Can שָׁאוּל (with diacritics) please be added? 19:02, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Hebrew entries have titles without the diacritics (vowel signs) on English Wiktionary: that's just our convention. But we do add voweled redirects to the unvoweled versions, and I've just done that for שָׁאוּל per your request.—msh210 19:07, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, that's not what I meant; I meant giving the full spelling (with diacritics) somewhere in the entry, on the inflection line, or wherever, so users/readers can see the various forms of the word. We certainly include such spellings for many Hebrew entries at Wiktionary (not as the entry's title, but in the inflection line, so if you copy and paste שָׁאוּל into a CTRL-F search, you'd find שָׁאוּל somewhere in this entry). 19:10, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Done. See the diff for how it's done, so you, too, can do it.  :-) msh210 19:15, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Thank you; the templates are really not user-friendly. At Wikipedia, we have templates like this: Image=X| caption=X|, etc. That way, each field is very clear to all users how to use them. 19:23, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

You mean that that appears on the template page itself (e.g. template:infl)? Here, we put that on the template talk page (template talk:infl, q.v.).—msh210 19:33, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm referring to the template you showed me, which has all kinds of abbreviations in strange combinations, like cm=X|f=X|noun|t=X, that kind of thing. It seems difficult to remember because of all the use of abbreviations. 19:35, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

The template I intended to show you was {{infl}}. It uses some weirdly named parameters, I suppose, but not so weird. Let's see.... head refers to the headword that should appear on the line. cat (which I've never used) refers to the category name. sc refers to the script; that's an odd abbreviation, I guess, but we use the same abbreviation in lots of templates, so it's easy to get used to; same for tr, the transliteration, and g, the gender. Isn't that all there are? I'm not sure where you're seeing cm or t.—msh210 19:39, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
