    Thank you for the report! This sense is missing from the English side. We will forward the message to the English team and they will consider adding it.

    *The sense in question is specificity as used in statistic. Thanks!

    I think this is the sense as used in medical testing (here). We do already have this meaning in the English base, but it may not have made it into English to Greek yet. You should see it appear in the future.

    If that's not what you meant, then can you be more specific(!), as I can't find anything else linked to statistics?

    Thank you! Yes, that's what I meant. I tried to not be restrictive by mentioning statistics, as I am not sure whether this term could also be used in non-medical settings. (I should have checked Enbase before forwarding this - will do so from now on.)

    Thanks - and no problem. I didn't know this sense myself, so I just wanted to double-check it was definitely the one you were after. And it's absolutely fine to forward these reports to me to check the enbase if you want to.
