1st/2nd Declension: -US -A -UM
also connected to 'alias'; learn too ALII...ALII...: some...others...
|SUPERBUS||PROUD, ARROGANT||superb||Tarquinius Superbus: Tarquin the Proud (word is always used in a bad sense); he was proud of his super bus|
|CELER celeris celere||QUICK||accelerate||deriv.'s; see prompts for 'celeriter', espec. **celery** grows quickly|
|IDEM eadem idem|
, THE SAME
the 'definitive' pronoun (!) It's the same as is ea id with '-dem' on the end
|IPSE ipsa ipsum||-SELF||?||the 'intensive' pronoun...'ipsy daisy! He's hurt himself!'|
|QUI quae quod||WHO, WHICH||Fr. qui||the 'relative' pronoun (a very important one!). Fr. deriv. should help most|
literally: 'amongst those things' (inter ea); some people remember it visually by the -ea- similarity; otherwise, it is a mean one - and while you're thinking it's mean, that's what it means - mean-while!
|LENTE||SLOWLY||Fr. lentement||if you've given up something nice for Lent, it really goes slowly!|
|PAENE||ALMOST, NEARLY||peninsula, penultimate||deriv.'s; then there's the old pupil who liked making pesto sauce: 'got the basil, the oil, the cheese - oops, almost forgot the pine-nuts...!'|
|AUT||OR||?||'nunc aut numquam' (yet again!) Also learn aut...aut...: either...or...: 'either you get 'aut' or I'll kick you 'aut'!|
|DUM||WHILE||?||if you're a bit 'dum', it takes you a while to remember things...|
use the -que on the 'ne': and something negative
NEC...NEC... or NEQUE...NEQUE...
|NEITHER...NOR||?||worth an entry on its own! If two runners are 'neck and neck', neither one is winning, and nor is the other|
|UT/NE||(IN ORDER) TO, (IN ORDER) NOT TO||?||needs a whole topic on its own to explain the difference between Purpose Clauses and Indirect Commands. See future pages of this website! P.S. if you're wondering why there are only apparently 48 boxes in the Divine 49, it's because UT and NE are, of course, two different words!|
