Description Denis Jacquerye 2006-12-04 18:55:06 UTC
Mediawiki currently includes any suffix attached to a link as part of the link
label, e.g., [[link]]s gives ''links'' as the link label.
However, prefixes don't benefit from that behaviour, e.g., ba[[link]], is
rendered as ''ba'' affixed to the link ''link''.

Some languages use prefix for inflection, for example Lingala has a prefix ba-
for many plurals. ba[[táta]] (plural of táta) should look like a link to [[batáta]].
