ast-noun ? (plural ast-nouns)


This template is designed for use with all Asturian nouns that have both a singular and plural form, regardless of gender.

This template should be placed in all Asturian noun sections, immediately following the ===Noun=== section header. It provides the headword line for the entry. The template also automatically categorizes the entry in Category:Asturian nouns.

Only use this template for the lemma (singular) form.

As with other Wiktionary headword templates, please do not use subst:.


The template takes one or two unnamed parameters.

  • {{{1}}} : the grammatical gender, e.g. m, f
  • {{{2}}} : the plural form, e.g. llapiceros

For a noun that forms its plural by adding s, enter the template as follows under the Noun subheading:


E.g., on "imaxe":

ast-noun f (plural ast-nouns)

If the plural is formed in any way other than adding an s (including most regular nouns, and including when the plural form is equivalent to the singular), include the plural form as the second (unnamed) parameter.

E.g., on "llapiceru":

llapiceru m (plural llapiceros)

E.g., on "abreviatura":

abreviatura f (plural abreviatures)

E.g., on "llibertá":

llibertá f (plural llibertaes)

If the noun is plurale tantum (with no singular form), use the template {{head}} instead:

E.g., on "gafes":

gafes f pl

If the noun has no plural form, or if you do not know the plural, use the template {{head}} instead:

E.g., on "carbonu":

carbonu m

If the noun has both masculine and feminine forms, use the template {{ast-noun-mf}}.

E.g., on "italianu":

italianu m sg (feminine singular italiana, masculine plural italianos, feminine plural italianes)

This template contains the necessary meta-data to allow users who are using accelerated editing to create any grammatical forms semi-automatically.
