(Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)


Usage

This template is used to request a source for doubtful etymologies in ===Etymology=== sections. It takes a single named parameter:

|1=, |lang=
The language code of the entry in which the Etymology section is found: for instance, en in an English entry.
|fragment=, |section=
Name of the section in the Etymology Scriptorium in which this entry is being discussed. Defaults to the entry title.
|sort=
Sortkey for the request category. Do not provide this unless absolutely necessary, as Module:utilities usually generates a suitable sortkey.

For example:

{{rfv-etymology|en}} or {{rfv-etymology|lang=en}}

Optionally, you can start a new discussion on Etymology Scriptorium, using the (+).

The template also places the entry into a hidden request category so that interested editors can look up etymologies that need sources. For an English language code as shown above, that would be Category:Requests for references for etymologies in English entries.
