Extended guide

Use this template to show the inflection line of an English singular noun.

This template shows the noun in bold (optionally linking its components) and its plural inflections, if any.


If the term has uncountable senses, the template can indicate whether the term is sometimes or never countable. Specifying - as the first parameter indicates that a term is uncountable, and no plural is shown by default. If it may occasionally be used as countable, specify the plural form after it.


Specifying ~ instead indicates that the term is used more or less equally as countable and as uncountable, and uses the default plural.


In entries for English plural-only nouns, use {{en-plural noun}}:

{{en-plural noun}} 
{{en-plural noun|head=[[bcl-png./Christmas|Christmas]] [[bcl-png./lights|lights]]}} 
{{en-plural noun|head=firework}}


If the noun forms its plural by adding -s, no parameters are necessary. E.g. on "word":


The above code displays as follows:


word (plural words)

If the noun forms its plural by adding -es, specify that, e.g. on "march":

march (plural marches)

If the noun forms its plural by changing its ending (e.g., by dropping its -y to add -ies) or by any other means (e.g. on "mouse"):

ally (plural allies)
erratum (plural errata)
mouse (plural mice)

Likewise, if the noun is identical in the plural, but still countable, specify it, e.g. on "Abkhaz":

Abkhaz (plural Abkhaz)

If the noun is uncountable, use "-", e.g. on "awe":

awe (uncountable)

Similarly, on "beer" and "geometry":

beer (countable and uncountable; plural beers)
geometry (countable and uncountable; plural geometries)

If the noun has multiple plural forms, use more numbered parameters, e.g. on "octopus":

octopus (plural octopuses or octopi or octopodes)

Pluralia tantum

If the word is a plurale tantum (always or usually used in the plural only, such as scissors or cattle), then use {{en-plural noun}} instead.
