Template:IPA link


50px Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

The template {{[[:Template:IPA link#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.IPA link]]
}} create a wikilink from an IPA symbol to the respective phonetic article. IPA link displays the bare IPA symbol. Showing IPA defined brackets like "/…/" is an input option.

The conversion list, from symbol to article name, is not defined in this template, but inherited from {{IPA symbol}}.

{{[[:Template:IPAalink#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.IPAalink]]
}}, {{[[:Template:IPAblink#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.IPAblink]]
}} and {{[[:Template:IPAslink#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.IPAslink]]
}} are earlier versions with defined angular "", square "[…]" or slash "/…/" brackets, respectively.



(Note: showsymbol= does the same, but it is deprecated.)

Direct page

The target page can be set (overridden) by using direct page:

{{IPA link|ʘ|<}}⟨[[tenuis bilabial click#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.ʘ]]⟩
{{IPA link|ʘ|direct page=Bilabial clicks|<}}⟨[[Bilabial clicks#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.ʘ]]⟩
Error situation

If the IPA symbol is not defined in the {IPA symbol} table, then an error message is returned.

{{IPA link|pʰɪk}}Error using {{IPA symbol}}: "pʰɪk" not found in list

The latter is normally more an example of accidental misuse than intentional use, or it could be a sign that a symbol is missing from the {{IPA symbol}} table.

Option "showsymbol" deprecated (use label= or a second unnamed parameter, preferably)

The template can take the extra input like showsymbol=A, and then display that symbol, while also linking to the appropriate article. The symbol to be shown can also be the second unnamed parameter.

{{IPA link|m|showsymbol=Anytext}}[[bilabial nasal#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.Anytext]]
{{IPA link|ɽ͡r|showsymbol=*}}[[retroflex trill#REDIRECTmw:Help:Magic words#Other
This page is a soft redirect.

Option name

The name=yes parameter provides a display of the name of the phoneme (a function of {{IPA symbol}}) to the right of the displayed symbol for the phoneme, as shown in the example below:

Full parameter list

In the short form:

{{IPA link
| name      =
| errortext =
| showsymbol=

Equally, the longer including optional names:

{{IPA link
| ipa symbol= <!-- or 1st unnamed parameter-->
| label     = <!-- or 2nd unnnamed paramter -->
| bracket   = <!-- or 3rd unnamed parameter -->
| name      = <!-- yes/no -->
| errortext =
| showsymbol= <!-- deprecated, use label= -->

Known issue

  • The output should be enveloped in {{nowrap}}.
