Your recent edits[edit]

Hi, thanks for the your recent Dutch etymology edits. Please note that you can use the {{etyl}} and {{term}} to denote etymological relationships (it's preferred in fact). An example of such usage is shown in vracht. JamesjiaoTC 12:36, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Unattested forms[edit]

The thing with comparative linguistics is that it's all hypothetical. Who's to say what's related to what? Mglovesfun (talk) 16:33, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

spatula[edit]

Since spatula is from a diminutive of Latin spatha, and this is already in the etymology, there is no reason to add it again for comparison. Likewise, since there is an English word spathe, there is no cause to appeal to Ancient Greek for comparison. --EncycloPetey 19:34, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

famous[edit]

The term infamous is not derived from famous. It comes from a separate Latin word infamosus. Your change of header has resulted in incorrect information on the page. --EncycloPetey 15:27, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
