prefix- +‎ base


This template is used in the etymology section. Use

{{prefix|language code|prefix|root}}

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

{{prefix|en|un|do}}

which evaluates to:

un- +‎ do

gives the output

с- (s-, (along) with) +‎ путник (putnik, traveller)
