miser, misera, miserum, wretched
|STEM misero-||STEM miserá-||STEM misero-|
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).
