Parameters[edit]

|1=
The language code of the quote to be shown, e.g. en for English; see WT:LANGLIST for the full list.
|2=
The quote to be shown. It should not contain wikilinks.
|3=, |translation= or |t=
The English translation for quotes on foreign entries.
|tr= or |transliteration=
The Latin transliteration for quotes in non-Latin script.
|sc=
The script code, required for certain languages with multiple possible scripts; see Wiktionary:List of scripts for the full list.
|inline=
To include the translation in the same line as the quote, separated from the example by em dash, assuming that the quote, its translation and transliteration are short enough to fit in a single line. (Set it to 1 to choose inline mode.)
|q=, |qN= or |qualifier=, |qualifierN=
To include a qualifier for the example or quote. You can specify multiple qualifiers using q2=, q3=, etc.
|ref=
To include a reference or link to an originating external site.
|lit=
A literal translation.
|subst=
Substitutions to be applied to handle irregular transliterations in certain languages (e.g. Russian and Yiddish). If specified, should be one or more substitution expressions separated by commas, where each substitution expression is of the form FROM/TO, where FROM is a Lua pattern and TO is the corresponding replacement expression (see WT:LUA). The substitutions are applied in order and before transliteration; hence both FROM and TO should be in the source script (e.g. Cyrillic or Hebrew).
|noenum=
To use in unnumbered sections (not following a definition). It may start the line following the definition or may be prefixed by "#:" for visual aesthetics.

Usage quotes and their sources are normally preceded by "#:", or by "#*" or "#*:" to hide the usage quote.
