Template talk:gv-mut-cons

(Redirected from Template talk:gv mut cons)

Just CreatedEdit

I cribbed this unashamedly from Template:ga mut cons. I spent a lot of time trying to suss out the exceptions in the orthography. I think I've got it down, but I welcome corrections if I've missed something. I'm pretty new to creating templates, so go easy on me, okay? :) Embryomystic 10:40, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Great work! Llusiduonbach (talk) 14:11, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Can you or someone else add something so when you have capital F the following letter is capitalised? Right now Frank has it but it gives rank instead of Rank. Mulder1982 (talk) 04:01, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
@Mulder1982: Fixed. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 15:41, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
@Angr: Thank you. I also just now noticed something else. It seems that when F follows a vowel, it is replaced with an apostrophe. The only two examples I have found thus far are: Faaroish > 'aaroish and fallsoonys > 'allsoonee. I found both on Wikipedia so it'd be good to get a native speaker to confirm this. In any case, thank you! Mulder1982 (talk) 00:45, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Just now noticed the entry fockle. So yeah, native speaker needed on this. Mulder1982 (talk) 00:46, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Unless the parameters of every use of this template on an f-initial word are changed, it's beyond my template-writing ability to fix this. It would have to be able to take an input like {{gv-mut-cons|f|ockle}} and detect that the first letter of parameter 2 is a vowel but that the first letter of parameter 2 in {{gv-mut-cons|F|rank}} is a consonant. That is in principle possible ({{sga-mutation}} knows what the first letter of parameter 2 is in order to determine whether "s" mutates before it), but I've never understood how to write a template to do that. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 06:13, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
Don't worry about it, mate. I'll keep digging on this one and if it turns out to have complicated rules, I'll make a general inquire somewhere else on Wiktionary. But really, thanks. :) Mulder1982 (talk) 00:31, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
