Hi there. I had noticed your edits, and assumed that you know what you are talking about. Some edits are a little encyclopedic for a simple dictionary definition, but I have left them as is. Here are some welcome links ... SemperBlotto (talk) 08:21, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Yes, I agonised for ages of the eutectic entry. I realise that a complete definition would be way beyond the requirements of Wiktionary, but at the same time I did not want to leave something that was in some ways wrong. I didn't really succeed. In the end I tried to get close enough to its original meaning, although these days it really only is used according to its fairly strict thermodynamic definition(s).--Alloy730 (talk) 12:09, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
  • and in relation to monotectoid, it is such a rare beast that I can't imagine anybody ever needing a simplified definition of it.--Alloy730 (talk) 13:02, 11 February 2013 (UTC)--Alloy730 (talk) 13:02, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
