Can I get rid of red letter pluralization that automatically populates new pages

It provides hints for experimentation.

I think you mean that if I past those templates the problem will go away.

It seems obvious but I am not sure that it will get the exact effect I would like to see.

I will try it but I've got a back log of new definitions I want to get created session so I might not get to it.

I hope people don't mind but I have a lot of ideas for great new entries and I am not into polishing them up with pronuounciation and etymology at the moment. I don't think that is all that important on some type of words,technical words.

Yeah cool works perfect.

What is the template if there IS a plural. Check out Yakima. What's the drill?

If there is a plural, the way you have it at Yakima is exactly right assuming Yakimas is the plural of Yakima. I assume that if it has a plural, it also means "a person of the Yakima tribe"?

If you want an easy way of adding entries for these plurals, you can use WT:ACCEL and install it by selecting, in Special:Preferences, under the Gadgets tab, "Add accelerated creation links for common inflections of some words." Does this answer your question?

I think Yakimas is improper. She is Yakima. They are Yakima. I went to pray with the South Fork Yakima tribe. I went to pray with the South Fork Yakima. But if you look at all of the different bands of the Yakima, you might say that there are indeed, through history and time, different forms of the the Yakima[s].[?]Geof Bard 19:36, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

"Yakimas" seems to see some usage, however. [1] There are some usages in that selection of "Yakima" as the plural of "Yakima" too.

If you want to specify that it has two plural forms like antelope, you can use {{en-noun|pl=antelope|pl2=antelopes}}. For more sophisticated things, you could use, for example, {{en-noun|pl='''moose''', (''chiefly humorous'') '''[[meese]]''', (''dated, rare'') '''[[mooses]]'''}}.

Hope this helps.

She was Yakima. She was one of the Yakimas. She was of the Yakima. She was of the Yakimas. Yes two plural forms.
