Visual cue that an item is an affix rather than a stem?


#1

Looking at my dictionary entries on LF, I notice that there are no leading or trailing hyphens to show that an element is an affix rather than a stem. Is there a way to get something like that to appear? I want to visually differentiate the entry “a” (a verb meaning ‘to do’) from the entry “-a” (a nominalizing suffix). I can tell them apart by reading the gloss/definition, but I can’t distinguish them by simply scanning down the list of entries. They both appear as “a”.

Hi Kevin,

This is a good question. Language Forge doesn’t currently support relations or complex types like affixes. They will likely be supported in a future version - I don’t know which one though.
