Jump to: navigation, search

This template generates definitions for lenited forms.

Based on Template:mutation of 8 January 2013. Created for lenited forms of Irish and Scottish Gaelic words, but maybe applicable to other languages.


Use this template to show the simple definition for an entry that is the lenited form of a primary entry.

For most entries, use in the definition line:

# {{lenition of| |lang=ga}}

E.g., on "Fhrainc":

===Proper noun===
{{head|ga|mutated proper noun|g=f}}

# {{lenition of|Frainc|lang=ga}}


Fhrainc f
  1. Lenited form of Frainc.

Note that users can customize how the output of this template displays by modifying their monobook.css files. See Form-of templates for details.



By default, this template's output looks like a complete sentence, in that the word "lenited" is capitalized at the beginning and a period (full stop) appears at the end. To suppress these behaviors, the boolean options nocap and nodot exist:

code result
{{lenition of|Frainc|lang=ga}} Lenited form of Frainc.
{{lenition of|Frainc|lang=ga|nocap=1}} lenited form of Frainc.
{{lenition of|Frainc|lang=ga|nodot=1}} Lenited form of Frainc
{{lenition of|Frainc|lang=ga|nocap=1|nodot=1}} lenited form of Frainc

These parameters are useful for prefacing or following the template with more explanation.
