::What about ''computatore''? That in my mind is the best word for computer in Latin. It comes from the same form as the English word comes (meaning "one who computes"), but the neuter ending designates it as a machine rather than a human and also serves to distinguish it from "computator"- a human being who does calculatons. As Iustinius said, we should not base new Latin words on forms that stopped being used 2200 years ago. Latin is a continuously evolving language (at least it was until a couple hundred years ago) and we shouldn't be going back to the way Romans used the language if it has evolved since then, especially not back to before the Punic Wars! -[[User:Kedemus|Kedemus]] 07:27, 18 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
::::I don't believe using any neuter form of '-tor' is the answer, chiefly because -trum is ''already'' the regular neuter of the agent series—i.e. computator m., computatrix f., computatrum n. (This is why people want to use -trum so often, regardless of whether there is any merit in doing so). Your use of -e as a neuter presupposes the term being formed from an adjective in -is (*computatoris, -is, -e), which it isn't. —[[User:Mycēs|Mucius Tever]] 14:58, 22 Novembris 2007 (UTC)
:::[[Vicipaedia:Noli fingere|Noli fingere]]! Computatrum - as it may be - is still used in most places today. (At least I think). Computatore firstly is [[Vicipaedia:Noli fingere|''fictus'']], whereas ''computatrum'', ''ordinatrum'' etc. aren't (i.e. we can definitely find sources) and secondly, it doesn't even look latin! I think that a -trum is better than any -tore even if -trum stopped being used once! Also Iustinus has obviously wanted to try and stop this (tedious) debate about the name of computers, so we should just let it be how it is. Also also, saying things like that we must make latin 'evolve' erm... it has already happened. <fontspan facestyle="font-family:'Courier New" size="4';">[[Disputatio Usoris:Harrissimo|Harrissimo]]</fontspan> 10:59, 18 Novembris 2007 (UTC).
