Usage[edit]

This template may be used in Wiktionary entries to format English quotations from William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice (1st (quarto) ed., 1600). The template 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:

  • |1= or |act= – the act number of the play quoted from in uppercase Roman numerals.
  • |2= or |scene= – the scene number of the play quoted from in lowercase Roman numerals. As the original work was not divided into acts and scenes, look up the act and scene numbers from a modern edition of the play.
  • |3= or |url=mandatory in some cases: the URL of the webpage of the online version of the work at Google Books to link to. This parameter must be specified for the template to link to the work.
  • |format= – use |format=full to have the template display a full citation to the work.
  • |4= or |passage= – the passage to be quoted.
