Weird derivation...[edit]

OK, opening up my trusty lexicon we have...mekistos/μηκιστος - 'longest/tallest' or 'very long' (a superlative from mēkos/μηκος - length) and...cholas/χολας 'intestines' or 'bile' (?!) cheers, Casliber (talk · contribs) 12:13, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Ahaaaaa - just read the article. very funny cheers, Casliber (talk · contribs) 12:14, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

GA review[edit]

I've signed up to review this, I've a busy week or two coming up what with Christmas etc, but I'll do asap. Jimfbleak (talk) 14:58, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

First quick read through. Obviously not much needed here, but two first thoughts.
  1. Many of the sentences are single clause, and the short sentences make for less than flowing reading, especially in the description section, where almost every characteristic seems to have its own sentence
  2. pharyngeal teeth needs a gloss - I'm not sure what it means without looking it up, and I've a scientific background
Jimfbleak (talk) 16:07, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
I've worked on sentence structure a bit in the lead and description sections. I've also added a definition for pharyngeal teeth into the article. Are there any other improvements that can be made? Oh, and thanks for taking on the article so swiftly after it was posted. Rufous-crowned Sparrow (talk) 16:37, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
