Adjective[edit]

Broom icon.svg A user suggests that this Ancient Greek entry be cleaned up giving the reason: "The nominative singular, that is the regular masculine nominative singular, of Περσικός is Περσικός. The regular feminine nominative singular of Περσικός is Περσική and the neuter one is Περσικόν.
So which nominative of Περσικός is Περσίς, as it does not equal any of the regular nominative singulars? Which gender does it have? Is it a contraction? Is it somewhat irregular?
LSJ states that Περσίς is "pecul. fem. of Περσικός", i.e. "peculiar feminine of Περσικός"? But how, in which way "peculiar"?
Even if no explanation can be given, compared with LSJ at least the gender, that is a "feminine" in front of "nominative singular", is missing."
