Jump to: navigation, search

This etymology is incomplete. You can help Wiktionary by elaborating on the origins of this term.


This template is to be used in etymologies that are stubs, that is, overly short and/or lacking detail. It should normally be used directly after the etymology on the same line. It takes two, optional parameters:

  • lang or 1: the language code or language name of the language in question. See Wiktionary:Languages.
  • nocap: to have the initial 'T' of 'This' as a lowercase 't'.
  • nodot: to omit the final period/full stop.
