Dialects in etymologies[ännern]

Wiktionary uses a small number of exceptional codes to represent specific varieties of languages in etymology sections. Some may be deprecated.There is little consensus on how to code dialects in etymologies and etymological categories. Currently, Wiktionary uses codes similar to those from Webster's 1913 dictionary, and stores them in templates prefixed with etyl:.
