== derivatives of feminine -ō/-ūs nouns ==
 
Hi Andrew,
 
Thanks for the welcome.
 
Just wondering if I could pick your brain. I'm searching for what we should do in English for derivatives of Greek words like ''Argō''. There is ''Saphicus'' (and thus English ''Sapphic'') for ''Sapphō'', which parallels Greek ''Sapphikos'', but there's also Greek ''Sapphō[i]os'', which has parallels in e.g. ''o''-retaining ''echoic'' and ''heroic'' (Greek ''hērōikos'', fem. ''hērōinē''). And then for ''Dīdō'' there's Latin ''Didonia'', ''Lētō'' > ''Latona'', and ''Pȳthō'' has the older Greek form ''Pȳthōn'', all with an ''n''. So, e.g. with ''Callistō'' used as the name of a moon, would the crust of the moon be identified in English as ''Callistian'', ''Callistoan'' or ''Callistonian''? I've seen all three in the lit, but assume that most authors are just making ''ad hoc'' derivations without knowing what they're doing, just as I've see 'Mimasian' and 'Mimian' for Mimantean.

:It's not just Greek: since about 1900, English has had ''Venusian'' alongside ''venereal'' (reflecting Latin ''venereus'' since the fifteenth century). [[Usor:IacobusAmor|IacobusAmor]] ([[Disputatio Usoris:IacobusAmor|disputatio]]) 11:37, 26 Martii 2020 (UTC)
