You've made a couple of mistakes with accentuation in your entries. For example on βλῆμα, the circumflex can't be on the antepenultimate syllable, nor can it be on the penultimate if the ultimate is long. Ancient Greek accentuation is remarkably tricky and complicated, and I've made a great many mistakes with it (and likely continue to do so, from time to time), so please don't beat yourself up about it. But if you could try and be a little more careful, and please feel quite free to ask me any questions you might have, as I'm more than happy to answer them (that is, if I know the answer :-)). In any case, I've fixed those made thus far. Cheers. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 05:45, 9 March 2012 (UTC)Reply
