Defined at:


Translates and retrieves the singular or plural form based on the supplied number, with gettext context.

This is a hybrid of _n() and _x(). It supports context and plurals.

Used when you want to use the appropriate form of a string with context based on whether a number is singular or plural.

Example of a generic phrase which is disambiguated via the context parameter:

printf( _nx( '%s group', '%s groups', $people, 'group of people', 'text-domain' ), number_format_i18n( $people ) );
printf( _nx( '%s group', '%s groups', $animals, 'group of animals', 'text-domain' ), number_format_i18n( $animals ) );
