Acceptable accent codes[edit]

What accents are supported? Are they in the format en-AU? Michael Z. 2008-11-25 19:21 z

Anything you type as the parameter after the {{a| will show up as the name of the accent, but if you use one of the ones listed at Category:Accent templates (ignoring the "Template:accent:" part), it will add a link to the Wikipedia article. Angr 15:39, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Module:a implementation[edit]

@EncycloPetey I have made a new implementation of this template using Module:a and Module:a/data as the current implementation is a bit unwieldy and does not store all of its data centrally. You may see a test of all the currently available presets here. Would you switch this to the new module please? —JohnC5 21:44, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

@Kc kennylau, Angr, ObsequiousNewt Actually, EncycloPetey hasn't been on for a little bit, so I'll ask y'all. Does this look all right to everyone? —JohnC5 22:00, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
@JohnC5 Implemented. Please also check Category:Pages with module errors constantly. --kc_kennylau (talk) 02:33, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
@Kc kennylau: Thanks. Could you also slap some <includeonly></includeonly> tags around it so it doesn't create an error. I wish I could edit it myself, but maybe I'll be able to in a few days! :)JohnC5 02:43, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
@JohnC5: There's no error now. --kc_kennylau (talk) 02:44, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
@Kc kennylau: Yeah, I saw. Thanks! I may need to update the module documentation so that people know where to add more data. —JohnC5 02:48, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
I am on from time to time to make small edits, but testing modules and templates is not my area of expertise anyway. --EncycloPetey (talk) 03:03, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Template:a subtemplates

I, with some help from User:Kc kennylau, have reïmplemented the {{a}} template using Module:a and Module:a/data. This will provide a much easier and more centralized interface for adding new accents (something which should probably happen, by the way). Is there any reason to keep the templates listed below, and if not, would someone delete them? All of their functionality has been added to the new module, as seen in my sandbox.

@JohnC5: I originally planned to delete them after making sure that everything is alright, but I guess I'll keep a record by copying the list and then delete them. --kc_kennylau (talk) 06:55, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

To {{accent}}. Reason: {{a}} tells you nothing about what the template does or what it's for; {{accent}} tells you (roughly) what it's for. While {{a|idiomatic}} may not be an obvious error {{accent|idiomatic}} is, because nobody would think that 'idiomatic' is an accent. By the way, I'm not suggesting deprecating or deleting {{a}}, just renaming it so that {{a}} is a redirect. Renard Migrant (talk) 17:44, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Support. Seems obvious, and has parallels in the other shortcuts ({{l}}, {{m}}, {{q}}, ...). If we do this, we should probably rename Module:a and Module:a/data accordingly. Benwing2 (talk) 18:16, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
Oppose. Particularly if this would set precedent leading to {{l}} and {{m}} becoming {{link}} and {{mention}} everywhere. —JohnC5 19:03, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
I don't think he's suggesting renaming uses of {{a}} to {{accent}}, which I'd also oppose, but just renaming the template itself and leaving {{a}} as a redirect, similarly to how {{l}} and {{m}} currently work. Benwing2 (talk) 19:16, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
Oooooooooooh. Yeah, that's definitely a great idea. Support. This is what happens when I skim things. :/JohnC5 19:26, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
Support moving the main template but keeping {{a}} in entries as a shortcut (like {{m}}, etc). - -sche (discuss) 06:53, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
I Support the merger, however I wonder about using accent as the name since it has multiple meanings in a dictionary context. Is there a better descriptive word, perhaps dialect or vernacular? Those are somewhat problematic as well, so maybe there isn't a term which lacks nuance. - TheDaveRoss 21:50, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
"variety" seems the most appropriate for what the template is used to. However, that would mean we could no longer use {{a}} as the shortcut, or accept that it's just a meaningless letter. —CodeCat 21:57, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
Or, if it is used exclusively in the pronunciation section, it could be {{pronunciation}} and {{p}}. Either way, we should keep {{a}} as a redirect. - TheDaveRoss 22:18, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
I support having {{accent}}.
I support making {{a}} a redirect to {{accent}}.
I support keeping {{a}} as the "main" name in all entries. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 22:01, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
Moved. - -sche (discuss) 23:46, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
