them, or have difficulties entering them, don't worry about it too much.
    • for each form, there is a "with vowels" parameter and a "defective with vowels" parameter; generally you only want to use one. The reason is that the template should display (for example) נֶחְמָד‎ when the vowels are simply added to the usual spelling, but (for example) משוגע \ מְשֻׁגָּע‎ when the usual spelling includes emot kria that are usually dropped in writing with vowels.
    • the vowel parameters are wv= and dwv= (for the masculine singular indefinite), fwv= and fdwv= (analogous to f=), mpwv= and mpdwv= (analogous to mp=), and fpwv= and fpdwv= (analogous to fp=).
  • Additional parameters:
    • head= — "headword" — used to completely override the display of the headword. This is useful when the headword is a multi-word adjective, and you want to link to the component words.
    • mp2= — "masculine plural #2" — another masculine plural indefinite form, without vowels. (Of course, this is only needed if there is variation between multiple masculine plural indefinite forms.) mp2wv= and mp2dwv= are supported as well.
