When adding translations tables to articles remember to add the rest of the table tempates ({{trans-mid}} and {{trans-bottom}}) as well as {{trans-top}}. --Williamsayers79 07:11, 14 July 2008 (UTC)


Hello, I noticed you had created template, and I would like to discuss it with you. I would really prefer that we not have it, for a few reasons. The basic grc verb inflection template is {{grc-verb}}. The problem with your template is that it really cannot handle the variety which is present in Ancient Greek verbs. Ultimately, we are trying to cover all of the Ancient Greek language, including Attic, Koine, Byzantine, Ionic, Epic, Doric, Cretan, etc. Between all of these different times and places, such a formulaic method will ultimately fail to account for the variability in all but a few verbs, where {{grc-verb}} can. Your thoughts? -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 20:57, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Hello, I know it can't cover the whole variability of the ancient greek verbs but perhaps it could make a little simplier to write some verbal forms (which are obviously not all but also not so few). Anyway if you mean that the problem is making the pages dedicated to the greek verbs as homogeneous as possible in terms of source-code and templates I can't say you aren't right when you prefer the all-inclusive grc-verb template. If this is not the problem I think they can just work in parallel--Gronk 21:18, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
What I'm saying is that your template can't do a proper job with most grc verbs (including ὁρίζω, wait a few minutes and you'll see why). And, to be honest, I'd prefer not to have it at all, as I think it will discourage editors from adding all the forms, something we dearly want. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 21:24, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
Ok, take a look at ὁρίζω. Note that your template could not handle the irregular future (which is actually the dominant usage for this verb). Also, the accentuation on the aorist passive was incorrect. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 21:37, 20 July 2008 (UTC)
