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

This template is designed to illustrate ethnic names with divergent variants for the people, nation, and language, as are commonly found in Bantu and other African languages. It takes between one and five parameters.

Minimal example[ᱯᱷᱮᱰᱟᱛ ᱥᱟᱯᱲᱟᱣ]

ᱢᱟᱹᱱᱢᱤMotswana
ᱦᱚᱲBatswana
ᱯᱟᱹᱨᱥᱤSetswana

At a minimum, the template requires three parameters, for a person, the people, and the language, as below and at right:

{{Infobox ethnonym|person=Motswana|people=[[Tswana people|Batswana]]|language=[[Tswana language|Setswana]]}}

Full example[ᱯᱷᱮᱰᱟᱛ ᱥᱟᱯᱲᱟᱣ]

Tswana
ᱢᱟᱹᱱᱢᱤMotswana
ᱦᱚᱲBatswana
ᱯᱟᱹᱨᱥᱤSetswana
ᱫᱤᱥᱚᱢBotswana

If a fourth parameter is added, it will show up as the country. A fifth may be used for the root word as a title for the box:

{{Infobox ethnonym|person=Motswana|people=[[Tswana people|Batswana]]|language=[[Tswana language|Setswana]]|country=[[Botswana]]|root=Tswana}}

If the fourth parameter is left empty, the 'country' row will not appear, even with a title in the fifth slot.
