This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

Usage[edit]

This template may be used in Wiktionary entries to format English quotations from Robert W. Chambers' The Younger Set (1st edition, 1907), as follows:

  • To have the template link to a version of the work at the Internet Archive, provide the page number(s) on which the passage quoted appear(s).
  • To have the template link to a version of the work at Project Gutenberg, provide the chapter number quoted in uppercase Roman numerals.

Parameters[edit]

The template may be used without any parameters, but it is strongly preferred that the following parameters be included:

  • |1= or |chapter= – use this parameter as follows:
    • When linking to the Internet Archive version of the work, provide the chapter number quoted in Roman numerals or, preferably, the name of the chapter.
    • To link to the start of the chapter quoted in the Project Gutenberg version of the work, provide the chapter number quoted in uppercase Roman numerals.
  • |page= or |pages= – the page number(s) to be quoted from. You must specify this information to have the template create an automatic link to the Internet Archive version of the book. When quoting a range of pages, note the following:
    • Separate the first and last pages of the range with an en dash, like this: |pages=110–111.
    • You must also use |pageref= to specify the page number that the template should link to (usually the page on which the Wiktionary entry appears).
  • |2= or |passage= – the passage quoted.
