This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.


The parameters for this template come in pairs of the word without its diatrical markings, followed by the word with them. For a normal verb, this template takes 8 parameters. 4 pairs in the order, present active, infinitive, perfect active, supine. A deponent verb will have only six parameters, no supine.

To add (irregular) to the end of a word, add the named parameter pattern= to the end. So, an irregular verb with no supine would have 7 parameters, and with a supine would have 9. The value of the last parameter doesn't matter, but the most common possibilities are "irregular", ""semi-deponent" or "no passive".

present active amō, present infinitive amāre, perfect active amāvī, supine amātum

present active cōnor, present infinitive cōnāvī, perfect active cōnātus sum (deponent)
    {{la-verb|conor|cōnor|conari|cōnāvī|conatus|cōnātus sum}}

present active volō, present infinitive velle, perfect active voluī ([[irregular]])

present active horreō, present infinitive horrēre, perfect active horruī ([[no passive]])
    {{la-verb|horreo|horreō|horrere|horrēre|horrui|horruī|pattern=no [[passive]]}}

If a verb has no supine form, but does have a future participle, use the optional parameter 44= as in the example below.

present active sum, present infinitive esse, perfect active fuī, future participle futūrus (irregular)
    {{la-verb|sum|sum|esse|esse|fui|fuī|futurus|futūrus|pattern=irregular|44=future participle}}

If a verb has a secondary/alternative infinitive form, use the optional parameters inf2= and inf2mac= as in the example below.

present active edō, present infinitive ēdere or ēsse, perfect active ēdī, supine ēsum ([[irregular verb]])
    {{la-verb|edo|edō|edere|ēdere|edi|ēdī|esum|ēsum|pattern=[[irregular verb]]|inf2=esse|inf2mac=ēsse}}
