    • Done what I can do for the moment. The pos. suffix paradigms for even syllable nom and gen/acc prooved not to be precise enough in normative grammars, so we have made a kind of maximal paradigm based on the descriptive work of Harald Grundström and Juhani Lehtiranta. Now waiting for Trond to implement the new pos. suffix paradigm
      • The question whether the norm should be open or restrictive should be sent to SGL. Thomas will write a letter, which Maaren will put into the SD document archive and send out.
