There are two specialised versions of this template. {{nl-noun-dim}} is used for diminutives. {{nl-noun-adj}} is used for adjectives that are used as nouns, such as jongere or volwassene.

This template contains the necessary meta-data to allow users who are using accelerated editing to create any grammatical forms semi-automatically.

Usage[edit]

This template can take various parameters, both numbered and named. See m:Help:Template for help with templates and parameters in general.

Parameter 1 provides the gender, parameters 2 and 3 stand for the plural and diminutive, respectively. To specify multiple genders, plurals or diminutives, use g2=, g3=, pl2=, pl3=, dim2=.

Gender[edit]

Use m as the first parameter to indicate masculine gender, f for feminine, n for neuter. p is used if the noun is used only in the plural with this meaning, but does not necessarily denote several things (plurale tantum). To specify more than one gender, use g2= or g3=. If you’re not sure about the gender, use ? as the gender or just leave it empty. If you know that the noun is a de word, but not whether it's masculine or feminine, use c.

Plural[edit]

Use the second parameter to specify the plural:

{{nl-noun|n|huizen|huisje}}
huis n (plural huizen, diminutive huisje n)

boom m (plural bomen, diminutive boompje n)

On the page beest:

{{nl-noun|n|beesten|beestje}}

zin van het leven m (uncountable)
