This template can be used to format hyphenations for Finnish entries or generate them. The simplest way to use this template is to use it like {{hyphenation}} by manually supplying the hyphenation:

* {{fi-hyphenation|kuor|ma|au|to}}


  • Hyphenation: kuor‧ma‧au‧to

However, if no hyphenation is supplied, the template will automatically try to generate one based on the title of the page. For example, on a page named tavutus:

* {{fi-hyphenation}}


  • Hyphenation: ta‧vu‧tus

In case the automatic hyphenation should try something else than the page title directly, an alternative title may be supplied with either the t or title parameter (no difference in usage or behavior between the two). This is particularly useful if one needs to manually introduce a hyphen, such as:

  • with compounds: place a hyphen between the parts in a compound
  • with some genitives (hiki > hien (*hiɣen) = hi.en)
  • with prefixes / compound words, if a non-initial component starts with a vowel or multiple consonants
* {{fi-hyphenation|title=hi.en}}
* {{fi-hyphenation|title=paikallis-edustaja}}
* {{fi-hyphenation|title=hammas-kruunu}}


  • Hyphenation: hi‧en (not *hien)
  • Hyphenation: pai‧kal‧lis‧e‧dus‧ta‧ja (not *pai‧kal‧li‧se‧dus‧ta‧ja)
  • Hyphenation: ham‧mas‧kruu‧nu (not *ham‧mask‧ruu‧nu)

Hyphenation information should be placed in the Pronunciation section of an entry.

The template uses Module:fi-hyphenation as a back-end.
