verb profici

Post by spqr » Thu Sep 19, 2019 7:02 pm

I thought this might be the present passive of proficio but this verb has no passive so I looked at the paradigms of similar verbs but no luck. What verb does it belong to? Is it a syncopated form?

It is the present infinitive passive of proficio.

This is what I thought at first but I consulted wiki but wiki said this verb has no passive forms. I guess wiki is not so reliable.

Try logeion instead, which has also a morphological tool.

Yeah, it's not. Think of it as a largely unfinished but constantly improving work (even if its improvements sometimes come about slowly).
