Template talk:-er

I propose this template for the etymology of agent noun ending by -er. (example: rooter). 16@r 12:25, 12 April 2007 (UTC)


Wouldn't {{agent noun}} be a better name for this? Maybe it should also use {{suffix}}. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:15, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

No, this template can only be used for English. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:37, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

This is an English-only template, so the name should reflect that. —CodeCat 15:24, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Its main advantage over {{suffix|foo|er|lang=en}} seems to be its brevity. I see little point in having it if it is renamed (or, TBH, even if it's not). It might be better to expand it to allow a lang= paramater (either adding lang=en to all current uses, or setting it to default to lang=en if no lang= is set). It could then be used for German and other languages. - -sche (discuss) 06:04, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
If kept, it should allow a lang= parameter so it can be used on German and other entries. Ditto the little-used Template:-or. But IMO merge both (but especially the little-used {{-or}}) into Template:suffix. - -sche (discuss) 20:00, 10 August 2015 (UTC)


Should be modified, renamed or (my preference) merged into Template:suffix in the same way as Template:-er. - -sche (discuss) 20:00, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Merged into Template:suffix. - -sche (discuss) 23:15, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
