The Josa extension automates josa (it's pronounced as /dʒo:sa/ or /ʨo:sa/) part of Korean postposition process.

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Josa in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php :
    wfLoadExtension( 'Josa' );
  • Yes Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.24 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'Josa' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/Josa/Josa.php";


  • {{#functionname: word }}
  • {{#functionname: word | argument }}
  • {{#functionname: word | argument 1 | argument 2 }} 1.30+

The function will be one of below:

English and other languages korea
EulRuel 을를
EunNeun 은는
EGa 이가
GwaWa 과와
AYa 아야
Euro 으로

A Josa function call without any option will be rendered to the word and a josa. Some special characters are automatically ignored.

  • {{#EunNeun: 한글}}한글은
  • {{#EulRuel: 위키백과}}위키백과를
  • {{#EGa: '비타민'}}'비타민'이
  • {{#과와: 미디어위키}}미디어위키와
  • {{#아야: 지원}}지원아
  • {{#이: 정민}}가정민이가
  • {{#으로: [[학업]]}}학업으로
  • {{#으로: 100%}}100%으로
  • {{#EulRuel: 글자 Ñ}}글자 Ñ를 (bug)

It is OK that the case in given word is written in English alphabet or ends with a number.

  • {{#EulRuel: DNA}}DNA를
  • {{#EunNeun: ATM}}ATM은
  • {{#Euro: 119}}119로

But other letters will add parenthesis:

  • {{#EulRuel: 직원(3명)}}직원(3명)을(를)

Sometimes results a bug:

  • {{#EulRuel: 國語}}國語을

Argument must be one of those:

Argument Alias Description
josaonly 조사만 Just render a Josa, the given word will be removed. {{#EunNeun: 한글|josaonly}}
override=foo 덮어쓰기, 오버라이드 Replace the Josa with the given text. {{#EulRuel:시약 100g|override=을}}시약 100g을

The order of the arguments is not matter.

MediaWiki 1.29 or earlier

If second argument is 0, the base word will be removed.

  • {{#EulRuel: 한글|0}}

Any other argument makes base word remain. Technically, PHP determines whether the value is true or not. So 'false' is true, See more examples:

  • {{#EulRuel: 한글|false}}한글을
  • {{#EulRuel: 한글|true}}한글을
  • {{#EulRuel: 한글|1}}한글을
