This template is for Arabic singulative nouns (nouns which have a feminine form and singular meaning, and where the equivalent masculine form is a collective noun that is grammatically singular but has a plural meaning). The equivalent masculine noun should use {{ar-coll-noun}}. See شجرة for an example of a singulative noun that uses many of the parameters below.
