(Can we [[:Category:Requests for quotation/{{{1}}}|find and add]] a quotation of {{{1}}} to this entry?)

This is used to attempt to ease finding citations and references for definitions copied from Webster 1913. That dictionary often supported their sense with references to authors or works, rather than full quotations. The references were greatly abbreviated, but the dictionary contained a large appendix, with a fuller bibliographic reference. A copy can be found at Wiktionary:Abbreviated Authorities in Webster.
