Description Dejan Papež 2006-05-16 11:43:35 UTC
For Slovenian Wikipedia and other Slovenian wikiprojects it would be very useful if 
the software allowed for: 

Entering up to five sentence forms functionally linked (as parameters of a magic 
word) with different numbers displayed by a chosen variable (or any "$n") that 
generates a number.

Description of the system with an example: 

In the Mediawiki:Sitestatstext message (or on any other page) the following sentence 
forms would be entered for the variable NUMBEROFFILES:

* one form for the number 0
* one form for the number 1
* one form for the number 2
* one form for the number 3
* one form for the number 4
* one form for the number 5; this form would be used also for any other higher number 
up to and including 100
* Then the cycle should start anew - repeat itself from the second form = the one 
used for number 1 - onwards. The form for number 0 should be used only once: for 
number 0.

I imagine these sentence forms and the chosen variable would be entered as parameters 
of a magic word (like 'plural' or something) and then displayed accordingly to the 
autogenerated number they are linked with and the rules described above. The solution 
should also allow entering less than five forms as they are not always different.

Reason:

Slovenian language has three grammmatical numbers (singular, dual, plural) and six 
grammatical cases. These are obligatory for nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives. See
