(Can we verify(+) this sense?)


If an entry contains a sense that you don't think actually exists (per Wiktionary:Criteria for inclusion), you can insert this template right before the sense, on the same line, after the initial #.

For example, you might change this:

# An [[impossible]] event.

to this:

# {{rfv-sense|en}} An [[impossible]] event.

which produces this:

  1. (Can we verify(+) this sense?) An impossible event.

Replace "en" with the correct language code for languages other than English. Please be sure to create a corresponding section at Wiktionary:Requests for verification next, using the little superscript plus-sign link. Please see the top section of that page before adding this template to an entry and listing the entry on that page.
