Usage[edit]

This template may be used in "References" and "Further reading" sections, and on talk pages, to cite Paul Brians' Common Errors in English Usage (2nd rev. and exp., 2009). It also creates a link to Brians' website on which the book is based.

Parameters[edit]

The template takes the following positional or named parameters:

  • |1= or |entry= – the title of the webpage to be cited. If this parameter is omitted, the template uses the name of the Wiktionary entry.
  • |2= or |url= – the template automatically attempts to create a link based on the title of the webpage specified using |1=, |entry= or the Wiktionary entry, but if this link is incorrect use |2= or |url= to specify the URL of the webpage to be cited.
  • |3=, |page= or |pages= – the page number(s) of the work cited. Use |pages= to specify a range of pages, separating the first and last page numbers of the range with an en dash like this: |pages=110–111.
  • |4= or |passage= – a passage quoted from the webpage.
  • |nodot= – by default, the template adds a full stop (period) at the end of the citation. To suppress this punctuation, use |nodot=1 or |nodot=yes.
