The following documentation is located at Template:el-freq/documentation. [edit]


A template to display the frequencies of the alternative forms of a word. Greek sometimes has many ways of spelling a word, it is useful for the user to be given some idea of the popularity of a particular form. For example ανιψιά has four forms, two of which have vanishingly small frequencies - useful information for anyone not very familiar with Greek.

Syntax[edit]

This template can handle up to five alternative forms, passed in ten paired unnamed arguments. The source and date of the data is passed using two named arguments.

  • s1 (the source) should equal HNC or Google
  • s2 (the date) is a freeform string, the suggested format is: August 2009


Code:
  {{el-freq|ανιψιά|56|ανεψιά|22|ανηψιά|22|s1=Google|s2=November 2012}}

Output:

   (Frequency comparison: ανιψιά (anipsiá): 56%, ανεψιά (anepsiá): 22%, ανηψιά (anipsiá): 22%  source: Google Ελλάς , November 2012)

Sources[edit]
