-{{{1}}}us m ‎(feminine -{{{1}}}a, neuter -{{{1}}}um); first/second declension


Use this template on the inflection line of Latin suffix lemmata (nominative masculine singular, in most cases) for suffixes that follow a first and second declension inflectional pattern.

This template adds the entry to Category:Latin suffixes, and sorts according to the first parameter. As with other Wiktionary inflection line templates, please do not use subst:.

The template uses one or two arguments:

{{{1}}} - the page name without macrons, and without the suffix hyphen or the final -us
This parameter is used to sort the entry within Category:Latin suffixes, and is used to generate the inflection line if {{{2}}} is omitted.
{{{2}}} - the page name with macrons, but still without the suffix hyphen or final -us
When present, this parameter is used to generate the inflection line.

Simply enter the template under the Suffix heading, as illustrated in the following example. If the inflected form uses no macrons, the second argument may be omitted, but {{{1}}} should still be explicitly included for purposes of sorting the entry.

E.g., on "-ōsus":


The above code displays as follows:
