Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopedic content.

Usage[edit]

This template should be used in articles where a term is used that lacks definition, so that is unclear what is being referred to when using the term. This requests that a definition be provided, so that the meaning of the sentence can be ascertained.

{{Definition needed|date=October 2018}}

This template will add the article tagged to Category:Wikipedia articles needing clarification or a monthly subcategory thereof.
