This is a documentation subpage for Template:Plural.
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.
To view the template page itself, see Template:Plural.

This template allows easy formatting of statements of the form "# thing(s)", with correct use of plurals. It uses the "plural" magic word, so ideally it should work with minimal modification for other language.

edit Syntax

  • {{plural|number|name}}
  • {{plural|number|singular name|plural name}}

edit Examples

For most English nouns, the plural is formed by adding "s" to the end of the singular form. If that is the case, only one "name" parameter is required:

  • {{plural|0|page}} returns "0 pages"
  • {{plural|1|page}} returns "1 page"
  • {{plural|2|page}} returns "2 pages"

For plurals that require adding "es", or more unusual forms, the singular and plural forms must be specified explicitly:

  • {{plural|0|ox|oxen}} returns "0 oxen"
  • {{plural|1|ox|oxen}} returns "1 ox"
  • {{plural|2|ox|oxen}} returns "2 oxen"

edit Notes

  • While {{plural|#|sheep|sheep}} is valid, it is also fairly pointless.
