De Vamba rege recensere

Xaverius Neanderi s.p.d.

Thanks for your edits in the article on king Vamba and I had two coments about it. Firstly is about grammar, I understand all the edits except for the very last one, changing rexisset for regeret. As it is a ne clause, the verb has to go in the subjunctive and I used the pluperfect so it matche the rest of tenses in the sentence, and that is why I used rexisset. Why the imperfect?

The second matter is sort of related to what Rolandus was teling you above. Vamba had a {{latinitas}} template with non censa but with your edits, the grammar has been checked and you should have added {{latinitas|1}} which is "inspected once". The whole objective of the latinitas templates is to know the level of latinitas, so always remember to add the {{latinitas}} template whenever you create an article or rate the current {{latinitas}} when you do some edits!--Xaverius 08:47, 12 Iunii 2007 (UTC)Reply

If you say Vambam totonderunt ..., ne Vamba rexisset, that would imply a retroactive cancelling of his kingship ('lest he could not have been king' - kind of damnatio memoriae), but insofar as I understand, Vamba was poisoned in order to prevent him from continuing his kingship. If this is the case (as I surmise it is), ne regeret is the right form. (By the way, I suggest you say ne regeret instead of ne Vamba regeret This would be better stylistically.)
Thanks for pointing out this bureaucratic shortcoming of mine. Trying to be better every day even in these technicalities. And congratulations for the anniversary! --Neander 15:17, 12 Iunii 2007 (UTC)Reply

Salve Neander! Would I be right to say that -koski on the end of a Finnish city name would mean river rapids, in Latin Catarrhactes? and in an example such as Jämsänkoski would I translate it as something along the lines of Catarrhactes Iamsae? --Harrissimo 23:04, 14 Iulii 2007 (UTC)Reply

Hi Neander! I suggested Catarrhactes because William Whittaker said it was rapids. It's probably not a very suitable/widely used word though because it was in brackets at the end of the list. I posted something in the Taberna. I think you're probably right though about including non-latin letters if a source can't be found. --Harrissimo 21:30, 15 Iulii 2007 (UTC)Reply

Mathematica recensere

Neander. the reference you added does not seem to support the translation of the greek μαθηματική as 'disciplina (artium liberalium)'. Since the reference only gives an ancient latin definition of mathematics not necessarily what the greek word means, it would seem to be better included as a reference supporting Isidorus's desciption of mathematics. Indeed it only seems to repeat what Isidorus says, or vice versa. (Does it indeed mean in greek the same as in ancient latin?) I put Isidorus' description in an historic context in the second paragraph because to my knowledge no one in a modern context would ever consider either astronomy or music as part of mathematics. Thus, it only makes sense to consider this information in a plainly historical context.--Rafaelgarcia 01:40, 23 Octobris 2007 (UTC)Reply

De locis Finnicis... iterum recensere

Salve! Do you have the Lexicon Finnico-Latino-Finnicum? I saw that you quoted it on a talk page somewhere and I have a question about it. In the Luettelo Suomen alueiden latinankielisistä nimistä, it says that this is one of te two sources for these cities. Please could you confirm (or deny) which ones I can use here with this as a source - if you have it of course. Vale gratiasque! Harrissimo.

This Sala-Salo affair is quite strange. On the Carta Marina and the Gustavus Horn map both have "Sala" as a settlement imbetween Kokkola and Oulu! Either they have made a huge mistake or this isn't the right Salo. Then again this says that it is... Do you know of anywhere that it could have been mistaken for? Thanks for the help, Harrissimo.

IPA recensere

Salve! As you may know, Neander, there are two conventions: [ ] for phonetic and / / for phonemic transcriptions. So I did have a reason for using / /. However, you may be right that I didn't make the best choice. I'll change it. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 20:47, 10 Decembris 2007 (UTC)Reply

I have changed it. However, I notice that the English infobox en:Template:Infobox Language makes the same choice I did / /, no doubt for the same reason. We'll see if anyone else comments. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 21:17, 10 Decembris 2007 (UTC)Reply
Yes, the conventions are as you say: [...] for phonetic and /.../ for phonemic representations. But quite obviously it is phonetic representations that we're out for, the purpose being, I take it, to give an idea of how the name is to be pronounced. Basically, the purpose of phonemic transcription is to suggest the optimal orthography for a language lacking alphabetic writing (which seems to be out of the question in the present context). Martinus Neander 22:28, 10 Decembris 2007 (UTC)Reply
I agree, Martine, in this multilingual context it makes no sense to talk of a phonemic representation. Definitely [ ] is correct. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 10:06, 11 Decembris 2007 (UTC)Reply

Subregions recensere

Salve! Do you know of a suitable latinisation for the third-level subregions of Finland? I thought maybe subregio could be pushing it and there are various ways of expressing it in the other languages which all seem slightly different. The Swedish, Italian (distretto = pagus), German (Verwaltungsgemeinschaften ≈ Comitatus (which I don't like myself because it could make confusion with the old counties) ) or the no-nonsense Czech seutukunta are these ways. From w:en:World administrative divisions third level, you get the impression that most third-level divisions across the range are municipia (but that is, of course, Finland's fourth level). The one which aren't give Districts (districti, pagi), Arrondissements (arrotundimenta), Communes (communia) and Elderships (just weird). Quid cogitas? Harrissimo 02:18, 29 Decembris 2007 (UTC).Reply

I'm not too good in matters geographical and administrative, but having done some research, I've come up with the following:
Divisiones administrativae Finniae 532 sunt:
  • Provinciae 6 (provincia: Fin. lääni; Sv. län)
  • Regiones 20 (Regio: Fin. maakunta; Sv. landskap)
  • Regiones oeconomicae 74 (Regio oeconomica: Fin. seutukunta; Sv. ekonomisk region)
  • Communia 432 (Commune: Fin. kunta; Sv. kommun)

De tabula dialectorum Graecarum recensere

Noticing the improvements to the page Lingua Graeca antiqua I asked Harrissimo if he could improve the map of dialects, and he promises to work on it (see his talk page. So if you wanted to suggest to him how to letter it, or any other adjustments, now's the time! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 11:26, 17 Iunii 2008 (UTC)Reply

Been very busy a few days working on a paper. I now realise the map I inserted had German names for dialects. It would be nice indeed if Harrissimo could improve the map. As to how to letter the numbers, I suggest the following:
1-2: Aeolica || 3: Thessalica || 4: Boeotica || 5: Ionica || 6: Attica || 7-14: Dorica || 15-18: Caurina || 19-21: Arcado-Cypria.
Thessalica and Boeotica are of course Aeolic dialects, but because they're quite heavily mixed with NW dialects, it may be advisable to quote them by separate names. For "NW dialects", I use dialecti Caurinae, faute de mieux. I'm open for better suggestions. Martinus Neander 03:53, 19 Iunii 2008 (UTC)Reply

I'm having difficulties with some specific terms such as membership and elementhood. Do you have any opinions on how these could be properly rendered to Latin? Or I should I rather try consulting Rafaelgarcia on matters of technical terminology? Omnipaedista 19:19, 17 Decembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Χαῖρε, not being a mathematician, I feel almost total insufficiency in front of those abstractions. WRT "elementhood", I feel some temptation to say "elementitas, -atis" which is an unattested word, as far as I know. But because I favour dynamic translations, I'd rather see terms used in real sentences. For example, I snatced the following sentences (and edited them a bit) somewhere from the net: "Lavoisier's conception of elementhood is essentially the same as that of Mendeleev" which I'd render as "Lavoisier de natura elementorum reapse idem sensit ac Mendeleev." And "Lavoisier's conception of elementhood consisted of elements as simple substances and the rejection of elements as principles or basic substances" as "Lavoisier elementa intellexit simplices esse substantias eaque negavit principia esse vel substantias fundamentales." But maybe my translation loses some essential information? WRT "membership", the first word that comes into mind is "sodalitas" but I'm not at all sure about this loaded term. Maybe Rafael could indeed help? --Neander 20:59, 17 Decembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Sodalitas evokes personhood too; perhaps participatio would be better to catch the abstract sense of mere belonging; I like the way you avoid the abtract noun above, though. Ir would be better latin. --Rafaelgarcia 03:40, 18 Decembris 2008 (UTC)Reply

Italianus recensere

Dear Neander, I have changed again your sustitution of the verb Italicus with Italianus. Actually my dictionary gives for Italiano Italicus or Italus but never Italianus Castiglioni, Aloisius; Mariotti, Scaevola. Vocabolario della lingua latina, latino-italiano, italiano-latino. Quarta editio a Petro Georgio Parroni curata (Taurini, 2007).. Ciao--Massimo Macconi 18:24, 14 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply

Dear Massimo, I don't know the virtues of Castiglioni-Mariotti. Does it contain Neo-Latin vocabulary? Somewhat ironically, the article on Castiglioni-Mariotti is categorised as [[Categoria:Lexica Italiano-Latina]] and [[Categoria:Lexica Latino-Italiana]]. On the adjective Italianus, see this. And, by the way, the Lexicon Finnico-Latino-Finnicum by Reijo Pitkäranta does give Italianus. Vale, Neander 19:11, 14 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Italianus is also often used in the Latin periodical Ephemeris [1] --Fabullus 19:26, 14 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Massimo asked me to comment. It is true that older Latin does not seem to have the term Italianus, and a Google search for Italianus is not promising. However, if Ephemeris uses the word, we can permit ourselves to adopt it. In what senses, then?
The point was raised by Iacobus at Disputatio:Lingua Italica; in the discussion there, which turns on the likelihood of confusion with the ancient Linguae Italicae, I speculated on the acceptability of Lingua Italiana, and I can see the desirability of adopting such a name for the language.
Insofar as "adopting such a name for the language" entails the movement "Lingua Italica => Lingua Italiana", I fully endorse your desirability assessment. What worries me most is the homonymy that lacks a linguistic justification. --Neander 12:22, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply

Are you discussing also the appropriate term for Italian people? In that case, I feel doubtful whether there is a sufficient reason to change our usual term Italicus/Italici. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 21:10, 14 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Given that quite a few of those "Ephemeridan" examples brought forward by Fabullus refer to Italian people, isn't it a bit precipitate to trumpet "Italianus non est verbum Latinum"? Given the drowsy coexistence between Francicus, Francogallicus and Gallicus in Vicipaedia, it's a bit surprising that Italianus should turn out to be such a nomen odiosum. Interesting. --Neander 12:41, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
As I already agreed, you and Fabullus have shown that Italianus is now a Latin word; therefore not odiosum. But I think, for such words that are used very frequently in biographical articles, it may be wise to try to agree on a preferred form: do you agree, or do you prefer free variation?
As regards "French", I think we try to use "Francicus" for people and things, "Francogallicus " for the language; no doubt some of us are drowsier than others! As regards "German", I think we try to use "Germanicus" for people and things, "Theodiscus" for the language; and I know that some don't follow this rule. As regards Italian, I think we have been using "Italicus" in all senses. Iacobus and I have hesitantly proposed "Italianus" for the language. And actually, up to this moment, I don't know what you are proposing! All I know is that you made some changes which Massimo reverted. I must admit I don't understand the practical implications of "What worries me most is the homonymy that lacks a linguistic justification". Can you put it a bit more simply? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:20, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
I made corrections to a few articles, the Latinity of which hardly did credit to Vicipaedia. When doing that, I also happened to change "Italicus" to "Italianus", without realising that I was thereby stirring up something. Yes, Massimo reverted those changes. In fact, he did quite a lot of changes to articles which obviously also had "Italianus" (not from my pen). When watching this spectacle, nomen odiosum was the expression that offered itself as a descriptive term. /// Re practical implications, could we agree on lingua Italiana, when talking about the Italian language? If "Italianus" is too hot as an ethnonym, I'm the last to insist on using it in Vicipaedia. (If I get an irresistible prurience to use it as an ethnonym, I can always do it in Ephemeris ... :–) I'm all for the functional differentiation between "Francicus" and "Francogallicus" (of which I wasn't aware), which proves that no variation is free in the long run. --Neander 16:54, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Yes, I've now studied those pages -- and noticed numerous small improvements -- As far as I'm concerned, certainly I would agree on Lingua Italiana. As to Italianus as ethnonym, I don't see that it needs to be contentious. Never mind Ephemeris: write it here, Neander! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:09, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Could he mean that, in reference works, polysemy is bad? or that distinctions without differences are bad? I do like the distinctions between Francicus (the people) and Francogallicus (the language) and between Germanicus (the people) and Theodiscus (the language), and that's why I'd prefer to distinguish between Italicus or Italius or Italus (the people; see below, posted earlier), and Italianus (the language)—but in the real world, people apparently ignore such distinctions. Oh well. IacobusAmor 14:13, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
While agreeing with you, Iacobe, the thing I wish to emphasise is that I'm fond of polysemy and all the possibilities of expression that abundancy of forms in language affords. --Neander 17:08, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Oh, me too: we wouldn't have poetry, or even superlative prose, without it; but one feels the nagging worry that reference works may be a special case, in which significant precisions take pride of place. IacobusAmor 17:43, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
And let's remember that classically (secundum Cassell's) 'Italian' was Italicus, -a, um, and Italius, -a, -um, and Italus, -a, -um—so, with Italianus, -a, -um, we've got four possibilities. ¶ Also, for a noun, an Italian woman could be an Italis, -idis— so, Andrew, female Italian people could be Italides. :) ¶ For Austronesian languages whose names haven't previously been Latinized (or for which Latinizations exist but haven't been found), I'm using an -anus, -a, -um adjectival form of the indigenous name of the place; hence, Samoa est locus ubi homines lingua Samoana utuntur. IacobusAmor 22:09, 14 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
I think the issue is what to call the italian language: obviously the roman's never had a word for it since it didn't yet exist. So either you can go with the classical "lingua italica hodierna", because lingua italica is too abiguous, or your avail yourself with the neolatin "lingua italiana" (sort of a borrowing from Romance languages). Iacobus gives a good, fairly convincing account of the precedent for such a preference of italianus over italicus when referring to modern variant at the place Disputatio:Lingua Italica noted by Neander above. --Rafaelgarcia 14:26, 15 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply

De locativo nominum compositorum recensere

Salve Neander, in pagina de Alienora Roosevelt agente locativum "Novi Eburaci" scripsisti. Equidem iam diu dubito de locativis nominum compositorum. In libro grammatico meo legi locativo numquam adiectivum derecto addidi, sed hoc potius in appositione collocari, ut exempli gratia "Romae, in urbe pulchra". Liber meus nihil tamen dicit de casibus ubi adiectivum pars nominis sit, ut "Novum Eburacum". Ipse unum tantum exemplum antiquum invenire potui: "Carthago Nova", cuius locativus varie datur. Apud Suetonium inveni "Carthagine Nova", in Periochis Livii tamen "Carthagini Nova" aut "Carthagini Novae": editiones inter se differunt - ego nescio quae versio recta sit. --Fabullus 11:55, 27 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply

Qua insolentia (si est) animum confirmavi ad "Novi Eboraci" scribendum. Verumtamen recte videris de "Roma pulchra" praemonere, ne "Romae pulchrae" in locativo scribamus. Sed ne "Roma pulchra" nominativus quidem commendari potest, nam cum de propriis nominibus agitur, collocatio appositiva valere videtur: "Roma, urbs pulchra". Equidem tamen "Novum Eboracum" iudicarim fixam esse compositionem; id est: interest inter "Novum Eboracum" et "Eboracum, urbem novum". His dictis usque manet dubitatiuncula: Quonam modo Tullius noster de hac re iudicarit? Sint ut sunt, "Carthagini Novae" locutio illa a te allata optime videtur cum "Novi Eboraci" locutione congruere. --Neander 18:35, 27 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply

Dummodo illud "Carthagini Novae" ne sit commentum editorum recentioris aevi ... Aliane oppida, urbes, civitates scis quibus aetate classica nomina composita fuerint? --Fabullus 18:46, 27 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply
Siquidem "Novam Carthaginem" nomine composito, etiam "Novum Eboracum" dicere possumus. Quod ad locativum attinet, "Novi Eboraci" mihi peius non videtur quam "domi meae" locutio Tulliana (e.g. Fam. 10.25), quamquam facile concedo paene inusitatum esse locativis adiectiva attribui. Utcunque res se habet, iam dudum philologi recentioris aetatis consueverunt "Novi Eboraci" locativo uti, ut in recentioribus philologicorum librorum titulis apparet (si puta "Berolini et Novi Eboraci" googleitamus). --Neander 21:14, 27 Novembris 2008 (UTC)Reply

Gratias! recensere

Neander, thanks for your efforts on improving Gulielmum Wordsworth! Studying your changes is giving me great pleasure, as I learn at almost every turn. (After this project, we've got completely different sets of expected idioms in other long articles I've recently done: first Alanus Mathison Turing and then Polytheismus, whose English version contains phrases that hardly make sense in English!) A few errors, like typing eo for ei, would have been caught by almost anybody eventually, but many unidiomatic (though usually grammatical) expressions can be improved only by eruditi with deeper familiarity with the language than I have. ¶ One minor question: you changed valide instillavit to perseveranter inculcavit. I'd actually compared these verbs before posting the original draft, so I wonder why inculcavit is the preferable alternative. I chose instillavit because in Cassell's its example is praeceptum auriculis (which, if applied here, I'd take for "instilled [her] rules into [their] ears"), while the example for inculcare is se auribus nostris (which, if applied here, I'd take for "inculcated herself into our ears"). To instill precepts, rather than to inculcate oneself, seemed apter in the context, but maybe that's just an inaccuracy necessitated by the examples. IacobusAmor 15:15, 2 Martii 2009 (UTC)Reply

It's always rewarding to improve texts for people who know what they're doing and, thus, are able to learn from experience. ¶ When making the change, I was under the false impression that instillare contracts only nouns denoting liquids. Now I see that the verb can be used metaphorically as well. This being the case, the major semantic difference between praeceptum instillare animo and praeceptum inculcare animo is that the latter pictures the situation in stronger colours. There may be reason to cancel my change. --Neander 20:28, 2 Martii 2009 (UTC)Reply
Stronger is usually better, so let's leave it as you made it! Incidentally, the pertinent passage in en:William Wordsworth is rough & obscure: "Ann Birkett, a woman who insisted on instilling tradition in her students that included pursuing both scholarly and local activities"; for this we now have Anna Birkett, magistra quae praecepta ad industriam et academicam et quotidianam pertinentia discipulorum animis perseveranter inculcavit. ¶ I may have other questions later, but today is a busy day. Thanks! IacobusAmor 14:36, 3 Martii 2009 (UTC)Reply

Radiophonia et televisio recensere

Hallo Neander, ich habe gerade eine Kat für Hörfunk angelegt (Categoria:Radiophonia). Kannst du mal drüberschauen, ob ich alles richtig gemacht habe? Dazu zwei Fragen: Gibt es im Lateinischen einen Unterschied zwischen "Fernsehen" und "Fernseher" (Apparat), analog zu Radiophonia und Radiophonum? Und wie würdest du die Wissenschaft übersetzen, die sich mit Hörfunk und Fernsehen beschäftigt (Medienwissenschaft / simple:media studies). Danke & Gruß --Kolja21 14:28, 10 Aprilis 2009 (UTC)Reply

Salve Kolja, auf die Kategorienfrage kann ich leider nicht mit irgendeiner Auktorität antworten, weil ich kein Intresse gehabt habe, mich einen Überblick über unseres Kategoriensystem zu verschaffen. Gegen deine Kategorie habe ich jedoch nichts einzuwenden, möchte aber wissen, ob z.B. Usor:Andrew Dalby derselben Meinung ist. Deine erste Zusatzfrage ist leichter zu beantworten. Ja, es gibt einen Unterschied zwischen 'Fernsehen' (Televisio) und 'Fernseher' (Televisorium), nur verstehe ich aber nicht, warum der letztere auf den Artikel Televisio weitergeleitet worden ist, obschon Radiophonia und Radiophonum gebührendermaßen aus underschiedlichen Artikeln bestehen. Betr. Medienwissenschaft möchte ich etwas zögernd Studia communicatoria empfehlen. Gruß,Neander 08:01, 12 Aprilis 2009 (UTC)Reply

Danke für die Erklärung. Lesen müsste man können: "Instrumentum quod hos sonos imaginesque ostendit televisorium vocatur". Der Begriff steht ja sogar schon im Artikel, aber mein Schullatein ist etwas eingestaubt. Gruß --Kolja21 16:41, 12 Aprilis 2009 (UTC)Reply

Asking about a translation correctness recensere

Salve, Dr.Neader~ Recently I translated a Anglice motto 'Our path leads to the Kingdom.' to Latina as "Cursus Nostra Ad Regnum Caelorum Versus.", but I'm not sure whether it is applicable. So what's your sugestion..?

Gratias again for everything.. 119.123.8.47 07:04, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC) ..! It's me.. Gesalbte 07:06, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply

Nostra via in regnum ducit? ~ fert? IacobusAmor 12:44, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
Salve, Gesalbte. [I was just about to send this, but Iacobus was quicker.] Let's take morphology first: it should be "Cursus noster ad Regnum Caelorum Versus", because the gender of "cursus" is masculine. Notice that "ad ... versus" emphasises the direction: our "run" is to the direction of the Kingdom, or something like that. Because I do not know what this is all about, I'm not sure how "to" is to be understood. It may be of some thelogical importance, if you say "to the (gates of) Heaven" (in which case, the proper preposition is "ad") or "into the Kingdom" (through the gates, or something -- in which case, you should probably use "in" [+ accusative]). It may also be theologically significant, whether you say "Caeli" 'of the Heaven' or "Caelorum" 'of the Heavens', I don't know. But giving up hair-splitting, my proposal is: Noster ad Regnum Decursus. I prefer "decursus" which may better express the measures taken and the completion of a course. Hope this helps. --Neander 12:59, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
As your gloss recognizes, "the kingdom" in English doesn't mention any heaven, but the original post implies that heaven is in someone's mind; and since it's usually conceived as being upward, in the sky, I wonder if decursus, which basically means 'a running downward' doesn't put the wrong slant on things, so to speak. Also, your gloss is a noun-phrase, but the querist wants it to be a complete sentence, with a verb equivalent to 'leads to', for which Cassell's says classical attestations support ducit in + acc. and fert in + acc. IacobusAmor 13:43, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
Yeah, having posted my reply I became aware of the fact you now make me aware of. Somehow I was stuck to the Latin phrase. If we have to translate "Our path leads to the Kingdom", your "Nostra via in regnum ducit / fert" looks fine. --Neander 14:20, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
Sometimes I see a typo half a millisecond after clicking the servare button—and there's nothing to be done but wait and watch as the typo gets published. These things happen! IacobusAmor 14:32, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
Gratias.!
Furthermore, are 'ducit' et 'fert' the 3rd personal singular number form of 'duco' et 'fero'?
Now I've noticed that I formally paid less attention than I should to that the adjectives should be changed to the same gender as their nouns'. Little more about this point, in Subjective+Objective+Verb kind of sentences, should the objective switch to the same gender as the subjective's? E.g. Shall I say 'Mali(nt) fructus(m) sunt.' or 'Mali(nt) fructum(nt) sunt.'?
Gesalbte 17:35, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
Adjectives follow in gender the nouns to which they are attached. Nouns don't and can't normally change gender. Malus and fructus are both nouns.
When the verb is "est" there is no object. You have a subject and a complement, both in the nominative case.
When the verb is "est", the usually preferred word order is "A est B".
So, Mālī (nom. pl.) sunt fructūs (nom. pl.). Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:47, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
--
Why it should be 'nostra via' instead of 'via nostra'? Gesalbte 17:40, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
Either is possible. Word order is fairly free in Latin and partly depends on the required emphasis. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:47, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
The emphasis...so 'nostra via' and 'via nostra', which is emphasizing 'via' and which is emphasizing 'nostra'??Gesalbte 19:10, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply

About the gender..What gender should an adj. use when it attaches to 2 or more nouns?
E.g. Shall we say 'filii filiaeque lumines' or 'filii filiaeque luminae'? (google gives f.)..Gesalbte 18:34, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply

I don't know what Google has to do with it. You need a dictionary that will tell you which words are adjectives. Lumen is not an adjective, and your phrases make no sense. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 18:57, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply
T T. Now I can only find Collins (Collins Latin Dictionary & Grammar)... up there I did it careless.. It should be 'filii filiaeque luces' or 'filii filiaeque luciae'?
Google sometimes can give the right anwser.. 'filii filiaeque nostrae' can find 3 results while 'filii filiaeque nosteri' can find none....Gesalbte 19:06, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply

Conclusion: Dear Gesalbte, it seems to me that what you need is a systematic course in Latin, which is something nobody of us can give you. Therefore, I strongly suggest you visit our Porta eruditionis which contains a lot of stuff that may be useful to you; for example, an internet-based Latin grammar. We heartily welcome people, such as you, who are interested in Latin. But the more you know Latin, the better questions you can ask. Optime valeas, Neander 20:14, 4 Maii 2009 (UTC)Reply

Superfrigidatio recensere

Punctum glaciei is well attested on Google (= punctum gelationis aquae). In addition, on the taberna thread (Vicipaedia:Taberna#Freezing and glaciers) I said that I was intentionally avoiding the prefixed forms congelare and conglaciare and their derivatives when the meaning is simply 'freeze'. This is actually more classical; though punctum with any form I think is a modern idiom as the ancients did not have a scale of temperature. Punctum gelationis is also attested, though much less common than congelationis. I did leave one congelationis is the article though I would prefer to change it to gelationis for standardization. Pantocrator 19:16, 25 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)Reply

I find "punctum glaciei" rather ambiguous, but the loci you've Googled up speak for themselves. So, I withdraw my scruples. I appreciate that you left one "punctum congelationis" in the text as a diplomatic gesture. --Neander 19:44, 25 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)Reply

The odd asteroid recensere

I'm glad you're interested in the naming of asteroids! Robert has suggested categorising these names, which seems a good idea. For the "Estonia" type I was going to say "Categoria:Asteroides a locis terrestrialibus appellati". Not sure if this is the ideal Latin expression, and not sure whether to classify more narrowly (countries, towns, rivers ...) -- but I think a category page that offers a simple alphabetical list, within a very broad classification such as I've suggested, might be the handiest. Anyway, please comment! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 08:45, 24 Iulii 2010 (UTC)Reply

Well, my primary aim has been to deal with Finnish and maybe Swedish names because I think they may be somewhat easier for me to handle. I've been rather busy for weeks in writing a chapter in a book, so naming asteroids has been kind of spare time work consisting as it does of minuscule projects. I think categorising asteroid names is a good idea -- it might even serve some cultural historical project (as I wrote in Robert's discussion page) -- but I have no clear opinion about how deep the subcategorisation should be. Anyway, I suggest you say "terrestribus" instead of "terrestrialibus". Or maybe "geographicis"? --Neander 13:13, 24 Iulii 2010 (UTC)Reply

Your name has cropped up on the banks of the Fluvius Potomacus. Any comments welcome! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:49, 27 Aprilis 2011 (UTC)Reply

Well, I haven't anything important to add to the interesting discussion. My answer (to Ivan) was about the semantic differentiae of fluvius, flumen, amnis (according to Hermann Menge), not their respective frequency. I now did a quick research on Cicero's use of flumen and fluvius. It's quite true that flumen is more frequent by word-form count, but when it comes to his use of flumen and fluvius, respectively, as modifiers/descriptors of a proper name, fluvius appears to prevail (fluvius: 10 times; flumen: 3 times). But given that Caesar doesn't use fluvius at all, personal preferences seem to be involved. Neander 00:23, 28 Aprilis 2011 (UTC)Reply

Casus ablativus adiectivorum tertiae declinationis recensere

Te animadverti saepissime iuvare cum quaestiones de grammatica Latina habeo in animo, num igitur tibi displiceat si aliquando te interrogo demirabar. Id rare accideret cum semper prius quaestionum mearum responsa consectarer quam te rogarem!

Plura enim volebam scire de casu ablativo adiectivorum tertiae declinationis. Desineri certa verba vel in -e vel in -i scio.

Salve, Mattie! In participio (sicut verbi careo aliqua re 'sine aliqua re sum') de duobus modis declinandi, scilicet declinatione adiectiva et declinatione verbali, agitur. In hac sententia, homo amicis carens infelix est 'homo, qui amicos non habet, infelix est', participium carens adiectivi munere fungitur. Sin autem 'ego sum felicior quam homo amicis carens' dicere volumus ablativo comparativo usi, declinatione adiectiva usi homine amicis carenti felicior sum dicimus. Declinatio autem verbalis plerumque ad ablativum absolutum pertinere videtur. Itaque si 'Dum amicis caret ille homo, nos dolemus' ablativo absoluto usi dicere volumus, illo homine amicis carente nos dolemus dicimus. ¶ Haec regula, quamquam ubique observanda est, interdum a poëtis classicis metri causa violatur.

to appear in a film as [such or such character]
to use an apple as a paperweight
to write as a pastime

Vocabulum "(sic)ut" (aut quidem "pro"?) puto forsitan esse adhibendum, sed non sum certus. Quid tu dicas? Gratias ago! Mattie 19:24, 12 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply

Salve multum, Mattie! Iucundas posuisti quaestiones. Haec sunt mea responsa. (1) Propter similitudinem verborum Angl. appear et Lat. apparere facile fieri potest, ut homines Anglophoni dictionem X appears as Y in the film Z Latine *X ut Y in pellicula Z apparet convertant; quod quidem perperam fiat, namque in Latinitate classicae aetatis apparet ut idem fere significat atque 'appears as though (he were)'. Cum quidem as in phrasi Anglicá idem fere significare videatur atque in the role of, possumus Latine X partes Y[casus genetivus] agit in pellicula Z dicere, vel X personam Y[casus genetivus] agit (fert, gerit, tenet) in pellicula Z. Itaque fortasse Alphonsus Cuarón personam magi candelam tenentis gerit .... (2) Quod ad phrasin to use an apple as a paperweight attinet, formula generalis haec est: X uses Y as Z = X Y[casus ablativus] utitur Z[casus ablativus]; itaque Latine: X malo utitur chartarum pressorio. (3) Dictio to write as a pastime mihi videtur Latine esse delectationis causa scribere vel (suo) oblectamento[casus dativus, i.e. dativus finalis] scribere; vel sicut Cicero idiomatice dixerit: animi causa scribere.

Latin is about to make me cry, so this one's in English! recensere

I hope these inquiries of mine don't get annoying. If ever you feel like asking for something back, I shall do my best. I can draw pretty well!

Now, I understand the perfect subj. in Latin's somewhat wishy-washy, as in the Potential:

A present or future potentiality is expressed with either the present or perfect subjunctive. A past potentiality is expressed with the imperfect subjunctive, though the perfect subjunctive is occasionally used. (from here)

but I was reading my Harrius Potter and came across a sentence with a Result Clause where the perfect was used, and not the pluperfect that I'd have expected:

Dolor capitis Harrii tam acer erat ut in genua ceciderit.

I can't find anything anywhere about the perfect being a one-size-fits-all in Result Clauses (as it is in the Potential, apparently). Since this is a past event ("erat"), doesn't this have to be either imp. or pluperfect - and since Harry fell (as opposed to "was falling"), doesn't it have to be pluperfect? This is confusing! Mattie 20:20, 19 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply

Well, "don't you cry tonight!" (quoting from Guns 'n Roses, tho w/out further context :–) ). I'm afraid the grammar you're referring to isn't too helpful in this matter. As it appears to me, you quoted Potential Subjunctive (which is about independent clauses), although the sentence Dolor capitis Harrii tam acer erat ut in genua ceciderit contains a dependent consecutive clause (Result sentences in the grammar). What the grammar doesn't tell is that, in ut consecutivum, the tempus is free in the sense that it may correspond to the respective tempus in an independent clause. The Latin sentence quoted by you is perfectly correct in this respect, describing, as it does, the result that happened as a matter of fact ('. . . in genua cecidit'). It'd have been possible to say Dolor capitis Harrii tam acer erat ut in genua caderet, but this would have been a bit ambiguous, because caderet could express both past factuality and past potentiality of the result. Your question was a good one — obviously too good for a grammatica interretialis. Neander 13:17, 20 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply
I quoted the Potential because it was an example of subjunctive not being particularly strict about which tense to use - the sentence was confusing me because it wasn't Potential, and yet the subjunctive seemed to be doing whatever it wanted, if that makes sense (: I hope it came through that I was joking about crying. Thanks again for helping me out! Mattie 17:18, 20 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply
According to Ainsworth, the idiom 'to fall upon one's knees' is in genua procumbere. IacobusAmor 18:04, 20 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply
True enough. But I'd still like to defend in genua cadere in this context. Cadere is what happens involuntarily to a person, while in genua procumbere tends to involve a voluntary or at least controlled act, describing, say, milites going down to a kneeling position to beg the victor's mercy and the like. Cadere is a strong verbal expression, apt to describe workings of dolor. Neander 19:09, 20 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply
OK, but Caesar's frumenta imbribus procubuerant doesn't seem all that voluntary or controlled, at least on the part of the hapless frumenta. :) IacobusAmor 01:56, 27 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply
Perhaps the key idea behind procumbere lies in the root cumb, as in recumbent, succumb,etc., all these words carry the idea of yielding, giving in, laying down, or leaning on something, out of weariness, desire for rest, inertia, or simply due to giving up. Those motivations and causes are simply absent in cadere. As to the "fruit falling to the ground in capitulation to the rains", that subtlety of meaning is possible to convey in fewer words in latin.--123.192.69.44 05:52, 27 Augusti 2011 (UTC)Reply
Thank you for your involuntary hospitality, Neander! It isn't fruit, it's wheat or barley, so it doesn't so much fall to the ground as submit to the compulsion to recline.

Well, in Greek, iris was a heteroclitic word, which means that it had two stems, viz. iri- and irid-, and thus a mixed declension: iris (nom.sg.), irin (acc.sg.), iridos (gen.sg.), iri (voc.sg.), which were borrowed into Latin form-wise: iris, irim, iridis, .... (The rationalised acc.sg. iridem isn't attested until late Latin.) So, iris was a two-stem noun in Latin, too; and iri-color was formed on the vocalic stem.

For the record: I marked it –2 (a fairly high ranking, 2nd out of 7) on 29 Septembris 2009, and that's how it still stands. "Maxima corrigenda" is –5. Classificanda is a perfectly formed Latin word (if the verb classificare be accepted). IacobusAmor 12:28, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)Reply
You know classificare if it is latin; is medieval. But I don't see it any dictionary so far. I'm putting a lot of effort to avoid new latin as you yourself pushed for. Going back, please, it is just as wrong to say the Latin is wrong when there is nothing wrong as it is to say that wrong Latin is correct when it is not. Would it be too much to ask for more corrections?(to show that if there are these errors in some, there must be more). The quam change wasn't really needed nor does it warant a maxima corrigenda. Ok I will be going to the taberna. I don't want to give too much load on any one person. Please understand that I've been here for a few years already. The plant is now a tree. In terms of understandability it should be easy to understand. Jondel 13:09, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)Reply
According to Cassell's, 'classify' is in genera describere, but that locution becomes awkward in biological contexts, where genus has a definition so technical & circumscribed that it can make the classical idiom absolutely wrong, so one probably must accept classificare in biological contexts, whence it leaks out into other contexts, as words will. Change it back, if you like! IacobusAmor 14:09, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)Reply
Hi, Jondel! Given that agere is a heavily polysemous verb, it'd be helpful to avoid ambiguities wherever possible. If you say "quam V.L. agit", you're not necessarily violating the grammar but instead, perhaps, some cooperative principle such as clarity of expression. That's why I prefer to say "cuius partes V.L. agit", which is immediately clear to anyone who knows the idiom. Neander 13:51, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)Reply
The quam immediately points to 'what'(the character of Langford) is (being )done (so much easier to understand) but ok, I accept this. agere is polysemous but agere is easy to understand because it is very obvious that it is about actors performing character-roles. What is difficult for me to accept is the '-2 Latinitas ' . If things are working fine, don't fix them or they could get worse. Somebody could correct it and actually make it worse. So much of (my) hardwork gone to waste. Sure everybody can edit. But please be sure. If that was the basis for the '-2 latinatis' it is really not convincing. The latin I'm using is or should be very standard. I will ask for help later on the taberna. For my latin studies I will try to familiarize myself with idioms.This internet cafe is closing now and I have to go.Vale.Jondel 14:20, 5 Novembris 2011 (UTC)Reply
Although there are still imperfections, I think Neander's edits have raised the level from -2 (where Iacobus placed it originally) to -1. Hoping you others don't disagree, I will make that adjustment.
I think Neander's change from "quem ... agit" to "cuius partes ... agit", on the first occasion the phrase is used, is a good change, (a) because variety is better for the reader, and (b) because using a more explicit form the first time makes it clearer when you use the brief form the second time.

If there's a redirect, the bots will in the normal course of things correct those links on other Wikipedias: if there's no redirect, they can't and the page will be effectively lost to them.

While "Nexus externi" consist of links external to Vicipaedia, "Lege etiam" and "Vide etiam" consist of links external to the article in question. These are my reasons. But if the majority of users think that we must blindly follow the English wiki, let it be so (though, personally, I can't guarantee full obedience to rules, the existence of which escapes my wit). Neander 04:59, 20 Decembris 2011 (UTC)Reply
I see. Well, we can ask the Taberna or the discussion page. I agree with your change, but I did not change the layout because of the big header of the page (do not change this page unless consensus). I would just switch "Vide etiam" before "Lege etiam" in order to have "internal links" before "external links".
This means that "Vide etiam" should *absolutely stick* to what is thought for, i.e. related pages... right now I often see (useless) lists that replicate the "inline interwikies" in the article. So should we move this discussion somewhere else in order to involve others? --Achillus 09:39, 20 Decembris 2011 (UTC)Reply
I have nothing against hearing what others think in the Taberna. Neander 10:12, 20 Decembris 2011 (UTC)Reply

Formula:Convertimus recensere

Salve, Neander! When you edited Vestiario exire, you rewrote part of the reference I had written, namely Noli putare eam testificariExtra Vicipaediam huius locutionis testimonium vix inveniri potest. I thought I'd let you know, my original reference was copy-pasted from Formula:Convertimus (I didn't want to use the formula itself because I didn't get "vestiario exire" from "my native language," but in fact from a whole lot of languages, which I wanted to name), so if you think what you wrote is better, you might want to edit the formula. Cheers, Mattie 19:53, 1 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)Reply

I suspect no one was quite satisfied with the existing wording of the formula, so I have taken this hint and inserted Neander's wording. I'm sure all will feel free to make further changes! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 20:38, 1 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)Reply

Again recensere

Salve again, Neander! I just noticed that when I asked you how transgenerismus would be turned into an adjective, I said "If I may ask (because I don't know), ..." It just occurred to me this was terribly ambiguous. What I meant was "If I may ask (because I don't know the answer to what I'm about to ask, i.e. I'm not trying to prove any point in favour of the Greek rendering of transgender)," and not "If I may ask (because I don't know with you, you're horrible at answering questions)," which would of course have been completely false. Well, here's to hoping you read it as I intended it, and not as I wrote it! Mattie 21:42, 1 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)Reply

Equidem tolerantiam in hac re suaserim. Aliis in rebus puto scriptorem nimia severitate, ne dicam morositate, affectum esse, sicut cum de ordine verborum vituperanter iudicat.

In sententia "We ordered coleslaw, fish and chips, and crab dip."' prima et altera and inter se differunt, quod loquente auditur, sine virgula autem in pagina non videtur.

Semiotica Atomica recensere

Hello...My Latin is far too rusty to attempt here, but I wanted to ask about something you've written on the Swedish Wikipedia. You're the author of the page fi:Atomisemiotiikka, and one of the listed references is "Nielsen, Per Ole (toim. 1993) Transmittal of Information over Extremely Long Periods of Time. Proceedings of a conference arranged by Scandpower A/S in Oslo.". I've been trying to track down a copy of this, but can't find any library in the world that owns one. (At least, not according to Worldcat.) Could you tell me where you found it? Thank you! Chubbles (disputatio) 21:59, 1 Augusti 2012 (UTC)Reply

Hello, Chubbles! To tell the truth, I've never seen the Nielsen volume. I referred to it because I felt that it might be the best bibliographic source for direct information about the Oslo conference. But I did use Helge Dyvik's paper that is a contribution to the volume. It had reached my hands from a friend's friend's friend or something like that, and now I'm unable to find it. In tracking down the Nielsen volume, the next step you might take is to write to professor Dyvik (http://www.uib.no/personer/Helge.Dyvik). Perhaps he's able to help you to the whereabouts of the volume. Good luck! Neander (disputatio) 23:28, 1 Augusti 2012 (UTC)Reply

Quotes' translations recensere

Hi Neander,

I noticed you did something when editing Noam Chomsky, which I fixed without saying anything, but now you did it again over at The Silmarillion, so I figured I'd let you know :-) When I put quotations in articles, I always include the quotes in their original language in a special note, like this:

"dictio prima"[conv. 1]

Citationes Latine conversae

  1. "original quote"

The point here isn't that I'm unsure about the Latin and add in the quote in its original language for someone else to check; the point is that the quote in its original language remain in the article, so that future readers can quote whomever I'm quoting if they want to. Articles are far more useful this way. They do this in fr: too, and overe here, Andrew's using my system as well!

So, could you please not remove these references? It's a pain to have to add them back in. Gratias tibi ago, Mattie (disputatio) 20:43, 1 Decembris 2012 (UTC)Reply

Hej, Donatello! Du menar väl stadsdel? Leve den lilla skillnaden! :-) ¶ But to answer to your question, I think Iacobus is right.

Jag tar mig friheten att svara på svenska. Det går lättare så. Administrativa termer som beror på mer eller mindre lokala förhållanden är svåra att återge på ett annat språk. Malmö tycks ha delområden men t.ex. Stockholm har stadsdelsområden. Det är lite obekvämt att försöka jämföra dom och avgöra om delområde och stadsdelsområde är lokalt betingade synonymer (i vilket fall båda kunde heta vicus på latin) eller inte. Vicus låter bra. Vicus är ju i alla fall en mindre enhet än regio urbis. Neander (disputatio) 15:36, 1 Iulii 2013 (UTC)Reply

Please consider what I've just done ... I moved your recent text from Vicipaedia:Stipulae to Vicipaedia:Qualitas paginarum. I tried this because (I think) with that text you're setting a higher aim than we can practically set for our lowest level of pages -- because if pages are less than stipulae they currently get deleted in seven days. I think the aim you're setting is absolutely right, but the name's wrong.

I have suggested the name "stipes" for a page that does (roughly) what you suggest. I set no store by the suggestion (it just happens to be the same metaphor as "stipula") but I used this word for the present. One might say "pagina brevis". Or some other name. But if we say "stipula" for that level of achievement, and we continue to delete "non stipulae", we'll lead ourselves to delete at least half of our current pages ... which would be, let's say, drastic.

Tell me what you think! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:23, 13 Iulii 2013 (UTC)Reply

I think stipulastipes make a very telling hierarchical pair both phonetically and metaphorically. And I have nothing to add to or remove from those characterisations. Macte virtute! Neander (disputatio) 15:56, 13 Iulii 2013 (UTC)Reply

De profundis maiusculis recensere

I am going to ask kind UVbot to change some category names for alumni and professors of German universities in cases where we now know the "official" adjective that the university uses, e.g. from Categoria:Alumni universitatis Hamburgi and Categoria:Alumni Universitatis Kiliae to our more usual Categoria:Alumni Universitatis Hamburgensis, Categoria:Alumni Universitatis Chiloniensis. With a capital U. And then it struck me that you might well make a case for a small u in such cases. We could go that way, though it would entail quite a lot of parallel changes in due course. Any thoughts? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:08, 27 Iulii 2013 (UTC)Reply

Obviously I've done a good job in profiling myself as a representative of ordo fratrum minuscularistarum. :–) The clear cases, for me, are to some extent summarised here, the point being that I find philologist editors' practice more dependable than (American[?]-)English-inspired Vicipaedians' usus. An instance illustrating the maiuscularist bias chez nous is (or was) Praemium Nobelianum Pacis which, in my google search, proved to be a genuine instance of Vicipaedianese. As far as names of universities are concerned, both small u and big U are attested, but the trend (certainly correlatable with the all-inspiring exemplariness of the English language) appears to favour the big U. So, I don't thnk we need those parallel changes in this case. But for now I'd still prefer small initials in Aegaeum mare et sim. Neander (disputatio) 09:41, 29 Iulii 2013 (UTC)Reply

Pheromonum recensere

Dear Neander, Absolutely wonderful, that you created ex nihilo an article on pherormonta (..). My renaming actions might be too premature and based on little knowledge . I have in the meanwhile only read the abstract of the nature article of Karlson & Lüscher (1959b) (for access to the full article I have to switch to my laptop, so tomorrow I can properly check) which is actually a reply to the letter(abstract) of Mileck (1959) that is actually a reply to Karlson & Lüscher's (1959a) earlier contribution. But when reading these abstracts (as far as i can judge based on these abstracts) the information you've put in the article concerning the etymology seems to convey the position of Karlson & Lüscher properly (1959b).

It seems that Karlson & Lüscher, when confronted with their etymological erring, i.e, loosing the 'r' according to Mileck (1959) 'This they achieved by the improper expedient of dropping the letter ‘r’, thus mutilating the root of the Greek word. It should be a principle, when a scientific term is derived from classical origins, that the term must by its structure be traceable to those origins. In the case of the word ‘pheromone’ that principle is not observed : there is no structural clue to its derivation from hormān. Indeed, the only Greek verb (apart from pherein) which might conceivably be involved in its ancestry means ‘to swear’., the reaction from Karlson & Lüscher (1959) seems a little bit too pragmatic 'It must be admitted that the derivation of ‘pheromone’ from hormān is questionable. WE WOULD THEREFORE NOT INSIST ON IT ; but we regard the ending ‘mone’ as a proper suffix which is used in hormone, gamone, termone and pheromone.' It seems to me that they made a mistake and changed accordingly the etymology of their word to 'fit' the result, but their etymology seems wretched. Although finding a Latin source for pherormon is another quest/question. With kind regards and thanks for the article, Wimpus (disputatio) 22:04, 16 Octobris 2013 (UTC)Reply

Yes, I believe that your assessment of Karlson & Lüscher's etymological rambling is correct, insofar as the ὁρμᾶν part of their etymology was initially supposed to relate the novel term with hormons. Of course, one might try to play ingenuous, as I kind of did in my (too) sympathetic reading, and suggest that what ὁρμᾶν adds to the whole is simply the notion of 'quickness', but somehow this smacks of hindsight. Thanks for pointing out Micklem's corrective which escaped my attention. Indeed, it's another question how to tell the etymological story, given the fact that φέρειν and ὁρμᾶν fail, as they do, to bring out the ἔτυμος λόγος, formally as well as semantically. Obviously, the ὁρμᾶν part should be left out, and then a loose hint to φέρειν will do, because, from the viewpoint of Greek word formation, pheromone, however it's analysed, is totally beyond what is allowable. Micklem's 'swear' (root ὀμ-) is, I take it, a wry joke. Vale, Neander (disputatio) 11:46, 17 Octobris 2013 (UTC)Reply
Dear Neander, thank you for your reply. I understand your argument that ὁρμᾶν should be left out, but otherwise exposing a false etymology (excusez-moi for the contradictio in terminis) is also an explanation for the origin/genesis of a certain word and similar to exposing Volksetymologie in etymological dictionaries. In addition to Mileck (1959), Chauvin (1969) states: English speaking specialists call it pheromone, but I will stick to the pherormone spelling until I get well grounded explanation why the letter r has been unduly left out, of the greek verb “hormao”. There are more known cases in which the coiner of a neologism made a mistake that was subsequently corrected in some, but not all international languages (e.g. taxonomie/taxinomie/taxonomy, Psychoanalyse/psychanalyse/psychoanalysis (still incorrect)). With kind regards, Wimpus (disputatio) 19:15, 17 Octobris 2013 (UTC)Reply
Hi, Wimpus, and thanks for interesting thoughts. Strictly speaking, a scientific etymology has to give a truthful account (ἔτυμος λόγος) for what (usually prehistorically) underlies a certain word, both morphologically and semantically. In etymological distionaries, obviously false etymologies are listed in an appendix in order to give a Forschungsgeschichte. Scientific terms coined by scientists with inadequate knowledge of Latin or Greek involve a different case. I don't think that the issue raised by Chauvin has anything to do with etymology. Linguistic, historical etymologies are not normative, i.e. they're not supposed to give norms for language use but explanations for why a given word (like pheromone) exists and is used here and now in different languages. Now, the issue raised by Chauvin concerns, not etymology at all, but terminological Sprachpflege, which doesn't belong to the concerns of Wikipedias, because Wikipedias aren't supposed to give norms. The proper place for Chauvin to discuss the matter is (or would have been) some international organ for scientific terminology. Thanks to you, I now realise that the "etymology" chapter of the article on pheromonum requires some tidying up. Vale, Neander (disputatio) 20:54, 17 Octobris 2013 (UTC)Reply
Hi Neander, thank you for your response. 'Wikipedias aren't supposed to give norms' is a tricky one . At least for me, but that can partially be explained by my 'personality' traits. By selecting certain sources/references and choosing the word(ing) of the specific lemma hints implicitely at a certain norm. By choosing taxinomia instead of taxonomia or hormon instead of hormonum a 'preferable' orthography is selected. Although I have to admit, and I clearly violate this guideline in certain cases, that a reference has to be given. And I did not found a reference for pherormon (gen. pherormontis) yet.. Thanks, with kind regards, Wimpus (disputatio) 19:13, 18 Octobris 2013 (UTC)Reply

de paginis decenniorum recensere

Salve, Neander! Today, you moved five out of our 337 decennia pages to a new title. I would suggest that we first continue and conclude our discussion at Disputatio Formulae:Decennium#Is it true?. If we decide to delete those pages, there is no need to move them beforehand. If we decide to move them to a new title, it is easier to do that in one batch (probably by bot), and Formula:Decennium would need to be adapted.

The move you proposed (Decennium 191 to Anni 1900) would also entail a semantic difference: While Decennium 191 encompasses the years 1901 to 1910 (and thus falls entirely within the 20th century), Anni 1900 encompass the years 1900 to 1909 and thus fall partly within the 19th and partly within the 20th century, which would make Formula:Decennium a lot more complicated. I therefore have a slight tendency to delete our 337 decennia pages (after moving content, if any, to the appropriate century pages), but we should definitely discuss that! Greetings, --UV (disputatio) 22:01, 9 Novembris 2013 (UTC)Reply

Salve et tu, UV! Because the discussion had not been continued, I concluded that a consensus — admittedly a tenuous one — had been reached. Moving 337 decennia manually would indeed be a silly idea, but my moves were kind of divagatio animi in the midst of a more serious writing. And maybe it's an asset to the Sache that my meddlings roused your interest... :–) ¶ I scarcely have anything to add to the discussion. "Decennium 197" (etc) looks weird to my mind. If other languages get along with "anni 1960" (etc), I don't see why Latin should favour an outlandish expression. As I take it, the interest of keeping the formula simpler isn't good enough a reason. Vale, Neander (disputatio) 06:23, 10 Novembris 2013 (UTC)Reply
Thank you for your reply! I fully agree that the status quo should be changed. Since it was Andrew who started the discussion, I would like to wait until he returns here and has the time to weigh in again. Greetings, --UV (disputatio) 23:46, 10 Novembris 2013 (UTC)Reply
Well, here I am! I'm a practical man (or so I like to think) and I often start with the question "Will the effort be repaid?" In this case: since we are agreed that the current names of the decennium pages are un-intuitive and wrong, and since the new names would entail a complicated reworking of the formula (which means demanding that someone with the requisite skill spend the necessary time), are these pages -- under whatever name -- sufficiently useful to justify making that demand? I'm not sure that they are: they seem to contain no information, and any information they might contain could just as well go into the "saeculum" pages. So our time could be better spent. So let's delete the "decennium" pages and de-activate the bit of the formula that currently creates them. It seems to me that UV's opinion may be similar to mine. How do you feel about it, Neander? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:46, 22 Novembris 2013 (UTC)Reply
I see that Lesgles has meanwhile commented at Disputatio Formulae:Decennium#Is it true?. Probably that is the best place to reach a conclusion, so I will repeat my comment there. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:20, 22 Novembris 2013 (UTC)Reply
Me, though "practical" may not be the first word that comes into mind when characterising myself — or so I like to think :–) — I fully agree with your proposal. "Decennium 197" is one of those Vicipaedianisms that scarcely command respect to our grand project. Neander (disputatio) 15:14, 22 Novembris 2013 (UTC)Reply

Category names associated with renamed pages recensere

May I suggest, mi Martine, that when renaming a page (as for very good reasons you did at Paulopolis) you abstain from changing the similarly-named category at the foot of the page? If you do that, readers who are looking for the page by way of categories can no longer find it: it appears to them that it doesn't exist.

Instead, when a category needs moving because the associated page has a new and better name, go to Vicipaedia:Automata/Category move requests and request that UVbot move the category. If you look at the request page now, you'll see that I have just made a request in the case of Categoria:Urbs Paulistana -- and if you check tomorrow you'll probably find that UVbot has completed the task and the category is renamed Categoria:Paulopolis. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:04, 22 Novembris 2013 (UTC)Reply

Oh, I'm sorry, Andrew! I knew that I could do the request by myself but didn't remember how without extra effort. Yet another instance of my practicality: Id ne feceris hodie, quod cras poteris per alios efficere! :–) Thank you for doing the job for me, this time!

Rataa voin hyvin jatkaa, mutta en usko junan koskaan saavuttavan edes ensimmäistä asemaa latinan taidossa. Babel-taso ykkönen mielestäni kertoo, että käyttäjälle voi kirjoittaa latinaksi jotain yksinkertaista sananlaskua vaikka hän vastaisikin suomeksi. Babelin tarkoitus ei mielestäni ole kertoa niinkään käyttäjän oikeasta kielitaidosta maailman turuilla ja toreilla vaan siitä, millä kielellä hän haluaa vastaanottaa viestejä Wikipediassa. Siksi pitäydyn nollassa mieluusti ja siksi olen pyrkinyt ikäväkseni vähentämään myös saksan kielen ykköstason mainostamista enemmälti. --Pxos (disputatio) 14:33, 21 Decembris 2013 (UTC)Reply
