Use of the template categorizes an entry in Category:Hebrew defective spellings.


Use the template name as a sort of parameter: use {{he-defective spelling of}} to generate "defective spelling of" and {{he-Defective spelling of}} to generate "Defective spelling of", capitalized. Also:

  • first unnamed parameter: mandatory: the standard-spelled term
  • wv: optional: the same, with vowels
  • .: optional: punctuation for the end of the line: defaults to nothing
  • demo: not for use in entries
  • cap: unnecessary for use

The template does not have a parameter for a romanization of the normal spelling, since a romanization should already be provided in the inflection line.
