Template:zh-x


Example and quotation template customised for Chinese. Uses Module:zh-usex.

UsageEdit

{{zh-x|FORM|TRANSLATION}}
  • By default, this template gives a multi-lined example usage for a specified Chinese variety in the following order: (1) Traditional Chinese script (2) Simplified Chinese script (if title is both trad/simp and if simp usex is different from trad) (3) Reference (if provided) (4) Romanization (Pinyin by default unless dialectal variety is specified) (5) Translation (optional)
  • Note that FORM has to be in the traditional script.

Additional parameters:

  • |3=
    Variety (eg. C for Cantonese; CL for Classical Chinese; MN for Min Nan) specifiable at parameter 3. If unspecified, default variety is MSC. See Module:zh-usex/data for list of variety codes.
  • |display_type=
    Default is 'plain'. An alternative is 'ruby'. See example below.
  • |tr=
    Transliteration.
  • |tr_nocap=1
    Turns off the capitalization of the first letter of the transliteration (so that the first letter is not modified).
  • |ref=
    Reference (author followed by name of work). See also Module:zh-usex/data for abbreviations of historical works.
  • |in_notes=
    'y' if it is not used after a '#'-indented definition.
  • |a=
    An audio file of the given example sentence.
  • |collapsed=
    |collapsed=y Shows the traditional characters and English translation, with simplified characters and romanization available in a drop down box. Used for Classical Chinese quotes.
  • |nocat=y
    Suppress categorization into Category:Chinese terms with quotations or Category:Chinese terms with usage examples.

TricksEdit

  • CHAR{ROM}
    Override the automatic romanization of CHAR with ROM, e.g. 花兒{r} or 樣{joeng6-2}.
  • ^CHAR
    Capitalises the first letter of the romanization of the ensuing character, e.g. ^亞洲. Note that sentence-initial letters in romanization is automatically done.
  • @WORD
    Do not link to WORD.
  • CHAR\RAHC
    Links to CHAR while displaying RAHC.
  • TCHAR[SCHAR]
    Forces a traditional character TCHAR to convert to a different simplified character SCHAR, e.g. 著[着].
  • CHAR.CHAR
    Produce pinyin of CHAR CHAR but link to CHARCHAR.
    (To add example sentences which include a '.' in the text, see the example sentence on the 地牛翻身 (dìniúfānshēn) page. HTML entities .)
  • CHAR-CHAR
    (Mandarin) Produce pinyin of CHARCHAR but link to CHAR and CHAR.
  • CHAR--CHAR
    (Mandarin) Produce pinyin of CHAR-CHAR but link to CHARCHAR.
  • CHAR---CHAR
    (Mandarin) Produce pinyin of CHAR-CHAR and link to CHAR and CHAR.
  • %
    (Min Nan) Produces "--" in POJ. The romanization of the surrounding word may need to be manually added using CHAR{ROM}.
  • (To add example sentences which include a space in the text, see the example sentence on the 四十埠 (Sìshíbù) page. HTML entities)

For examples, see 愛怎麼著怎麼著, 曖昧, 想起, 來著, 阿伯 (Cantonese), 昨日 (Min Nan).
