:Possibly they were going for {{lewshort|arista}}s? —[[Usor:Muke|Muke]] 13:40, 6 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
::Head of grain or something like that. nice! How about acutulior?[[Usor:Jondel|Jondel]] 13:53, 6 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
:::It just looks like the comparative of {{lewshort|acutulus}}. I'm not sure what they're going for in that sentence, especially with ''ferrae'' (I suspect 'ferae' is meant—but 'wild cavies are a little sharper every day'?). —[[Usor:Mycēs|Mucius Tever]] 19:16, 7 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
==Conception and emendation==
::::The taxobox shows it's an animal, and it therefore needs its ordinary Latin name; hence the new lemma. Note that the species epithet, ''porcellus,'' is a masculine noun ('little pig'), which stands in apposition to the genus name, a feminine noun.

The intro sentence seems to suggest a common name or genus is in mind, not the species ("X is a mammal of the caviid family originating from one or many of the species of the genus ''Cavia''"). It looks like it was written when the page was still at a page that could be about cavies in general, but wasn't rewritten when the page was moved to ''Cavia porcellus'' in particular. (The history doesn't support this hypothesis, though—I can't tell how this sentence came to be at all.) —[[Usor:Mycēs|Mucius Tever]] 19:16, 7 Ianuarii 2012 (UTC)
