This template is invisible and can be added at the very top of the section you tag it with.

This template takes two parameters: the code of the language of the word and a comment saying specifically what needs work. It places the entry in the Category: "Language terms needing attention". Please bear in mind that the category may not yet exist.

A named parameter {{{topic}}} can be added if the page needs to be looked at by someone versed in a specific topic. This will add the page to Category:Entries needing topical attention, and (hopefully soon, but not immediately) to a topically-sorted list at Wiktionary:Entries needing topical attention.

Even if {{{topic}}} is used, the first parameter specifying the language must be set.

To add a category key, use key=. For example on London, putting {{attention|en|key=london}} will categorize the page under 'l' not 'L'.

When this template is called by another, add the parameter id with a value that refers unambiguously to the calling template; for example, when {{rfd}} calls this template, it uses id=rfd.

Users with most modern browsers can set their CSS stylesheets to display where in the page this tag has been added by using

.attentionseeking:before{content:"''any content''"}

This can be language-specific; for example,


will cause some browsers to display a bold, red "!!" where the {{attention}} is, and the tooltip over those exclamation points will be the comment (second unnamed parameter) in the attention tag.
