Wow[edit]

Wow! Brilliant job EncycloPetey! Harris Morgan 00:47, 28 February 2008 (UTC).

Actually, most of the credit goes to Rod, who devised the {{inflection of}} template. I've simply adapted his code. --EncycloPetey 01:01, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
A jolly well done to both of you then! Harris Morgan 01:15, 28 February 2008 (UTC).

gender[edit]

Why no gender tags?—msh210 22:52, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Because verbs don't have gender. The template {{inflection of}} is used for nouns and adjectives; this template is for verbs. They are not done with the same template. --EncycloPetey 03:29, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Pardon? In some languages, "he went" and "she went" are two different words.—msh210 15:12, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Which ones? This isn't a common phenomenon, as far as I know, and the template is generic. It's designed for broad usage. However, it is also equipped to be flexible by allowing text to be entered that doesn't have a shortcut tag. If we tried to include a shortcut for every possible text that might be included, the list would be enormous. --EncycloPetey 16:12, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Afro-Asiatic languages. Perhaps others, too; I don't know—msh210 16:35, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Now added 'm' and 'f': see documentation above.—msh210 18:59, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

lang param[edit]

The hash linking to a section with the lang param makes a list for some reason; e.g

{{conjugation of||r|lang=en}} {{conjugation of||r|lang=la}} {{conjugation of||r|lang=fr}} {{conjugation of||r|lang=es}} -- Pinochio 07:42, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

oh, it's because I left out {{{1}}}; but I still don't see why it does that, lists should only work when on a new line, right? -- Pinochio 07:51, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Not if there's a template involved. In that case you're subject to whatever limitations are imposed by the coding of the template(s) involved. Personally, I place explicitly named parameters last in any template call so that I can tell which other parameter values are {{{1}}}, {{{2}}}, etc. Inserting the named parameters first makes it harder for future editors to parse the syntax. --EncycloPetey 16:44, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

past historic[edit]

Hi. I'm experimenting with this for my bot: how would we render # {{form of|[[first-person|First-person]] [[singular]] [[past historic]]|étrangler|lang=fr}} with this template? --Rising Sun 21:53, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

As either {{conjugation of|étrangler||1|s|past|historic|lang=fr}}
or as: {{conjugation of|[[étrangler]]||1|s|past|historic|lang=fr}}
or as: {{conjugation of|[[étrangler#French|étrangler]]||1|s|past|historic}}
The second option would ensure the page is counted in the statistics without the need for a bot to add an additional "count" template to the page. The third option links to the appropriate language section explicitly, but the template does this anyway if the "lang=" parameter is included.
You could also use any of the above with the variant {{conjugation of|étrangler||1|s|[[past historic]]|lang=fr}} if you want to link that part of the text. The standard items coded in the template are not linked. --EncycloPetey 01:40, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Arabic perfect verb forms[edit]

Can this template be enhanced (if it doesn't do it) to accommodate Arabic verb forms, e.g. يَكْتُبُ (yaktubu), specifically "imperfect indicative 3rd person singular". There are a few candidates. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 08:43, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
