Template:verb form of

inflection of term:


This template is used to create definition lines for inflected (non-lemma) forms of other terms, specifically for forms of verbs. It use Module:form of as a back-end.

This template is exactly identical to {{inflection of|...|p=v}}. That is, it is equivalent to calling {{inflection of}} and auto-setting the part of speech of the form to verb.

Parameters edit

|1= (required)
The language code of the lemma linked to (which this page is an inflection of). See Wiktionary:List of languages. The parameter |lang= is a deprecated synonym; please do not use. If this is used, all numbered parameters move down by one.
|2= (required)
The lemma form of the term that this is an inflection of. This is used to create a link.
|3= or |alt=
The alternative display form of the lemma. This works like the third parameter of {{l}} and {{m}}.
|4= (required), |5= ... etc.
One or more grammar tags to show. These give the definition by describing the relevant grammatical properties of this inflected form. A grammar tag can potentially be any text, but certain tags such as nominative, feminine, first-person or subjunctive that are recognized internally will automatically be linked to the appropriate entry in Appendix:Glossary (or in some cases, to the relevant Wiktionary or Wikipedia entry). As an example, nominative is displayed as nominative, with an appropriate link. Certain tags are recognised as shortcuts and are equivalent to spelling out the tag. For example, 1 is equivalent to first-person; both will be displayed as first-person. Similarly, f is equivalent to feminine, and nom is equivalent to nominative. The full, up-to-date list of recognized tags and their shortcuts and display forms is specified below.
Multiple tags are normally separated by spaces, so that e.g. nom|f|s will be displayed as nominative feminine singular. However, when punctuation characters are used as tags, they will be displayed appropriately for that punctuation character. For example, nom|,|with|3|s|object will display as nominative, with third-person singular object (i.e. without a space preceding the comma). Among the punctuation characters recognized and handled correctly are comma, colon, parens, brackets, slash, and hyphen. The full list can be found below.
It is also possible to put one or more tags or shortcuts between // separators, which will be expanded into a list separated by and. For example, writing nom//acc will expand to nominative and accusative. When three or more tags are separated this way, commas will be used except for the last two items; for example, nom//acc//voc//dat will expand to nominative, accusative, vocative and dative. Note that the default is to not display a serial comma preceding the word "and", but this can be changed using CSS.
The inflection tag ; is recognized specially and is used to separate two inflections of the same word. Sets of tags separated by a semicolon tag will be displayed on separate lines. See examples below.
|t=
A gloss or short translation of the word. The parameter |gloss= is a deprecated synonym; please do not use.
|tr=
Transliteration for non-Latin-script words, if different from the automatically-generated one.
|ts=
Transcription for non-Latin-script words whose transliteration is markedly different from the actual pronunciation. Should not be used for IPA pronunciations.
|p= or |POS=
Part-of-speech tag or abbreviation (see below). Defaults to v. Currently used only for categorization, which depends on the particular inflection tags and the language in question. Note that there are related templates {{adj form of}} and {{noun form of}}, which are exactly the same as this template but have (respectively) |p=a and |p=n as defaults, as well as {{inflection of}}, which is like this template but doesn't set a default for |p=.
|id=
A sense id for the term, which links to anchors on the page set by the {{senseid}} template.
|sc=
Script code to use, if script detection does not work.
