Groeg yr Henfyd: {{{1}}}

Documentation icon Dogfennaeth nodyn[gweld] [golygu] [hanes] [puro]

Superscript text Mae'r Nodyn hwn ar gyfer tagio Groeg yr Henfyd yn unig – ar gyfer Groeg modern, defnyddiwch {{Iaith-el}}. Ceir hefyd Groesg Canoloesol ar en - ond nid oes erthygl arni yn y Gymraeg.

The primary objective of this template (and of the other {{lang}} templates) is to tag non-English text so that both human and machine readers are able to properly interpret, display and understand non-English text as part of an effort to move towards a semantic web. To that end, proper use of these templates help web browsers to choose the correct display font, text-to-speech screen readers to select a more appropriate pronunciation, search engines to better index and relate the context of the content, translation services to properly interpret the words, spell checkers to properly allow and/or require diacritics, and so on.

Important metadata


Regardless of the label that is displayed in front of the text (i.e.: "Ancient Greek:" vs. "Greek"), this template will always wrap the supplied Ancient Greek text inside of appropriate HTML <span>...</span> tags – that is to say that the Ancient Greek text will be tagged using the ISO 639-2 and ISO-639-3 language code for Ancient Greek: "grc". The following example wikicode:

{{lang-grc|ἄτομος|átomos|indivisible, an atom}}

produces the following HTML:

<a href="/wiki/Ancient_Greek" title="Ancient Greek">Ancient Greek</a>:
<span lang="grc" xml:lang="grc">ἄτομος</span>
<span title="Ancient Greek transliteration" class="Unicode" style="white-space:normal; text-decoration: none"><i>átomos</i></span>
"indivisible, an atom"

This metadata identifies the enclosed text as Ancient Greek for the benefit of search engines, browsers, screen readers, translators, typesetters, and so on. To these "non-human readers", Ancient Greek (encoded as "grc") has important distinctions from Modern Greek (appropriately encoded using "ell", "gre" or "grk" by other {{lang}} templates). For that reason, this template should never be used with Modern or Medieval or other Greek text.


|Nodyn:Var – using the Greek polytonic alphabet (with diacritics). (mandatory) – must be the 1st field
|Nodyn:Var – the same text, transliterated using Latin alphabet (see Romanization of Greek). (optional) – must be the 2nd field
|Nodyn:Var – in English. (optional) – must be the 3rd field


Code Result
{{lang-grc|ἄτομος}} Nodyn:Lang-grc
{{lang-grc|ἄτομος|átomos}} Nodyn:Lang-grc
{{lang-grc|ἄτομος|átomos|indivisible, an atom}} Nodyn:Lang-grc
{{lang-grc|ἄτομος| |indivisible, an atom (lit: 'that cannot be cut')}}  Nodyn:Lang-grc
