Template:eclipsis of

(Redirected from Template:eclipsed)

This template generates definitions for eclipsed forms.

Based on Template:mutation of 8 January 2013. Created for eclipsed forms of Irish words, but maybe applicable to other languages.


Use this template to show the simple definition for an entry that is the eclipsed form of a primary entry.

For most entries, use in the definition line:

# {{eclipsis of| |lang=ga}}

E.g., on "gcailín":

{{head|ga|mutated noun|g=m|sort=cailin}}

# {{eclipsis of|cailín|lang=ga}}


gcailín m
  1. Eclipsed form of cailín.

For entries that should show an alternate version of the term to which they link, use the optional second parameter:

# {{eclipsis of| | }}

(Example from {{plural of}} since I can't think of how this might be used for eclipsis)

E.g., on "stanas":

# {{plural of|stan|stān}}
  1. plural of stān

Note that users can customize how the output of this template displays by modifying their monobook.css files. See “Form of” templates for details.



By default, this template's output looks like a complete sentence, in that the word "eclipsed" is capitalized at the beginning and a period (full stop) appears at the end. To suppress these behaviors, the boolean options nocap and nodot exist:

code result
{{eclipsis of|cailín|lang=ga}} Eclipsed form of cailín.
{{eclipsis of|cailín|lang=ga|nocap=1}} eclipsed form of cailín.
{{eclipsis of|cailín|lang=ga|nodot=1}} Eclipsed form of cailín
{{eclipsis of|cailín|lang=ga|nocap=1|nodot=1}} eclipsed form of cailín

These parameters are useful for prefacing or following the template with more explanation.
