Quantum redactiones paginae "Disputatio:Canalis" differant

::I agree now. I think Rafael may have hit the nail on the head. The speakers quoted by Pliny could have been nicknaming the canal "Drusus's ditch". <font face="Gill Sans">[[Usor:Andrew Dalby|Andrew]]<font color="green">[[Disputatio Usoris:Andrew Dalby| Dalby]]</font></font> 10:05, 19 Martii 2010 (UTC)
:::Vide quod [[Ammianus Marcellinus]] scribit (24.6.1): "Ventum est hinc ad '''fossile flumen''' Naarmalcha nomine, quod amnis regum interpretatur, tunc aridum. id antehac Traianus posteaque Severus egesto solo fodiri in modum '''canalis''' amplissimi studio curaverat summo, ut aquis illuc ab Euphrate transfusis naves ad Tigridem conmigrarent." (Anglice convertit C.D. Yonge: "From this place they advanced to a '''canal''' known as Naharmalcha, a name which means "The River of Kings." It was then dry. Long ago Trajan, and after him Severus, had caused the soil to be dug out, and had given great attention to constructing this as a '''canal''' of great size, so that, being filled with water from the Euphrates, it might enable vessels to pass into the Tigris."). Fortasse illud "flumen fossile" aptissimum est, cum etiam 'canalis' nomen ambiguum sit. --[[Usor:Fabullus|Fabullus]] 11:03, 19 Martii 2010 (UTC)
::::Credo 'nos' nimis praecipitanter egisse, cum hanc paginam movimus.

===De genere ===
It seems the consensus is that ''canalis'' is masculine. Damn; I assumed it was neuter because of [http://www.archives.nd.edu/cgi-bin/words.exe?canalis Whitaker's]. [[Usor:Pantocrator|Pantocrator]] 00:28, 20 Martii 2010 (UTC)
