EAK - a further update

As I've been working on verbs I've realized that the middle voice and,
probably some passives uses as well will be expressed by using
reflexives. εαυτό /Eaw'tO/ seemed awkward, especially with the initial
/E/ followed by a diphthong. (Oh for something simpler like the Romance
reflexives). I've decided to adopt the simpler αυτό /aw'tO/ and the
reasons for this are given on an updated version of the Pronouns page:

I have also added more explanation and examples of possessives. Also I
noticed that the several examples of αγάπα /a'gapa/ had been wrongly
accented as αγαπά (this was a left over from an earlier, now abandoned
verb derivation scheme). This has now been corrected.

Work is steadily progressing on the second verb page.

Entia non sunt multiplicanda
praeter necessitudinem.
