A calyx Case Nominative Accusative Genitive Dative Ablative Singular calyx calycem calycis calyci calyce the/a calyx (subject) the/a calyx (object) of a calyx to/for a calyx by/with/from a calyx Plural calyces calyces calycum calycibus calycibus the calyxes (subject) the calyxes (object) of the calyxes to/for the calyxes by/with/from the calyxes Fourth declension (Stearn pp. 87–88) In this declension the nouns have a stem ending in ‘u’.

Unlike those of other languages, Latin verbs are listed in a dictionary not by the infinitive (to live, to grow), but by the first person singular of the present indicative active (a real mouthful, but if you want to look up the correct part of the verb you want, you need to know this, as tables of Latin verbs can look quite daunting). In other words, you look up sum (I am), not esse (to be), or cresco (I grow), not crescere (to grow).

25 Comp. g. ‘stellate-pubescent’, ‘greenish-white’. When using this form in Latin, the ending of the first adjective is modified to end in ‘o’ if it is group A, in ‘i’ if it is group B or C. They are sometimes joined by a hyphen. The first adjective of the pair is not declined, only the second. Do not use this form to show a range from one to another – for this use the word ‘to’ (‘oblong to elliptic’) or an en rule (‘oblong–elliptic’), but the latter could be mis-interpreted by the reader as a hyphen.
