Template:pl-decl-phrase

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

Overview[edit]

This template automatically generates declension tables for noun and adjectival phrases. The phrases can contain nouns, adjectives (including adjectival participles) and uninflected parts of speech.

Usage[edit]

Examples:

Each parameter specifies the declension of one element of the phrase. Parameters to each element are separated by exclamation marks.

Due to a Lua limitation, to specify empty parameters, you must put spaces between consecutive delimiters. These spaces will be trimmed.

Specifying noun elements[edit]

The first parameter is the name of the declension pattern in Module:pl-noun. This is usually the same as the name of the inflection-table template found on this page, except without the pl-decl-noun- part, and all pattern names are prefixed by the gender specifier. There are also some aliases - see the module code for details. The remaining parameters (separated by exclamation marks) are exactly the same as for the relevant declension template.

Specyfing adjective elements[edit]

To specify an adjective, use the special pattern adj. The gender of the adjective will be automatically matched to the first pattern with a specified gender encountered in the phrase.

If the phrase does not contain nouns, use one of these:

  • adj-m-pr: masculine personal adjective
  • adj-m-an: masculine animate adjective
  • adj-m-in: masculine inanimate adjective
  • adj-f: feminine adjective
  • adj-n: neuter adjective

Note that adj-f is not the same as f-adj (feminine noun with adjectival declension), since they give different vocative singular forms.
