A very simple (copyable) templateEdit
This shows the most fundamental elements of an article: its language, its origin (etymology) the part of speech, the word itself, and at least one definition. The example is for a word with a single meaning. Finally there can be a link to the corresponding word in any number of other Wiktionary versions.
When a user has clicked on a "broken" link to reach a blank edit box ready to create a new article, he or she may copy the seven or eight lines between the tags onto any new page and start typing to fill in the gaps and/or change the wording (and double the brackets in the interwiki tag).
<!-- this is solely for English nouns --> ==Ingarihi== ===Take=== ===Kupu ingoa=== [[en:] <!-- placed here for ease of copying from below and adding second bracket --> '''word''' # [[meaning]] [[category:reo Ingarihi]
(Similar models can be made for the other parts of speech and other languages)
(from Te Matatiki)
Additional meanings or parts of speechEdit
For a second meaning, just add another line starting with "#". For a second part of speech, repeat the group:
===Kupu ingoa=== '''word''' # meaning
