Hello again,

1. I'm not sure about these messages in libkdeedu.pot. Can I translate
these adjectives and nouns as those in msgstr? (Adjectives alone don't
make sense here in my language.) 

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:71
msgid "irregular"
msgstr "Irregular verb"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:128
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:203
msgid "Name"
msgstr "Proper noun"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:137
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:202
msgid "Question"
msgstr "Interrogative word"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:142
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:205
msgid "Definite"
msgstr "Definite article"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:143
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:206
msgid "Indefinite"
msgstr "Indefinite article"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:144
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:194
msgid "Regular"
msgstr "Regular verb"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:145
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:196
msgid "Irregular"
msgstr "Irregular verb"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:146
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:209
msgid "Possessive"
msgstr "Possessive pronoun"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvockvtmlcompability.cpp:147
#: keduvocdocument/keduvocwordtype.cpp:210
msgid "Personal"
msgstr "Personal pronoun"

It would be nice if all these messages have context so they will not be
used for other meanings, especially "Name" and "Question".    

2. Is the ! in these messages really wanted? 

#: keduvocdocument/keduvoccsvwriter.cpp:48
msgctxt "@item:intable the title of the document will be written here"
msgid "! Title:"

#: keduvocdocument/keduvoccsvwriter.cpp:49
msgctxt "@item:intable the author will be written here"
msgid "! Author:"
