Documentation for this module may be created at Module:Separated entries/doc

-- This module takes positional parameters as input and concatenates them with
-- an optional separator. The final separator (the "conjunction") can be
-- specified independently, enabling natural-language lists like
-- "foo, bar, baz and qux". The starting parameter can also be specified.

		-- Decode (convert to Unicode) HTML escape sequences, such as " " for space.
		and mw.text.decode(args.separator) or ''
	local conjunction = args.conjunction and mw.text.decode(args.conjunction) or separator
	-- Discard values before the starting parameter.
	local start = tonumber(args.start)
	if start then
		for i = 1, start - 1 do args[i] = nil end
