Template:Definition needed



文档图示 模板文档[查看] [编辑] [历史] [清除缓存]

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopedic content.


This template may be used in articles where a term is used that lacks definition and it is unclear what the term refers to.

{{Definition needed|date=2024年2月}}

This produces:


This template will add the article to Category:Wikipedia articles needing clarification or a monthly subcategory thereof.

See also[编辑]

  • {{Definition}} – when multiple definitions or meanings exist, or there is no consensus definition or meaning
  • {{Disambiguation needed}} – for the special case where the term needing clarification is wikilinked to a disambiguation page, and you are unable to find a suitable replacement link.
  • {{Ambiguous}} – for ambiguous statements
  • {{Clarify}} – for other text that is difficult to understand

Use {{Definition needed}} in the body of an article as a request for other editors to add a definition to text that assumes familiarity with a term. When the problem is not with [[WP:jargon]] or technical terms, but simply with the wording, one may use {{Clarify}} instead. For dealing with dubious information, please use one of the following: {{citation needed}}, {{Verify source}}, {{Dubious}} or {{Disputed inline}}; otherwise, {{Explain}} may be a good choice,



Title1 title reason

A brief reason for the tag. Because it may not be immediately apparent to other editors what about the tagged passage is in need of further explanation, a brief reason is generally helpful. The reason parameter displays when the mouse cursor is placed over the text the template inserts.


An optional date parameter that records when the tag was added. If this template is added without the date parameter, the date parameter will be added soon after by a [[WP:BOT|bot]].
