@Moebeus, Andrew Gray:


How about trying to model these as forms with lexemes?

I noticed yesterday that we have plenty of "starší" (senior) in English labels: Special:Search/starší haswbstatement:P31=Q5.

Please help complete the samples. (Add your motivation for this property here.) --- Jura 14:10, 23 February 2020 (UTC)


  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Do a search for "den yngre" (Swedish for "the younger/junior" or "den äldre" (Swedish for "the elder/Sr.") and you'll get quite a few hits. A lot in Spanish also. I'm all for some better modelling of this👍 Moebeus (talk) 17:06, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
    • @Moebeus: Thanks: I added that to the samples above. --- Jura 08:43, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Sure. Are we thinking of putting given and surnames generally into Lexemes too? I think there are a few already, but not sure we have a consensus on that... ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:34, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
