This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

Synopsis[edit]

This template, powered by Module:he-headword, is used to create the inflection line — the line right below the heading — in entries for Hebrew nouns. By traditional grammar, Hebrew nouns have 28 forms (though some are fairly rare), or up to 56 if we include the pausal forms; this template makes no attempt to include all these forms, but rather includes only three/four forms, from which the rest can generally be guessed accurately. Additionally, for nouns with opposite-gender counterparts, like איש ‎(ish, man) and אישה ‎(isháh, woman), the template allows for a convenient link to said counterpart.

This template contains the necessary meta-data to allow users who are using accelerated editing to create any grammatical forms semi-automatically.

Parameters[edit]

The template can take the following parameters:

|sc=
The script code. See Wiktionary:Scripts. This is rarely needed, automatically detected. The only exception are Paleo-Hebrew spellings e.g. 𐤉𐤓𐤅𐤔𐤋𐤉𐤌 ‎(yərūšālayim).
|wv= or |dwv=
The headword with vowels, for display purposes. Use dwv if the spelling with vowels differs from the spelling without vowels for displaying both spellings.
|head=, |head2=, |head3=...
An override for the headword display, overrides |wv= and |dwv=.
|tr=
A transliteration of the headword into the Latin alphabet, as described at Wiktionary:About Hebrew. If this is omitted, the term is added to Category:Hebrew terms needing transliteration.
|g=
The gender and/or number separated by a hyphen. Number only when other than singular. Note that this is not for plural or dual forms of nouns but only for dual or plural only nouns.
Genders: m for masculine, f for feminine and m-f for both
Numbers: d for dual and p for plural. The term is added to Category:Hebrew dualia tantum and Category:Hebrew pluralia tantum receptively.
If this is omitted, the page is added to Category:Hebrew terms with incomplete gender.
|pausal=
The Biblical Hebrew pausal form with vowels. The default, if these are not specified, is that no pausal form appears in the entry.

Forms parameters[edit]

For any of the following parameters, there is available PARAMETERwv= and PARAMETERdwv= to specify their forms with vowels, if they are different from the spelling without vowels.

|pl= and |pl2=, |pl3=...
The plural indefinite form. If the noun is a singulare tantum, most likely uncountable this should be set to - and will be added to Category:Hebrew nouns without plural forms. If this is omitted, the term is added to Category:Hebrew noun entries missing plural forms.
|dual= and |dual2=, |dual3=...
The dual indefinite form, rare.
|cons= and |cons2=, |cons3=...
The singular construct form. If no construct forms exist this can be set to - and will be added to Category:Hebrew nouns without construct forms. If this is omitted, the term is added to Category:Hebrew noun entries missing singular construct forms.
|dualcons= and |dualcons2=, |dualcons3=...
The dual construct form, really rare.
|plcons= and |plcons2=, |plcons3=...
The plural construct form. If this is omitted, the term is added to Category:Hebrew noun entries missing plural construct forms.
|m= and |m2=, |m3=... or |f= and |f2=, |f3=...
The masculine or feminine counterpart, if there is one. (This is for noun pairs like איש ‎('ish, man) – אישה ‎('ishá, woman).)
