Template:zh-l


This template and {{zh-m}} use the link function from Module:zh/link. Both templates take the same parameters.

UsageEdit

  • {{zh-l|TRAD_FORM/SIMP_FORM|Transliteration|Gloss}}
  • {{zh-l|TRAD_FORM/SIMP_FORM|Gloss}}
  • {{zh-l|TRAD_FORM|SIMP_FORM|Transliteration|Gloss}}
  • {{zh-l|FORM1/FORM2/FORM3|Transliteration|Gloss}}
  • {{zh-l|FORM1/FORM2/FORM3|Gloss}}
  • {{zh-l|FORM|Transliteration|Gloss}}
  • {{zh-l|FORM|Gloss}}
  • {{zh-l|FORM|gloss=Gloss|tr=Transliteration}}
  • {{zh-l|FORM|gloss=Gloss|lit=Literal meaning|tr=Transliteration}}
    • 中國中国 (Tiong-kok, “China”, literally “Central Country”)

NotesEdit

  • This template automatically guesses whether |2= is a gloss or transliteration. |tr= and |t=/|gloss= are available for when it guesses wrong.
  • This template automatically retrieves the first Mandarin pronunciation from a page if a transliteration is not manually given. (Transliteration can be hidden/disabled by making the manual transliteration "-".)
  • Simplified forms and pinyin can be suppressed using an asterisk * before the word.
