I am also on IRC! If I am there it is a faster way to contact me!

I'm not really inclined to work on Wiktionary. I worked in Ancient Greek on the pointless task of transcribing entries from a better source in nearly every respect, to a worse one. I'm not a fan of the templates or the votes either, but that was the main reason. I've found much more worthwhile and productive things to take up my time.

Wiktionary:Requested entries (Ancient Greek)

Category:Requests for attention concerning Ancient Greek (186)


Wen hier dem Herꝛn ſein Leben weÿht
vnd macht durch wahꝛen Glauben
ſein Hertz im Blute Jeſu rein
der ſchlaͤfft zu ſeiner Zeit
im Frieden ſanfft vnd ſelig ein.
Der Todt kan ihm den Troſt nicht rauben
den ihm ſein Gott verſpꝛicht,
Er wird auch ſterbend Jeſum ſchauen
im finſtern Todes Thal
iſt Jeſus ſelbſt ſein Stab vnd Licht
der fuͤhꝛt ihn in des Himels Saal
wie? ſollt ihm denn fuͤr'm Sterben gꝛauen.

  • Also: obsequious, newt
  • I'm an administrator since 12 Dec 2014. (verify)
  • I am one of the few frequenters of the IRC channel. It is often a faster way to contact me, but I try to answer talk page messages as quickly as possible.
  • *insert large and obnoxious {{MultiLicensePD}} here*

  • Finish adding dialforms to Module:grc-conj. (nearly complete)
  • Redo all Greek verb inflections.
  • Find a copy of Hesychius, and write an appendix.
  • Find a copy of the Glossaria, and write an appendix.
  • Figure out how to handle Hittite. There was a discussion about this a while back which was never really satisfactorily resolved. I figure the best solution is either (a) don't have a lemma, as per User:ObsequiousNewt/𒇷𒆷𒀸, or (b) follow Kloekhorst, just taking the first stem if there are multiple ones (I'd love to follow CHD, but CHD isn't really consistent about this, and moreover it's not complete anyway.) Of course, we could do both, now that I think about it.
  • Rewrite Module:grc-pronunciation
  • Finish sac-decl, and start writing sac-conj (?)
