Template:suffix

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

base +‎ -suffix


This template is used in the etymology section. Use

{{suffix|language code|root|suffix}}

where root is the root of the term and suffix is the suffix. For instance, a simple etymology of doing could be created with:

{{suffix|en|do|ing}}

which evaluates to:

do +‎ -ing

Glosses

You can provide a gloss for the two parts using the parameters gloss1= / t1=, gloss2= / t2=:

{{suffix|de|Einheit|t1=unity|lich|gloss2=-ly}}

gives the output:

Einheit ‎(unity) +‎ -lich ‎(-ly)

Transliteration and script

For non-Latin scripts, use the tr1= and/or tr2= parameters to provide a transliteration if necessary:

{{suffix|ru|учить|tr1=učit'|gloss1=teach|тель|tr2=tel'|gloss2=-er}}

gives the output:

учить ‎(učit', teach) +‎ -тель ‎(tel', -er)

Suppressing categorization

If you don't want the template to add the entry to:

[[Category:<Language> words suffixed with -<suffix>]]

use the parameter:

nocat=1
