{{{1}}} {{{2}}}

This template allows easy formatting of statements of the form "# thing(s)", with correct use of plurals. It uses the "plural" magic word, so ideally it should work with minimal modification for other language.

Syntax[संपादन]

  • {{plural|number|name}}
  • {{plural|number|singular name|plural name}}

Examples[संपादन]

For most English nouns, the plural is formed by adding "s" to the end of the singular form. If that is the case, only one "name" parameter is required:

  • {{plural|0|page}} returns "0 page"
  • {{plural|1|page}} returns "1 page"
  • {{plural|2|page}} returns "2 page सभ"
  • {{plural|-1|page}} returns "-1 page"
  • {{plural|-2|page}} returns "-2 page सभ"
  • {{plural|0.5|page}} returns "0.5 page सभ"
  • {{plural|1.5|page}} returns "1.5 page सभ"
  • {{plural|-0.5|page}} returns "-0.5 page सभ"
  • {{plural|-1.5|page}} returns "-1.5 page सभ"

For plurals that require adding "es", or more unusual forms, the singular and plural forms must be specified explicitly:

  • {{plural|0|ox|oxen}} returns "0 ox"
  • {{plural|1|ox|oxen}} returns "1 ox"
  • {{plural|2|ox|oxen}} returns "2 oxen"
  • {{plural|-1|ox|oxen}} returns "-1 ox"
  • {{plural|-2|ox|oxen}} returns "-2 oxen"
  • {{plural|0.5|ox|oxen}} returns "0.5 oxen"
  • {{plural|1.5|ox|oxen}} returns "1.5 oxen"
  • {{plural|-0.5|ox|oxen}} returns "-0.5 oxen"
  • {{plural|-1.5|ox|oxen}} returns "-1.5 oxen"

Notes[संपादन]

  • While {{plural|#|sheep|sheep}} is valid, it is also fairly pointless.
