Usage in articles[edit]


{{nihongo|English spelling|Japanese spelling|Romanization}}

All arguments are mandatory, however the final argument can be empty.

If no romanization is given the English spelling is taken to be the romanization, and it's not displayed by default.

If you want to use this template as the article title in an article lead, keep in mind that the bold markers (''') are wrapped around the entire template call, like this:

'''{{nihongo|Manga|漫画|}}''' is the
[[Japanese language|Japanese]] word
for [[comics]] and/or [[cartoons]] …

This will display as:

Manga (漫画) is the Japanese word for comics and/or cartoons
