 Hey there,

 Thanks for creating this ticket and welcome to trac!

 I think you mean ''terms'', not ''taxonomies'', though. You'd want to get
 the parents of a specific term. Basically, a taxonomy is a way to group
 things together. The names for the different groupings in a taxonomy are
 called terms. 'category' and 'tags' are the two default taxonomies in

 This means the function should be called something like
 `get_term_parents()`. A `$taxonomy` parameter is not needed, as a term ID
 is unique and we can get its taxonomy name from there. That's why the
 `$taxonomy` parameter is optional for `get_term()` as well.

 Besides that, would you mind creating a proper patch with your suggested
 changes? See https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/tutorials/working-
 with-patches/ for more information.
