Jump to: navigation, search

The following documentation is located at Template:meta-punctuation mark/documentation. [edit]

This is a metatemplate. It is used to create other, language-specific, templates that simply generate headword-lines and categorizes them.

For users of language-specific templates[edit]

Usage[edit]

The template ({{en-punctuation mark}}, {{ja-punctuation mark}}, {{mul-punctuation mark}}, etc.) should be added to all applicable entries, always under a "Punctuation mark" L3 header.

Parameters[edit]

All parameters are optional.

  • head= The text that should appear, if not {{PAGENAME}}.
  • sc= The script code of the entry.

Example[edit]

The code of a simple entry of an English punctuation mark should look like the example below. (Additional information such as pronunciations, etymologies and multiple definitions are not presented here for the sake of simplicity, but they are always encouraged!)

==English==

===Punctuation mark===
{{en-punctuation mark}}

# Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

For creators of language-specific templates[edit]

The new template should be named Template:xx-punctuation mark, where xx should be replaced by the language code.

Just copy any of the codes below, and adapt it. They are identical except for the language code.

Example of English template[edit]

{{meta-punctuation mark
|head={{{head|}}}
|lang=en
|sc={{{sc|}}}
}}

Example of Japanese template[edit]

{{meta-punctuation mark
|head={{{head|}}}
|lang=ja
|sc={{{sc|}}}
}}

Example of translingual template[edit]

{{meta-punctuation mark
|head={{{head|}}}
|lang=mul
|sc={{{sc|}}}
}}
