Template:Pronoun

Template page
(Redirected from Template:P)


This template can be used to display the chosen pronouns (in English only) of any editor/user of this wiki. It can't be used for someone without an account here. Also note that the gender options in MediaWiki are epicene/fem./masc., and so "it", "one", and neopronouns are unavailable (more could be added but many, many system strings would need updating). Actually I think re-implementing this with metatemplate tricks, which would allow this to be used for people without an account, would also allow for arbitrary sets of pronouns. --yoshi

Usage: {{p|Username|case}}, where Username is a username without the "User:" prefix, and case is one of the below keywords. Consult the English Wikipedia for a refresher on English pronouns.

  • they for the subjective case (results in "he", "she", or "they")
    • equivalents: nominative, subject, subjective, sub, and he/she
  • them for the objective case (results in "him", "her", or "them")
    • equivalents: accusative, object, oblique, objective, dative, prepositional, obj, him/her, and him
  • their for the possessive determiner (results in "his", "her", or "their")
    • equivalents: genitive, possessive, pos, his/her, and his
  • theirs for the possessive pronoun (results in "his", "hers", or "theirs")
    • equivalents: genitive pronoun, possessive pronoun, poss, his/hers, and hers
  • themself for the reflexive case (results in "himself", "herself", or "themself")
    • equivalents: reflexive2, intensive2, himself/herself2
    • themselves for the reflexive case with the alternate epicene form (results in "himself", "herself", or "themselves")
      • equivalents: reflexive, intensive, and himself/herself

If omitted, the second parameter defaults to they, i.e. the subjective case.

Examples:

  • {{p|DummyAccM|them}} ⟶ him
  • {{p|DummyAccF|themself}} ⟶ herself
  • {{p|DummyAccNB|their}} ⟶ their
  • {{p|DummyAccM|they}} ⟶ he
  • {{p|DummyAccF|theirs}} ⟶ hers
  • {{p|DummyAccNB}} ⟶ they

The word can be capitalised with the {{ucfirst:}} magic word: {{ucfirst:{{p|DummyAccF}}}} ⟶ She

It can be changed by editing this page, but note that it's only the documentation (for the visual editor)—the actual template part must also be edited, manually.

Replaces a pronoun (in English only) with the equivalent that matches the chosen gender of any editor/user of this wiki.
