This template takes up to six parameters, of which the first is obligatory and the rest are optional.

{{de-conj-weak|present stem|past participle|perfect tense auxiliary|e|t|separable prefix}}

  1. The first parameter is the present stem, i.e. the infinitive without the -en ending. For example, for schauen, type {{de-conj-weak|schau|. If the verb has a separable prefix, omit it here. For example, for aufsuchen, type {{de-conj-weak|such|.
  2. The second parameter is the past participle, without the separable prefix (if any), but including the ge- (if any). For example, for geschaut type {{de-conj-weak|schau|geschaut|, for aufgesucht type {{de-conj-weak|such|gesucht|, and for spaziert type {{de-conj-weak|spazier|spaziert. Defaults to ge- + first parameter + -t (or -et if |4=e is set).
  3. The third parameter is the auxiliary used to form the perfect tenses, haben or sein, for which one can use a single-letter abbreviation, h or s, or hs for both haben and sein. Defaults to h.
  4. The fourth parameter (optional) is e, used only if the second and third persons singular present end in -est and -et instead of -st and -t. For example, for du redest/er redet, type {{de-conj-weak|red|geredet|haben|e}}. (Actually, anything at all can be entered here; {{de-conj-weak|red|geredet|haben|1}} will also work.)
  5. The fifth parameter (optional) is t, used only if the second person singular present ends in -t instead of -st. For example, for du büßt, type {{de-conj-weak|büß|gebüßt|haben||t}}. (Actually, anything at all can be entered here; {{de-conj-weak|büß|gebüßt|haben||1}} will also work.)
  6. The sixth parameter (optional) is the separable prefix, if any. For example, for aufsuchen, type {{de-conj-weak|such|gesucht|haben|||auf}}.
  7. The seventh parameter (optional) is the second part of the separable prefix, for prefixes that are themselves separable. For example, for wiedergutmachen, type {{de-conj-weak|mach|gemacht|haben|||wieder|gut}}.
