Request for noun & adj additionsEdit

I've only just found this useful template. As I'm reluctant to try editing it myself, please could someone add the following types:

  • type=noun
  • type=adj|adjective

Thank you — Saltmarshαπάντηση 06:36, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

What would the template displays and how would it categorize when these parameters are specified? Mglovesfun (talk) 09:48, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks — the short answer is that it should behave in the same way that it does with verbs (1. Display This Greek entry needs an inflection template. 2. Place words in Category:Greek adjectives needing declension and Category:Greek nouns needing declension. I will have to deal with the 'old' cats such as Greek nouns lacking inflection. (The long answer - which I would not like to go into here - would involve discussing the wide range of nomenclature used for these 'request' cats). — Saltmarshαπάντηση 04:54, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
My reluctance overcome I've added the options suggested - hopefully satisfactorily! — Saltmarshαπάντηση 05:37, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

An error in the way it makes links?Edit

When specifying something nominal (non-verb-like), for example, it creates a link to, say, Category:Estonian noun inflection-table templates but noun inflection is called declension (Wiktionary-wide I think) the link should be Category:Estonian declension-table templates conversely Category:Estonian conjugation-table templates. As it is there are countless red links in Estonian entries. But I'm reluctant to edit it as it's very widely used. Are there languages that don't follow the principle nominal inflection = declension and verbal inflection = conjugation, if not it should be fixed as soon as possible. It appears et verb inflection templates don't follow that principle (it's not called Estonian conjugation-table templates but rather Category:Estonian verb inflection-table templates so it's not as consistent as I'd thought.) I'm making a redirect. Neitrāls vārds (talk) 12:45, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

"Declension" and "conjugation" are deprecated, at least in the category names. Some time ago we realised that many languages need inflection tables for different parts of speech, so they were moved over. We kept "declension" for those few languages where there is no difference, but there's also Category:Finnish nominal inflection-table templates, which is probably preferred for consistency. —CodeCat 14:13, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
