Template for the table:

Present:
Gloss Sereer Gloss Sereer
I ... -aam we ... i[mut]- -a
you ... -aa you (pl) ... nu[mut]- -a
s/he ... -a they ... a[mut]- -a

To highlight individual cells in a paradigm, mimic the code here. For instance, let's say we want to highlight the fact that plural verb stems undergo consonant mutation, and we like blue. We paste the code style="background: blue; color: white" | (note the stem at the end) into the beginning of the cell:

Present:
Gloss Sereer Gloss Sereer
I ... -aam we ... i[mut]- -a
you ... -aa you (pl) ... nu[mut]- -a
s/he ... -a they ... a[mut]- -a

Interlinear Glosses

Documentation for the glossing package is here:

http://wiki.migmaq.org/index.php?title=Wiki_gloss_extension

The template for interlinear glossing is below:

  1. mexe waʄnaa foofi 
    me-xe waʄ-n-aa foofi 1s-COP boil-CAUS-PROG water
    'I am boiling water. (045)'

The example below lacks an unparsed first line. Note that the position of \gll determines which line starts aligned glossing. \trans effectively ends this command.

  1. me-  xe    waʄ   -na   foofi'    
    1SG  CONT  boil  CAUS  water     
    'I am boiling water. (045)'

Now you can refer to example (1) like this. This creates a hyperlink!


(The method below should be avoided for the method above.)

To make an interlinear gloss, the code below is a start.

Unparsed content Unparsed content Unparsed content Unparsed content Unparsed content
Morph 1 Morph 2 Morph 3 Morph 4 Morph 5
Gloss 1 Gloss 2 Gloss 3 Gloss 4 Gloss 5
Free translation Free translation Free translation Free translation Free translation

An example of usage:

mexe waʄna foofi'.
me- xe waʄ -na foofi'
1SG CONT boil CAUS water
I am boiling water. (045)
