This template generates a definition in entries for Portuguese adjective forms.


This template should be added to the entry of any Portuguese adjective form aside from the lemma form.

Every adjetive in the Portuguese language can be inflected to two genders (masculine and feminine) and two numbers (singular and plural). The lemma form for all adjectives is always the masculine singular: bonito, pequeno, esperto etc. Even adjectives usually related to women have a masculine singular form: feminino, grávido, lésbico etc.

Additionally, there are two degrees common to all adjetives: comparative and superlative, and two more degrees used by many adjectives: augmentative and diminutive; these four forms are used to express larger or shorter size or intensity.

Unnamed parameters[edit]

The template uses up to 4 unnamed parameters to link to the lemma form of the adjective and add the entry to the corresponding categories.

{{{1}}} (required): the lemma form of the adjective.
{{{2}}} (required): the gender of the adjective form.
  • m (masculine) or f (feminine).
{{{3}}} (required): the number of the adjective form.
  • sg (singular) or pl (plural).
{{{4}}} (required if applicable): the degree of the adjective form.
  • super (superlative), comp (comparative), aug (augmentative) or dim (diminutive).
  • If a degree is not required, should be blank or omitted.

Named parameters[edit]

The template uses up to 2 named parameters for additional options.

{{{nocap}}} (optional): should normally be blank or omitted; otherwise, the first letter of the template’s result text is not capitalized.
{{{nodot}}} (optional): should normally be blank or omitted; otherwise, no period is included at the end of the template’s result text.


If one or all of the required parameters are missing, the template generates a simple definition and adds the entry to Category:Requests for cleanup (Portuguese adjective form).
