I wanted to use this template, but there's still some annoying stuff. First, the parameters etyl lang and etyl term are horribly long. The lang code of the origin should be the first parameter, like in {{borrowing}} or {{etyl}}. The "etyl term" should be the last unnamed parameter (not easy to implement, but possible). Also, as with other templates, the lang parameter should default to English. Thanks, --The Evil IP address 15:54, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Or maybe a t= parameter would do fine, as in {{borrowing}}. Another thing I forgot was to add {{term}} around all links. --The Evil IP address 16:03, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm similarly frustrated by this template. Not as neat and simple as {{der}}, {{inh}}, and {{translit}}. — Eru·tuon 01:49, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Transliteration parameters needed[edit]

This needs parameters tr1, tr2, tr3, tr4, tr5, and etyl tr for transliterations of the parts and parent term. Michael Z. 2013-04-27 21:42 z

  • Added tr# params for transliterations and t# params for translations. It wouldn't be hard to add pos# params for POS (or other note info) later if needed. See {{compound}}, for instance. HTH, -- Eiríkr Útlendi │ Tala við mig 20:23, 16 May 2013 (UTC)


I created the redirect {{calq}}, which is more inline with {{bor}}, {{inh}}, {{der}}. --Victar (talk) 01:46, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

What was wrong with {{cal}}? —CodeCat 17:20, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
@CodeCat: Hah, well for one, I didn't know it existed! I've always seen people type out {{calque}} in full, myself obviously included. But now that I do, I think {{cal}} is a bit too ambiguous (sounds like a calendar template), which may in part be why it isn't in wide use. --Victar (talk) 17:49, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
