in another forum, someone asked what's the future of "pancreas". It seems that it is either "pancreases" or "pancreata". One would expect the "Greek" plural to be "pancrea". Now I know that in the Byzantine times (don't ask me exactly when), the declension of "ÎºÏÎÎ±Ï‚" changed. What I am not sure is however if there was a non-Attic declension of the word that I am unaware of the followed perhaps the alternative declension of i.e. ÎºÎÏÎ±Ï‚. Well, to be exact, a friend asked and I just couldn't answer So I thought I'd better ask here.
