grc-adj-3rd (grc-adj-3rdm, f; third declension

{{grc-adj-2nd}} and {{grc-adj-3rd}} generate headword lines for Ancient Greek adjectives whose forms are in the second or the third declension respectively. Module:grc-headword and Module:headword process the parameters and create the displayed text.

In these adjectives, there are two forms: the common (masculine and feminine) form and the neuter form. Both forms are in the same declension. For example, ἀληθής (alēthḗs) has a masculine and feminine form ᾰ̓ληθής (alēthḗs) and a neuter form ᾰ̓ληθές (alēthés); both are declined in the third declension. ἄδικος (ádikos) has a masculine and feminine form ᾰ̓́δῐκος (ádikos) and a neuter form ᾰ̓́δῐκον (ádikon), both of which belong to the second declension.


Numbered parameters[edit]

The two possible numbered parameters are the headword and the neuter form. They must be Greek characters, or in the case of the neuter, a hyphen (-) indicating the form is unattested.

The headword is only allowed if the title contains vowels whose length is ambiguous – the monophthongs α, ι, υ (a, i, u) without macrons, breves, circumflexes, or iota subscripts (◌̄, ◌̆, ◌͂, ◌ͅ). The neuter is required.

Named parameters[edit]

|head=, |head2=, |head3=, ...
|n=, |n2=, |n3=, ...
Neuter forms.
|deg=comp, |deg=super
Degree of comparison. Only allowed in {{grc-adj-1&2}} and {{grc-adj-3rd}}, because no comparatives or superlatives belong to the first-and-third-declension class of adjectives. |deg=comp indicates that the adjective is a comparative) and |deg=super indicates it is a superlative. A category will be added, but the displayed text will not change.
