Deletion debate[edit]

Keep tidy.svg

The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.


It's unused. The template uses CSS try swap one type of content for another. This causes problems for some views (browsers, gateways, and applications). See related BP discussion. We should be able to use links or hover-text to get our message across. Note there's a related declaration in Mediawiki:Common.css. --Bequw τ 17:50, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

An experimental template from 2007 which isn't used. Delete, feels like we're on safe ground here. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:58, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Deleted. --Bequw τ 22:19, 26 July 2010 (UTC)


The final noinclude doesn't have a closing tag @CodeCat. I don't think that's an issue, but the entire site is bugging out for me, especially at pitar - I see Template:documentation being transcluded everywhere. —Aryamanarora (मुझसे बात करो) 00:27, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Language code?[edit]

What is the purpose of the language code?

If the label adds something to a category (e.g. transitive verbs), it ensures it is the correct language category (e.g. English transitive verbs). Equinox 09:02, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

So it should be the language code of the entry, right? If so, please update the documentation to clarify this.

Categorisation of terms[edit]

@CodeCat, TheDaveRoss Can anyone help?

  • Using "archaic"" - places the term in "Category:Lang terms with archaic senses"
  • Using "obsolete"" - places the term in "Category:Lang terms with obsolete senses"
  • Whereas "dated"" - places the term in "Category:Lang dated terms"

Is this correct behaviour? — Saltmarshσυζήτηση-talk 11:27, 22 October 2016 (UTC)

call senseid with "grammar" as parameter[edit]

before: {{senseid|ru|grammar}}{{lb|ru|grammar}}; after: {{lb|ru|grammar}}

other options are possible, but this one is the most useful d1g (talk) 07:29, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

How can you be sure that there is only one sense labelled "grammar"? —CodeCat 12:25, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Examples / documentation[edit]

This seems to be sorely lacking to me.. I don't understand this at all. I can link to Australia, slangs and transitive. Some pages seem to indicate I could link or have the category for things like accounting or acting, but that doesn't seem to work at all. It seems like this would be useful if you could just put any word in somehow, like {{lb|en|WP:money|slang}} (WP:money, slang) to have it link to the Wikipedia page for money but that doesn't work either. Am I missing something? W3ird N3rd (talk) 11:00, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Categorization for the "outside" label[edit]

Currently, this template includes the entry in the regional category for every region mentioned, regardless of a preceding outside label. So, for example, the following code:

# {{lb|pt|except in|Brazil}} [[chamber]]

…would include câmara in the Category:Brazilian Portuguese. I think such behavior is correct and, I assume, deliberate. Why should we restrict the regionalism category to additional senses, excluding absent senses ?? @Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV: thinks it "doesn’t make sense,"[ed. 48272469] though. So, how should this template behave?

  1. As is; (ie., absent and additional senses get categorized together)
  2. put it in separate category; or (something along Category:Portuguese words with senses absent in Brazilian Portuguese, or so…)
  3. don't categorize at all. (ie., disable regionalism categorization whenever outside is found)

Thanks, --Usien6 (talk) 17:15, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

A better solution would be to tag the sense with the places where it is used (i.e. (Portugal, Africa) rather than (not in Brazil)). The current tag is better than no tag, but care should be taken so that sense isn’t added to Category:Brazilian Portuguese (which would indicate that the sense is only, or mostly, used in Brazil as opposed to all other non-tagged places).
You may want to propose the creation of categories for senses not used in a given place in the Beer Parlour. The existing regiolect categories are not a good place for that information as they stand. — Ungoliant (falai) 17:27, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

List of terms[edit]

I noticed some terms when input like "offensive" automatically link to that word, while others do not. Is this a list of options for what can be input there? Ranze (talk) 19:46, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
