The first parameter is the form of the headword (pagename):

Other parameters are:

  • tra= traditional form (optional, required when entry is in simplified form)
  • sim= simplified form (optional, required when entry is in traditional form)
  • pin= Pinyin (required when entry is not pinyin)
  • pint= Pinyin with tone numbers (e.g. ci2dian3); used for category indexing
  • mw= The associated classifier (also known as measure word or counter), e.g., for five dictionaries one writes 字典 (the measure word is ) so the entry for 字典 includes mw=本 (optional)
  • rs= radical/additional strokes for category indexing, e.g. rs=斤09 for 新 and rs=手04 for 扳, stroke count must be 2 digits (required if not p)
