Declension-table template for most Hebrew nouns of the forms פֶּתֶק,‎ פֶּתַח,‎ and שַׁחַר. Some such nouns, though, are declined differently, and this template should not be used; notable among these is אֶרֶץ (whose plurals are in the feminine form), and another is רֶגֶל (whose plural possessives are usually of the form רַגְל־ rather than רְגָל־).


The template takes five mandatory, unnamed parameters: the first three are is the three letters of the lemma, in order, and the fourth is the vowel that appears under the first letter of the lemma: e for a segol and a for a patach. The fifth unnamed parameter is the vowel that appears under the under the first letter of the singular possessive forms: e for segol, i for chirik, and a for patach. The sixth unnamed parameter, optional, is the word dual if the word takes a dual instead of a plural.

A shin or sin should be entered, when appropriate, with its dot; but no dagesh should be entered with any letter.

The template attempts to be user-friendly in that it allows the third parameter to be entered as צ or ץ (for example).
