Documentation[edit]

For use on English plurale tantum in place of {{en-noun}}.

The optional first parameter can be used to provide a linked pagename.

Discussion[edit]

This seems appropriate only for nouns that have no senses that are true plurals. It would not handle [[statistics]] well (not that that entry is yet well-formatted using other tools). DCDuring TALK 14:54, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

This doesn't have a way to handle sg=, pos=, head= situations. See first principles. DCDuring TALK 18:28, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

See also X's and O's. DCDuring TALK 17:48, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Revert if necessary[edit]

I reverted a change by Daniel Carrero said to be unnecessary which put the template into Category:English nouns. Please revert my reversion if there should prove to be a problem. DCDuring TALK 18:28, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Uncountability[edit]

Some, but not all plural nouns are uncountable. The template does not support uncountability as {{en-noun}} does, though someone inexperienced with our inconsistency might expect it to. DCDuring TALK 18:56, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
