Usage[change source]

This template is intended to be used for a short, but accurate, description of a given page devoted to a Grapheme. Along with this, the template also automatically attaches a content warning for IPA symbols (see above/to the side) and a category tag for Category:Graphemes, both for technical measures. Below is the full Syntax for the template and the options for various parameters. Above/To the side is the transclusion of the template itself, with its parameters' values substituted for their respective italicized names in code.
