Things that still don't work with module:grc-pronunciation[edit]

Pre-velar nasals:

φᾰ́ρῠγξ
 

Something or other with capitals and accent marks:

ᾍδης
 

Could we possibly fix it so that it accepts the diacritic order length mark + (breathing mark) + accent mark like the rest of the entries instead of (breathing mark) + accent mark + length mark? Sorry to pester so much, but we are soooo close, and I dislike the old template sooo much. —JohnC5 05:41, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Also, the dative plural here seems to be freaking out:

You're the best! :)JohnC5 06:20, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

φάρυγξ and ψίξ are fixed. ᾍδης is an upstream bug with PHP ([1]). I'll look at changing the input format later; I may want to just rewrite the module (it's kind of spaghetti.) —ObsequiousNewt (εἴρηκα|πεποίηκα) 19:19, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for these. I had tried in the past to comprehend the module, and I kept getting bored every time I tried. I certainly agree that it could be far more parsimonious and easier to edit. —JohnC5 19:25, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

πρεσβύτερος[edit]

Hi ObsequiousNewt. As I'm sure you know, πρεσβῠ́τερος is the comparative form of πρέσβῠς and, therefore, doesn't have its own comparative form (AFAIK). My use of {{grc-adecl|πρεσβῠ́τερος|πρεσβῠτέρᾱ}} in its entry autogenerates the comparative *πρεσβῠτερώτερος, the superlative *πρεσβῠτερώτᾰτος, and the adverb *πρεσβῠτέρως, none of which should be there (again, AFAIK). Is there any way to tell {{grc-adecl}} that it's declining a comparative or superlative form and, therefore, shouldn't be generating those other degrees? — I.S.M.E.T.A. 19:41, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
