Edit-copy green.svg Documentation for Template:ru-noun. [edit]
This page contains usage information, categories, interwiki links and other content describing the template.

This template is used for the headword line of Russian nouns. All parameters are optional and the template will display correctly with as little as {{ru-noun}}. This template contains the necessary meta-data to allow users who are using accelerated editing to create any grammatical forms semi-automatically.

1= and head2=, head3= ...
The headword of the current entry, with accents. See the documentation of Module:ru-headword for more information.
tr= and tr2=, tr3= ...
Overrides the automatic transliteration of Cyrillic letters if needed.
2= and g2=, g3= ...
The noun's gender, specified in the format of Module:gender and number. For Russian, the following are valid:
  • For nouns that have singular and plural forms: m-an, m-in, f-an, f-in, n
  • For nouns that have only singular forms: m-an, m-in, f, n
  • For nouns that have only plural forms: m-an-p, m-in-p, f-an-p, f-in-p, n-p
Use ? if you don't know the gender at all. Use m-?, f-?, m-?-p and f-?-p if you know the gender, but not if it's animate or not. m, f, m-p, f-p are equivalent to these as well.
