Let's say that I'm trying to write a Greek/English flash card program using Visual Basic and an Access database. And let's say that in this program, I intend to group words in the database together in a fashion that makes a modicum of sense. For example, the words:<br /><br />[face=SPIonic]<br />lu/w, lu/eij, lu/ei, lu/omen, lu/ete, lu/ousin<br />[/face]<br /><br />would be grouped together under the first person singular [face=SPIonic]lu/w[/face].<br /><br />And [face=SPIonic]i(/ppoj, i(/ppe, i(/ppon, i(/ppou, i(/ppw|[/face], etc., would all be grouped together under the nominative singular [face=SPIonic]i(/ppoj[/face].<br /><br />Is there a proper term that describes both nominative singular declensions and first person singular conjugations? Base? Root? None of these seem quite right.<br />
I, Lex Llama, super genius, will one day rule this planet! And then you'll rue the day you messed with me, you damned dirty apes!
