Stem variants in comparative vocab table[edit]

We list some stem variants for Finnic nominals, where this is an important feature. They are listed for verbs as well, though here most classes of verbs are not underspecified in their basic forms the way e.g. Finnish syli can be the nominative of both syle- "fathom" or syli- "bosom".

I recently added stem variants also for the Samic words for "to pee", to make clear that they are verbs and not nouns. However for consistency's sake, should we perhaps also:

  1. indicate stem forms for the other Samic verbs as well?
  2. list the citation forms for Mordvinic/Mari/Permic as well? E.g. for "to go", Mari miješ (mija-), Komi mynyny (myn-).

I'd be happy listing just the actual stems for verbs, but from past experience, this seems to attract editors who then inconsistently correct one or two entries to their citation forms. --Trɔpʏliʊmblah 15:37, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
