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


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}}.


If any of the present participle, past participle, present tense forms, past tense forms, subjunctive I & II forms have red links, the page will be added to Category:German verbs with red links in their conjugation tables automatically.
