Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is for use in articles about languages or dialects. It provides a common standard for displaying data about a language.

Usage

This template accepts the following parameters:

name
name of language #REQUIRED
altname
additional name of the language
nativename
native or a second additional name
pronunciation
IPA pronunciation of the native name
acceptance
questionable acceptance/status of the language: unattested, spurious, etc.
state
country in which it is mainly spoken
region
geographic region in which it is mainly spoken
latd
latitude degrees
latm
latitude minutes
latNS
latitude direction
longd
longitude degrees
longm
longitude minutes
longEW
longitude direction
ethnicity
people for whom this is the ethnically native language; also good for the ethnic population if different from the number of speakers (although the names chosen for the articles on the people and on the language will generally be the same, it may be appropriate to pipe in the native name of the people here)
speakers
{{sigfig|number of native speakers/signers|2}}
date
date of estimate of number of speakers/signers (must start with a 4-digit year: see next)
dateprefix
any text wanted inside the parentheses before the date; a space ( ) must be explicitly included at the end
era
era of use of a historical language, such as one that developed into something else; 'speakers' will not display
extinct
date of extinction, or information about extinction; 'speakers' will not display
revived
Date and/or population of attempted revival of extinct language
revived-category
optional name (without "Category:") of appropriate subcategory of Category:Language revival (which is used by default if |revived= has a value); or nocat to suppress categorization
ref
reference for the number of speakers/signers. Appears after the (date) field.
speakers2
2nd line (2nd estimate, 2nd country, L2 speakers, etc.)
familycolor
appropriate language family #REQUIRED
See table below for list of options. Please do not use other names, because they will not be recognised, and the table will be colored grey.
In most cases, 'familycolor' will trigger a default entry for the 'fam1' field, so that field is not necessary (you can continue will 'fam2'), but you can override this by entering something under 'fam1'. For areal colors (American, Khoisan, Paleosiberian, etc.), you will be prompted for a 'fam1' entry if you do not provide one. If 'isolate' or 'unclassified' is used, the fam1–xx tree will not display.
fam1
the broadest possible widely accepted language family of which the language is a part
fam2
a more specific sub-family
...
fam15
most specific sub group
family
whatever you want to say; fam1–xx will not display
ancestor
ancestral or reconstructed forms
ancestor2
...
ancestor5
intermediate forms
protoname
alias for ancestor
creator
name of language creator
created
year of first creation
setting
the use or setting for a created language
posteriori
natural-language sources of a created language
dia1
...
dia20
primary dialects
dialects
whatever you want to say
stand1
a standardized register
stand2
a second standardized register
...
stand6
sixth standardized register
standards
whatever you want to say
script
the writing system(s) used for the language by literate speakers
sign
signed forms (manually coded language)
nation
list of countries in which it is an official language
minority
list of countries in which it is a recognised/protected minority language
agency
regulatory body or language academy for the language
iso1
the ISO 639-1 code for the language
iso2
the ISO 639-2 code for the language (not for its family)
iso2b
the ISO 639-2 bibliographic code
iso2t
the ISO 639-2 terminological code
iso2comment
for comments to not interfere with the link
iso3
the ISO 639-3 code for the language.
Field will display even if left empty, unless 'lc1' etc. is used.
Use 'none' if the language (not dialect) has no iso3 code, and the article will be added to Category:Languages without iso3 codes.
Use 'linglist' if it has an iso3 code, but this is maintained at Linguist List instead of at SIL. Add the code itself under |linglist=
(This is not necessary if the SIL page provides its own link to the Linguist List page.)
iso3comment
for comments to not interfere with the link
isoexception
a maintenance field to organize cleanup categories (see below).
currently excludes article from general missing-ISO category if set to 'dialect', 'historical', 'protolanguage', or 'talkpage'.
lc1
ISO code of the first dialect (the 'iso3' field will not display if empty and this is included)
ld1
name of the first language dialect
lc2
ISO code of the second dialect
ld2
name of the second language dialect
...
lc30
ISO code of the 30–th dialect
ld30
name of the 30–th dialect
iso6
the ISO 639-6 code for the language.
linglist
a private or local Linguist List ISO 639-3 code or substitute for an ISO code; use xxx-xxx format for dialects.
Use for code range qaa–qtz or those involving numerals only; enter other codes under 'iso3' and the reader will be redirected from Ethnologue.
lingname
comment on the Linguist List code or support
linglist2
linglist3
additional Linguist List codes
lingname2
lingname3
additional comments. (If Linguist List has redundant codes, write to them, and they will likely retire them.)
lingua
the Linguasphere code for the language
glotto2
...
glotto5
the Glottolog code(s) for the language
glottoname2
...
glottoname5
the Glottolog name(s) for the language; appears in both the info box and the footnote
glottorefname2
...
glottorefname5
the Glottolog name(s) for the language; appears only in the footnote
glottofoot
set to "no" to hide the Glottolog footnotes
guthrie
the Guthrie code for Bantu languages
aiatsis
the AIATSIS code for Australian languages (linked)
aiatsis2
...
aiatsis8
additional AIATSIS codes
aiatsisname2
...
aiatsisname8
name of code, if not that of the info box, or note to appear after code
ietf
IETF language tag
image
image at top of info box. Use format "image name.png", without "file/image" or brackets.
imagesize
override default image size (currently 200px). Use units ("123px", "12em")
imagealt
alt text for the image
imagecaption
caption to appear under image
imageheader
brief header for image (appears in the left-hand column)
map

mapalt
alt text for the map
mapcaption
caption to appear under map
map2
a second map
mapalt2
alt text for the second map
mapcaption2
caption to appear under both maps
boxsize
overrides default width of infobox, currently set at 22em. Format must include units ("12em" or "123px").
Useful when an article has various infoboxes aligned in a column. (Box will automatically expand to fix map wider than default box width.)
notice
notice2
IPA/ipa [adds notice for IPA notation], Indic [same for Indic scripts]

Placement

The template should placed at the very top of the wikitext of the article, before any text. The absolute basic syntax is as shown below:

{{Infobox language ← this calls the template
| name = name of language ← the name of the language needs to be given
| familycolor = appropriate language family ← refer to the coloured chart to the right (or above, depending on your browser), and type the name shown there; this will add the appropriate family color to the template top.8 Using "Altaic" or "Caucasian" etc. does *not* result in a claim that the language belongs to that family: think of them as areal codings.
}} ← this ends the template call

*If you enter "isolate", you will be restricted to a single line for the family. In order to allow levels of classification, as with dialects of a language isolate, enter "grey"/"gray" instead.

However, you will probably want to add more than just this. Other parameters are listed below, they can be incorporated anywhere between the first and last lines, and in any order.

Additional parameters

There are several more parameters that can be defined between the opening and closing lines. These are:

| altname = additional name of the language [not every one, but one a reader would be likely to look for]
| nativename = native name, or a second alternative name [most cases as of 2012 not actually the native name]
| states = countries in which it is mainly spoken (multigenerational communities) ← you do not have to define both this and region. Do not use flag icons except for national or official status (WP:INFOBOXFLAG).
| region = geographic region in which it is mainly spoken ← you do not have to define both this and states; use this parameter for a single statement about geographic distribution. It is not for the broader region where the states are located, but rather the regions within the country, or across countries, where it is spoken. (That is, do not add SE Asia if we state it's in Laos, or West Africa if we state it's in Mali.)
| speakers = the number of native speakers of the language. If unknown, enter ? and do not enter NA for the date. If no native speakers, enter none. Otherwise, if no date is supplied, missing date will be displayed. Use {{sigfig|...|2}} to round to 2 significant figures while retaining the exact figure from the reference.
| date = the date of publication of the estimate of the number of speakers.
Used for calculations for obsolete data, so needs to start with a 4-digit year. Exception: If NA is entered, nothing will display. If no date is entered, "no date" will display. Do not enter a date parameter at all if speakers is set to none.
Articles with old dates (currently ≥ 30 years) appear in Category:Language articles with old speaker data.
| ref = reference for the speaker data.
If e17 is entered, this will automatically generate a reference to the Ethnologue 17 article that bears the ISO 639-3 code entered at 'iso3'.
To link to the auto-generated reference from elsewhere in the article, use <ref name=e17/>.
e16 and <ref name=e16/> or e15 and <ref name=e15/> can be used to ref the 16th or 15th edition, for example for extinct languages which are no longer supported.
linglist and <ref name=linglist/> can be used to ref the MultiTree entry at the Linguist List.
ne2007/ne2010 and <ref name=NE100/> can be used to ref the Swedish national encyclopedia, which we use for many of the world's top 100 languages
inali and <ref name=INALI/> can be used to ref Mexico's Instituto Nacional de Lenguas Indígenas
Similarly, aiatsis can be used to link to the <ref name=AIATSIS/> ref generated by the info box for the AIATSIS entry for Australian languages. (For Glottolog and Maho's edition of the Guthrie list for Bantu languages, <ref name=Glottolog(2–5)/> or <ref name=Guthrie/> needs to be added manually, as they do not provide population data.)
| speakers2 = a 2nd line for speaker data, such as L2 speakers, appearing after the date.
If this is a second line of L1 speakers, it should be arranged so that, if there are two dates cited, the oldest appears in the date parameter, for automated update calculations. Data from different countries should not be added together if they are not comparable: say if one is from 1973 and another from 2006, or if one is rounded to the nearest million and another is on the order of 10,000.
| iso1 = the ISO 639-1 code for the language
| iso2 = the ISO 639-2 code for the language; creates a link to the ISO page ← see just hereafter for the situation where a language has two ISO 639-2 codes
| iso3 = the ISO 639-3 code for the language; creates a link to the ISO page ← see below for the situation where multiple ISO 639-3 codes apply; if there is no ISO 639-3 code, set iso3=none to return the text none and add the article to a list of uncoded languages (if iso3comment is also used, that will display in place of none)
Only iso3 will appear (with a dash) if the code is omitted. If a language has two ISO 639-2 codes, one will be defined as the bibliographic code, and the other terminological. These can be added in separate fields using the following parameters:
| iso2b = the ISO 639-2 bibliographic code
| iso2t = the ISO 639-2 terminological code
| lingua = the Linguasphere code for the language
| linglist(2,3) = the Linguist List code(s) for the language. May be a proper ISO code maintained at Linguist List, or a local non-ISO code; creates a link to the Linguist List page.
| lingname(2,3) = the Linguist List name for the language, or other comment
| glotto(2–5) = the Glottolog code for the language. Generates a reference which can be accessed via name="Glottolog(2–5)". Enter "none" if Glottolog does not have a code for the language, "spurious" if Glottolog uses that term. [future: also "unattested"]
| glottoname(2–5) = the names to be used for the Glottolog reference(s). If there is more than one box on a page, then you need a different-numbered parameter for each, in order to generate separate footnotes.
| guthrie = the Guthrie code for Bantu languages. Generates a reference which can be accessed via name="Guthrie".
| aiatsis(2,3) = the AIATSIS code(s) for Australian languages. Generates a reference which can be accessed via name="AIATSIS".
| aiatsis(2,3)name = the AIATSIS name, if different from the entry at |name=.
| iso3comment = allows a comment in the ISO field that will not interfere with the link
| isoexception = handles exceptions to the handling of missing ISO codes. Currently there are dedicated tracking categories for 'dialect' (variety of a language with an ISO code), 'historical' (ancestral form of a language with an ISO code), 'protolanguage', 'talkpage' (add to templates on talk pages and in archives so that they stop showing up in the tracking categories).
| ietf = IETF language tag

Genetic classification

You can use the language template to show the genetic classification of a language at a glance. This classification is displayed as a descending staircase of language families, from the broadest to the most specific. To add the genetic classification use the following:

| fam1 = the broadest possible widely accepted language family of which the language is a part ← if this would be exactly the same as you have defined for familycolor, it may be omitted
| fam2 = a more specific sub-family
| fam3 = a more specific group

You can keep adding parameters in like fashion until you have completed the classification. If you would prefer to enter some other information in this box (for example, disputed), use this parameter instead:

| family = whatever you want to say (sequesters the repetition of the name of the language)

This can be set to "na" to avoid specifying a family relationship at all, an for a geographical group that has no single origin.

Ancestral forms may be useful when we have an article on them, or when they have been assigned ISO codes:

| ancestor = an ancestral form, such as Old English or Proto-Basque
| ancestor2/3 = intermediate ancestral forms, such as Middle English or Aquitanian

Optional parameters

Some parts of the template remain invisible unless they are specifically called. Only use these parameters if they are required.

| fontcolor = colour of font against 'familycolor' ← the font colour is usually black, use this to change it if it is difficult to read
| pronunciation = pronunciation of the native name of the language in IPA → remember to enclose the transcription in an IPA template such as {{IPA-all}}
| nation = list of countries in which it is an official language
| minority = list of countries in which it is a recognised minority language. This is intended for legal protection and similar de jure recognition, not simply being listed on a census and other de facto recognition.
| agency = regulatory body or language academy for the language
| extinct = date of extinction, or information about extinction ← this replaces speakers
| revived = date and/or population of attempted revival of extinct language
| revived-category = (or | revived-cat = ) optional name (without "Category:") of appropriate subcategory of Category:Language revival (which is used by default if |revived= has a value); can be given as | revived-category = nocat to suppress the categorization entirely, when the language has a separate article about its revival that is already in the category (e.g. Cornish revival is in Category:Celtic language revival, so | is used in the infobox at Cornish language).
| era = era of use of an ancestral form of a language ← this replaces speakers
| script = writing system(s) used to represent the language ← in the form script (instantiation), such as "Latin (English alphabet)"
(Common variants of "Latin (alphabet)" redirect to Latin script. For the Latin alphabet itself, add an element such as &nbsp;.)

Language with more than one ISO 639-3 code

Some languages have a number of ISO 639-3 codes, one for each dialect of that language. If you try putting all of these codes in the usual iso3 = parameter, it will get quite messy. Instead, use the following parameters:

| lc1 = language code of the first dialect
| ld1 = name of the first language dialect

For subsequent dialects, use lc2 and so forth. Lc entries will be automatically linked to the Ethnologue site. Wikipedia articles on the dialects may be linked from the ld entries..

For languages with an ISO 639-3 macrolanguage code and several individual codes, use iso3 for the macrolanguage and lcn, ldn for the individual codes.

Constructed languages

This template is appropriate to use for constructed languages. The following parameters can be used:

| creator = name of language creator
| created = year of first creation
| setting = the use or setting for the language
| posteriori = natural-language sources

Using these parameters, or setting familycolor=Conlang, automatically sets the coloured bars of the infobox to black background with white fonts, and removes the states and region parameters from use (nation is also disabled). If the iso2 parameter is left undefined, it is treated as being iso2=art. For conlangs, the family or famn parameters are used to describe the hierarchy of purpose of the language, whereas posteriori is used to describe the a posteriori sources on which the conlang draws.

Images in the template

You should not put large images at the top of the language template: they just make it very messy. You can place a small image at the top of the template using the following parameters:

| image = image name.png
| imagesize = 100px ← overrides the default image size
| imagealt = alt text
| imagecaption = caption
| imageheader = very simple description of image ('logo', 'map', 'script', etc.) ← this is placed in the left-hand column, and so needs to be short

If you have a larger image or two, such as a map, you can place them at the bottom of the template, spanning both columns, with the following parameter:

| map(2) = image name.png
| mapsize = 300px ← overrides the default image size
| mapalt(2) = alt text
| mapcaption(2) = caption

The usual image markup applies for both images. Alt text is for visually impaired readers, and the caption is for all readers; typically they should have little in common (see WP:ALT).

Footer notice

A notice or notices may be placed at the bottom of the infobox:

| notice=ipa ← places a notice about the Unicode fonts used for displaying IPA

Error-tracking categories

With 8,000 articles, manual review is insufficient. The following automating tracking categories should catch some of the more common errors. They also produce lists of articles that should be reviewed occasionally, because they lack population data or the data is dated.
