Broom icon.svg A user suggests that this entry be cleaned up, giving the reason: “In the head it's "aliquis c", in the flection table there's "aliquis / aliqua", thus there's a contradiction. Though: Various grammar books might have various opinions, some just have aliqus / aliquid (neuter sometimes with res in some cases), some have it as aliquis / aliqua / aliquod.”.
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) or the talk page for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
