Template:Reconstruct

{{{1}}}

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

This template is intended to mark a portion of a text, page or work where a word or phrase has been transcribed based on context, given that it is potentially missing from the scan (due to clipping or other technical issues.) as opposed to be being truly unreadable (see also {{illegible}}).

UsageEdit

{{reconstruct|phrase}}

where phrase is the phrase that has been added, guessed or reconstructed based on context.

The optional second parameter can be used to provide more detail about the reconstruction:

* O Romeo, Romeo, {{reconstruct|wherefore|Poor imprint, but can be reconstructed from other editions.}} art thou Romeo?
  • O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

ExampleEdit

Code Output
