This can be used in Japanese, too, can't it? For example, there is a film titled "まだ無名だった。" - -sche (discuss) 03:24, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Yes, 無名の - nameless, anonymous, e.g. 無名の手紙. --Anatoli 03:36, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Usage is slightly different in Japanese. In Mandarin, it's used mostly figuratively to mean unremarkable or unfamous. (Literal sense is used, but not as often as the figurative sense) JamesjiaoTC 03:49, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
Do we have a template for の-no adjectives? Should be similar to な-na adjectives. It's a no-less base (the entry is 無名, not 無名の) anyway. Not sure, how you format those. --Anatoli 04:26, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
We don't have a template yet, but the issue's been raised on Wiktionary_talk:About_Japanese#Work_Needed (as you may have seen at this point). Thanks for adding the Japanese section. - -sche (discuss) 04:50, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome, it was Jamesjiao then me. --Anatoli 05:38, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
