  1. Employing {{ME-ref|LROW|Etym(ologies)}} and {{subst:ME-cite|LROW|Etym(ologies)|<entry>}} provides easy references to The Etymologies, see the examples below
  2. Vinyar Tengwar is a journal series rather than a book, and requires additional parameters:
    • for ME-cite: |last=<last name of author of article>|year=<year published>
    • for ME-ref: |last=<last name of author of article>|first=<first name of author of article>|title=<name of article>|volume=<edition appearing in>|year=<year published>
  3. Template {{ME-cite}} supports a third parameter, to be used if it is desirable to link several times to a single note. If text of the <section> parameter is overlong, its inclusion into the note name can be suppressed by entering no as the third parameter.
