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

Use this template to specify an accent qualifier for a pronunciation.

It is to be used under the Pronunciation header, as the first template on a line after an asterisk. It may very rarely be used in other ways (for example, under usage notes). It should only be used for accents, usually in the form of a place name, such as Canada, Massachusetts, London. It should not be used for other qualifiers like noun, verb adjective (and so on). The template {{qualifier}} is used for these.

Labels are added to Module:a/data, the data submodule of Module:a.

* {{a|RP}} {{IPA|/wɜːd/|lang=en}}
* {{a|US|Canada}} {{enPR|wûrd}}, {{IPA|/wɝd/|lang=en}}

For other qualifiers, the following templates are preferred:

  • To provide a context for a definition, use {{context}} instead.
  • To provide a sense to which a synonym, antonym, related term, or other -onym applies, use {{sense}} instead.
  • To qualify a list item with something other than a sense gloss (e.g. to qualify a synonym with a region or register), use {{qualifier}} instead.


Readers can customize the styles using WT:PREFS or by editing their personal CSS files (e.g. Special:Mypage/monobook.css), as described in WT:CUSTOM.
