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.

Syntax[golygu cod y dudalen]

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

Examples[golygu cod y dudalen]

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 page"
  • {{plural|1|page}} returns "1 pages"
  • {{plural|2|page}} returns "2 {{{4}}}"

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 ox"
  • {{plural|1|ox|oxen}} returns "1 oxen"
  • {{plural|2|ox|oxen}} returns "2 {{{4}}}"

Notes[golygu cod y dudalen]

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