文档图示 模板文档[查看] [编辑] [历史] [清除缓存]



This template is used inline in article prose or in tables and lists to indicate that the text in the first parameter is in the Old English language (also known as Anglo-Saxon). It automatically italicizes the content by default as something other than Modern English.

{{lang-ang|1=|Old English content here}}

The |1= part is optional, if the Old English content does not contain the character "=".

For subsequent occurrences in the same page, the link to the language name should be turned off with |l=n or |link=no:

{{lang-ang|1=more Old English content here|l=n}}

The name of the language can be forced to the linguistics term "Anglo-Saxon" instead of the literary term "Old English", with |as=y or |as=yes:

{{lang-ang|1=Anglo-Saxon content here|as=y}}

This should only be done in contexts where the term "Anglo-Saxon" has more currency than "Old English" or where it may otherwise be inappropriate (e.g. discussion of use of Anglo-Saxon in what are today Wales and Scotland, which are not part of England).

For subsequent occurrences in the same passage (e.g., a series of Old English to Modern English translations) it may be helpful to also abbreviate the language name display with |abbr=OEng, |abbr=OE, or |abbr=A-S:

{{lang-ang|1=another Old English example here|abbr=OEng}}

Doing so automatically also disables the link, as if |l=n had been specified. Using this parameter overrides the |a= parameter.

Dialects and phases can be indicated simply by prepending their names, linked or not:

  • [[West Saxon dialect (Old English)|West Saxon]] {{lang-ang|1=West Saxon content here}}
  • [[West Saxon dialect (Old English)|West Saxon dialect of]] {{lang-ang|1=West Saxon content here|a=yes}}
  • Late {{lang-ang|1=Late Old English content here}}

Such variants are not independently supported with their own lang-xxx templates.
