Usage[edit]

Basic examples[edit]

Adding the block "Letter X with diacritics"[edit]

  • When the parameter is "A" (or À: with or without diacritics), the block is added "Letter A with diacritics"
  • {{Latin alphabet|A}}

Adding the block "Letters with diacritic ^"[edit]

  • When the parameter has a diacritic e.g. Â, the block "All letters with diacritic ^ (circumflex)" is shown.
  • When the parameter "show diacritic=" is set, that block will show: {{Latin alphabet|A|show diacritic=grave}}
  • {{Latin alphabet|A|show diacritic=circumflex}}

Adding the block "Pairs with Letter X"[edit]

  • When the parameter is a straight letter A-Z, the block with letter pairs is shown.
  • When the parameter show pairs=yes/no is set, the pairs will show/hide accordingly:

{{Latin alphabet|À|show pairs=yes}}

More options[edit]

  • When the parameter show diacritic 2= is used, a second block of diacritics will be shown:
  • {{Latin alphabet|A|show diacritic=grave|show diacritic 2=circumflex}}
