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 quotations from Alexander Pope's translation of Homer's Iliad (1st edition, 1715–1720, 6 volumes). It may be used to create a link to online versions of the work at Google Books:

Parameters[edit]

The template takes the following parameters:

  • |1= or |volume=mandatory: the volume number quoted from in uppercase Roman numerals, either |volume=I, |volume=II, |volume=III, |volume=IV, |volume=V, or |volume=VI.
  • |2= or |book=mandatory: the book of the Iliad quoted from in uppercase Roman numerals.
  • |3= or |page=, or |pages=mandatory in some cases: the page or range of pages quoted from. If quoting a range of pages, note the following:
    • Separate the first and last page number of the range with an en dash, like this: |pages=110–111.
    • You must also use |pageref= to indicate the page to be linked to (usually the page on which the Wiktionary entry appears).
This parameter must be specified to have the template link to an online version of the work.
  • |url= – in most cases, the template will automatically link to the correct webpage if |page= or |pageref= is specified. However, if it does not, use this parameter to manually specify the URL to link to, like this: |url=https://books.google.com/books?id=21JfAAAAcAAJ&pg=PR8.
  • |line= or |lines= – the line number(s) of the passage quoted.
  • |4=, |text=, or |passage= – the passage to be 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.
