"dot" parameter doesn't work properly.[edit]

wikitext result
{{abbreviation of|foo|dot=:}} bar Abbreviation of foo: bar
{{abbreviation of|foo|dot=;}} bar Abbreviation of foo; bar
{{abbreviation of|foo|dot=<nowiki/>:}} bar Abbreviation of foo: bar
{{abbreviation of|foo|dot=<nowiki/>;}} bar Abbreviation of foo; bar
baz<!--
-->: bar
baz: bar
baz<!--
-->{{#ifeq:||:}} bar
baz
bar
baz<!--
-->{{#ifeq:||<nowiki/>:}} bar
baz: bar

Conclusion: we should change line #64 of this template from this:

-->{{#ifeq:{{{dot}}}|NONE|{{#if:{{{nodot|}}}||.}}|{{{dot}}}}}<!--

to this:

-->{{#ifeq:{{{dot}}}|NONE|{{#if:{{{nodot|}}}||.}}|<nowiki/>{{{dot}}}}}<!--

any objections to my making that change?

Remove dot and ucfirst[edit]

Can someone tell me how to remove the final dot and ucfirst, such as I describe at WT:GP#Form of templates. Mglovesfun (talk) 14:52, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Meaning of third parameter[edit]

The third parameter is a gloss of participle or of what participle it is?--Dixtosa. 18:34, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Firstly — Please fix your signature to link more prominently to your user-page or talk-page.
Secondly — Neither; it's a gloss of the lexeme. For example, if the inflected form is a participle, then the lexeme is presumably a verb, so the gloss would most likely take the form “to ___”.
