PronunciationEdit

  A user suggests that this German entry be cleaned up, giving the reason: “This isn't a real adjective (at least in the example with "mehr Essen", with mehres, mehrem it might be different): 1. It's "mehr Essen" not "mehres Essen" (strong/mixed neuter nominative/accusative ending -es). 2. It's "mehr Essen" without article; "mehr nahrhaftes Essen" is also possible; but "nahrhaftes mehr Essen", "das mehr Essen", "ein/kein mehr Essen" aren't possible. This has to be addressed somehow. Maybe by changing the POS, adding a note, splitting "mehr Essen" and mehr with mehres, mehrem into two different POS?”.
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) or the talk page for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
