This template is only for dictionary definitions that currently exist on Wiktionary and which, due to previous re-creations, are likely to be re-created in unencyclopedic form. Do not place it on every possible word. This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopaedic content.

{{wi}} {{subst:longcomment}}
Provides a soft redirect to the Wiktionary page, using the current page's name. Then it also substitutes a {{longcomment}} to prevent a page from being listed on Special:Shortpages.
Important: Check the link before using this method, as Wiktionary uses proper capitalization for its entries, unlike Wikipedia's uppercased first letter or page name.
{{wi|{{PAGENAME}}}} {{subst:longcomment}}
Provides a link to the Wiktionary page for the given word.
{{wi|Category:English idioms|many=yes}}
Used for pages linking to lists or categories on Wiktionary.


  1. This template should not be used via substitution in most cases.
  2. This template will categorise tagged articles into Category:Redirects to Wiktionary.
