Template:meta-diacritical mark

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a metatemplate. It is used to create other, language-specific, templates that simply generate headword-lines and categorizes them.

For users of language-specific templates[edit]


The template ({{fr-diacritical mark}}, {{ja-diacritical mark}}, etc.) should be added to all applicable entries, always under a "Diacritical mark" L3 header.


Both parameters are optional.

  • |head= The text that should appear, if not {{PAGENAME}}.
  • |sc= The script code of the entry.


The code of a simple entry of a French punctuation mark should look like the example below. (Additional information such as pronunciations, etymologies and multiple definitions are not presented here for the sake of simplicity, but they are always encouraged!)


===Diacritical mark===
{{fr-diacritical mark}}

# Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

For creators of language-specific templates[edit]

The new template should be named Template:xx-diacritical mark, where xx should be replaced by the language code.

Just copy any of the codes below, and adapt it. They are identical except for the language code.

Example of French template[edit]
