As a rule[fontem recensere]

As a rule, when Vicipaedia gives paradigms, they should be accurate! Of the twenty forms given in the present paradigm, four were not. (Even as the table stands, it leaves out the possibilities of vostrum & vostri; add a footnote?) IacobusAmor 11:57, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)

I think you mean vestrum and vestri...I think I have fixed the table by including an additional column for the adjectives forms.--Rafaelgarcia 12:45, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)
No, before making the initial posting, I checked Allen & Greenough #143, which gives four forms for the genitive, in this order & manner:
vestrum, vestrī; vostrum (-trī)
Presumably, that's the order of frequency of use, with the parenthesis implying some rarity, but other interpretations are possible, especially in view of the semicolon. IacobusAmor 13:05, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)
Maybe the least confusing thing would be to give it in a footnote, since I think they may be rare forms. All the tables I have, only give vestrum, presumably because it is the standard form.--Rafaelgarcia 13:18, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)
Words gives the following:
vestr.i              PRON   5 3 GEN P C                 
[XXXBO]  
vestr.um             PRON   5 3 GEN P C                 
[XXXBO]  
vostr.i              PRON   5 3 GEN P C                 
[XXXDO]    lesser
vostr.um             PRON   5 3 GEN P C                 
[XXXDO]    lesser
So apparently the colon means "lesser" for less frequently used.--Rafaelgarcia 13:24, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)

Is, ipse, etc.[fontem recensere]

Does Vicipaedia give paradigms for these words? IacobusAmor 13:12, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)

It should but its not on our pronomen demonstrativum page. Also our pronomen page is a total mess!--Rafaelgarcia 13:16, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)
Whoa! You can say that again! But I don't have time to get into it today. Work beckons. Oh well. IacobusAmor 13:23, 30 Iulii 2008 (UTC)
