Usage

To use this template:

  1. Add {{rfv|optional reason here}} to an entry.
  2. Start a new discussion on Wiktionary:Requests for verification, using the (+).

If you want to display the template without adding the word to Category:Requests for verification then pass the demo parameter, for example {{rfv|surely not...|demo=1}} renders as:

A user has added this template to requests for verification(+) giving the reason: "surely not..."
If it cannot be verified that this term meets our attestation criteria, then it will be deleted. Feel free to edit this template as normal, but do not remove {{rfv}} until the request has been resolved.

If the RFV could do with attention from someone versed in a particular field, add the parameter topic=[topic]; this will add the page (automatically) to Category:Entries needing topical attention and (eventually, manually) to the list at Wiktionary:Entries needing topical attention.

Please see the opening section of Wiktionary:Requests for verification before using this template in an entry and listing the entry there.
