Module:IPA/tracking

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This module allows characters used in {{IPA}} to be tracked. The tracking is language-dependent.

For example, {{IPA|/wɜrd/|lang=en}}IPA(key): /wɜrd/ will add the tracking template IPA/en/plain r.

Below is the list of tracking templates (from which the Template:tracking/IPA part has been cut off) with their "WhatLinksHere" link and the pattern or patterns that they track. For an explanation of patterns, see Extension:Scribunto/Lua reference manual § Patterns on MediaWiki.

--[[
	symb is what is tracked. It can be a literal symbol or a Lua pattern.
	If it is a table, tracking is added for any of the symbols in the list.
	
	cat is the subtemplate that is added to the default path "IPA/" + language code + "/".
