Template talk:ru-noun

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


The vote on nonbolding of non-Roman characters pertained to, IIRC, certain scripts that do not fare well under bolding, such as Chinese and Japanese, and other scripts that can only be reasonably bolded if you have the bold font installed, such as Thai and Ancient Greek. Both Russian and Modern Greek bold just as readily as Roman. While italicizing Cyrillic can be confusing, there is no reason not to bold Cyrillic in cases where the Roman would be bolded. —Stephen 11:39, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

I missed the vote but I can't imagine why would anyone be against bolding Cyrillic characters, especially when so far Russian entries were boldened using {{infl}}. I am going to bolden {{ru-noun}} again, unless someone complains about this specifically. --Vahagn Petrosyan 18:06, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

g argument[edit]

This template does not seem to accept the argument g=p, nor does it accept g=m|g2=p. In дамы и господа, it needs g=p (without gender identifiers). —Stephen (Talk) 11:44, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

I can add g=p, but for g=m|g2=p, could you use g=mp? — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 16:23, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
Well, that works, but sometimes some users are writing g=m|g2=p, then they don’t notice that it doesn’t work right. I just changed часы from g=m|g2=p to g=mp because it had been left that way. —Stephen (Talk) 21:00, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
That can be fixed pretty easily by bot, but I'm a bit retarded in that area so if someone like Conrad or Ullmann were asked to fix that... They'd probably do a better job of it. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 00:07, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Stephen, thanks for fixing часы, my mistake. Will follow this discussion. If this is not changed, will try to be more careful and follow the parameters that work. --Anatoli 04:57, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
The reason I'd be hesitant to add g2 is that there are words with multiple genders, and I don't want to have to add up to g4=... So I advocate using mp, fn, mf and that kind of stuff, even though {{infl}} uses g= and g2=... — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 05:59, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Why don't these templates automagically add interwiki-links to the corresponding entries in the Russian Wikislowar?[edit]

Please explain that to: --IM Serious (talk) 10:18, 12 September 2012 (UTC) who is too dumb to master all this <noinclude> and #ifmacro magic!

Because not all Russian entries here have corresponding entries on Russian Wiktionary...for example, крем для бритья. We have a number of different bots that check whether an entry here has corresponding entries on other Wiktionaries and, if there are, they add the interwikis. —Stephen (Talk) 11:44, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Great, thank you Stephen for those satisfying answers! Bots can of course automatize this equally well to template code and thanks to whomever parents them: --IM Serious (talk) 14:51, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Singular-only forms[edit]

Why are the same abbreviations used for nouns that have both singular and plural, and those that only have singular forms? --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 10:42, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Can you explain what you mean by "abbreviations", or give an example of them? —Stephen (Talk) 16:51, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
m-an and others. Anyway, I've discovered that I'm supposed to use "-" for such cases. --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 16:55, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Error on missing gender[edit]

ложные срабатывание is currently showing an error because the gender wasn't specified. I think this is a mistake. Rather than showing an error, it should just show a question mark and gender request, which Module:headword supports. —CodeCat 14:06, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
