Template:Detect singular

From The Kodiak Republic Wiki


Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

Template:Detect singular is used to detect possible lists and is a useful tool for infoboxes, where the label may be singular (e.g., "Nickname:") but the data may be a list.


Returns 1 if not a list, nil if a possible list.


Parameter Description
1 Required. The data to search for a list.


There are four named arguments that control the pluralization:

  • |no_comma= By default, commas (or semi-colons) will cause the text string to be considered plural. Setting |no_comma=1 turns this behavior off.
  • |any_comma= By default, commas (or semi-colons) that are adjacent to digits are singular. Setting |any_comma=1 turns this behavior off.
  • |no_and= By default, "and" causes a string to be plural. Setting |no_and=1 turns this behavior off.
  • |parse_links= By default, wikilinks are considered to be unparseable (singular) objects. Setting |parse_links=1 will allow the parser to read the contents of the wikilinks and determine whether that makes the string plural.


To force a particular result, place {{Force plural}} or {{Force singular}} within the text.
