This template is designed for use in the reference section of a language article. It links to the appropriate article at Ethnologue.

{{Ethnologue17|xyz}} (or {{E17|xyz}})

Replace xyz with the ISO 639-3 code for the language. A second, optional parameter is accepted:


Replace ABC with wording for the template to display, thus:

ABC reference at Ethnologue (17th ed., 2013).

If this parameter is omitted, the page name will be used, thus:

Ethnologue17/doc reference at Ethnologue (17th ed., 2013).

Specifying the wording may be useful if the Ethnologue name differs from the page name of the Wikipedia article. If no parameter is supplied, the template will revert to a generic citation and link to Ethnologue, though a pipe is still required, thus:

Lewis, M. Paul, Gary F. Simons, & Charles D. Fennig, eds. (2013). Ethnologue: Languages of the World (17th ed.). Dallas, Texas: SIL International.CS1 maint: uses editors parameter (link).


For a reference to the Ethnologue population figures, enter "e17" in the ref parameter of the language infobox. This will autogenerate a reference based on this template, and is easier for other editors to update.

  • {{Ethnologue16}}, for references to the previous edition.
  • {{Ethnologue15}}, for references to the edition before that.
