Created for mutated forms of words in Celtic and other languages.


Use this template to show the simple definition for an entry that is a mutated form of a primary entry.

For most entries, use in the definition line:

# {{mutation of| |lang=xy}}

E.g., on "Nghymru":

===Proper noun===
{{head|cy|mutated proper noun|g=f}}

# {{mutation of|Cymru|lang=cy}}


Nghymru f
  1. Mutated form of Cymru.

Entries reflecting lenited or eclipsed forms in Irish, Scottish Gaelic, and Manx can use the more specific templates {{lenition of}} and {{eclipsis of}}. Entries reflecting soft-mutation forms in Welsh and other Brythonic languages can use the more specific template {{soft mutation of}}.

For entries that should show an alternate version of the term to which they link, use the optional second parameter:

# {{mutation of| | }}

Note that users can customize how the output of this template displays by modifying their monobook.css files. See “Form of” templates for details.



By default, this template's output looks like a complete sentence, in that the word "mutated" is capitalized at the beginning and a period (full stop) appears at the end. To suppress these behaviors, the boolean options nocap and nodot exist:

code result
{{mutation of|Cymru|lang=cy}} Mutated form of Cymru.
{{mutation of|Cymru|lang=cy|nocap=1}} mutated form of Cymru.
{{mutation of|Cymru|lang=cy|nodot=1}} Mutated form of Cymru
{{mutation of|Cymru|lang=cy|nocap=1|nodot=1}} mutated form of Cymru

These parameters are useful for prefacing or following the template with more explanation.
