Comoedici?[fontem recensere]

OK, sed comicus multo plures locos allatos in L&S habet quam comoedicus (et comoedus). IacobusAmor (disputatio) 11:43, 7 Iulii 2015 (UTC)

The English en:Category:Comedy troupes may help to justify this formulation. (I didn't check it before making this category, but have just found it.) It isn't "Comic troupes". This is a category for artists involved with a certain genre of performance -- comedy -- and that needs to be clear to the reader from its name if possible. "Grex" does not help (unlike "troupe") because greges are groups of all kinds, not even limited to human, certainly not limited to performers. So the idea of performance needs to shine out clearly from the other word. I probably thought then, and I think now, that it shines out more unambiguously from "comoedicus" than it does from "comicus". Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 19:44, 8 Iulii 2015 (UTC)
