[example needed]

[Edit] [🔄Purge] Template-info.png Template documentation

Use this template to indicate you believe an example is needed in an article, or that some line of reasoning would greatly benefit from an example. Strongly consider explaining why and how on the talk page.

It also adds articles to Category:Articles needing examples or a dated subcategory of it.


If there already is an example, just not one that meets your standards (in some way), use this template and explain in an edit summary or on the talk page. (There isn't a specific "Better example needed" template for when an example already exists but where you feel it should be improved)


Responding to the Presidential mandate, professional organizations began to support the effort via further promulgation of Decade of the Brain materials, and Decade of the Brain lectures became commonplace at annual meetings of prominent scientific communities.[examples needed]

Here the example editor likely thinks the article would be improved if at least some Decade of the Brain lectures were added. The talk page or edit summary may contain more.

The alveolar ejective fricative (sʼ) is used in Lakota language words.[example needed]

Here the example editor probably would like to see at least one Lakotan word that uses the alveolar ejective fricative. The talk page or edit summary may contain more.
