Heavy Construction

The Allen and Greenough is still under construction; so some links may not work quite the way you would expect.


Stems ending in ro- preceded by e form the Nominative Masculine like puer (§ 47) and are declined as follows: -

miser, misera, miserum, wretched

STEM misero- STEM miserá- STEM misero-
GEN. miserí miserae miserí
DAT. miseró miserae miseró
ACC. miserum miseram miserum

a. Like miser are declined asper, gibber, lacer, liber, prospor (also prosperus), satur (-ura, -urum), tenor, with compounds of -ter and -ger as, saetiger, -era, -erum, bristle-bearing; also, usually, dexter. In these the e belongs to the stem; but in dextra it is often omitted; as, dextra manus, the right hand.

NOTE: Stems in ero- (as prócérus), with morigerus, properus, have the regular nominative masculine in -us.

b. The following lack a nominative singular masculine in classic use cétera, infera, postera, supera. They are rarely found in the singular except in certain phrases: as, posteró dié, the next day.

NOTE: An ablative feminine in -=o is found in a few Greek adjectives: as, lectícá octóphoró (Verr. v. 27).
