You can help Wiktionary by providing a proper etymology.

This template is a less intrusive way of indicating missing etymologies than is provided by either {{rfe}} or {{etystub}}. It takes two, optional parameters:

  • lang: the language code or language name of the language in question. See Wiktionary:Languages
  • nocap: to have the initial 'Y' of 'You' as a lowercase 'y'

  • {{etystub}}
  • {{rfe}}, to request an etymology when there is no etymology. In the form of a box, not a line of text
  • {{rfv-etymology}}, to dispute or question an etymology
