{{Etymology:{{{1}}}}}

Contents

Template:Etym is used to transclude Etymology on all relevant articles.

Usage

To use the template, enter in the name of the relevant page in Etymology namespace that applies to the title of the article in an "Etymology" section, as so:

==Etymology==
{{etym|<etym name needed>}}

For example, on all pages named Black Magic, an Etymology:Black magic page is created, and then displayed on pages with:

{{etym|Black magic}}

which produces:
Black magic has traditionally referred to the use of supernatural powers or magic for evil and selfish purposes. With respect to the philosophy of left-hand path and right-hand path, black magic is the malicious counterpart of benevolent white magic.

For pages with multiple etymology titles, more than one etymology template will be needed, with a space in between. For, for Kefka Palazzo's page:

{{etym|Kefka}}

{{etym|Palazzo}}

which produces:
"Kefka" may derive from Kurt Koffka, a German psychologist who worked on the Gestalt psychology. Another possibility is Franz Kafka, known for his stories based around hopelessness whose writings are considered existentialist.

"Palazzo" is a common last name of Italian descent and means "palace", "mansion", or "castle". The word can also be cut to the adjective pazzo, the equivalent of "insane". Its pronunciation is similar with the word palhaço, which means "clown" in Portuguese.
