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

Usage[edit]

This template may be used on Wiktionary entry pages to quote John Locke's work An Examination of P[ère] Malebranche's Opinion of Seeing All Things in God, which was published in Posthumous Works of Mr. John Locke (1st edition, 1706). It can be used to create a link to an online version of the work at Google Books.

Parameters[edit]

The template takes the following parameters:

  • |para= or |paragraph= – the work is divided into paragraphs. Use this parameter to specify the paragraph number quoted from in Arabic numerals.
  • |1= or |page=, or |pages=mandatory in some cases: the page number(s) quoted from. 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).
You must specify this information to have the template link to the online version of the work.
  • |2=, |text=, or |passage= – a passage quoted from the work.
  • |footer= – a comment about the passage quoted.
  • |brackets= – use |brackets=on to surround a quotation with brackets. This indicates that the quotation either contains a mere mention of a term (for example, "some people find the word manoeuvre hard to spell") rather than an actual use of it (for example, "we need to manoeuvre carefully to avoid causing upset"), or does not provide an actual instance of a term but provides information about related terms.
