This template is new and in a state of flux, but as of right now, it takes the following parameters:

  • |examples= — mandatory — The actual examples, usually formatted as a list.
  • |sense= — optional — A brief description of the relevant sense.
  • |width= — optional (default 35%) — The width of the box, in CSS form (e.g. 19.4%, 210px, 30ex, etc.).

Examples (linguistics)
  • strong tea
  • heavy drinker
  • powerful computer

For an example, see the linguistics context of collocation. The following code generates the box on the right:

* strong tea
* heavy drinker
* powerful computer}}

For a noun, e.g., this template should usually be placed immediately after the ===Noun=== line and before the definition of the noun in the Wiktionary entry. If you place the template next to the appropriate definition in a list of definitions, it will break the numbering of the definitions.
