Isn't the first element of a compound usually the stem? Why wouldn't it have been ''iridicolor,'' with the stem as seen in [[Iridium|iridium]], [[:en:Iridectomy|iridectomy]], [[:en:Iridescence|iridescence]], [[:en:Iridology|iridology]], and [[:en:Iridosmine|iridosmine]]?

: 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.

Salue, Neander. Quid signifiat "plicis", (plicus, plex, plica ? )? Non inveni hoc verbum in meo vocabulario. --[[Usor:Marc mage|Marc mage]] 23:11, 28 Octobris 2011 (UTC)
