A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
aliquot (adv.): (number indefinite, indeclinable) some, several, a few; in some quantity, somewhat; cf. paucus;

NOTE: the word (properly) comes before the modified word: aliquot diebus ante, several days before.

- numerus staminum semper mihi quinarius; Jacquino inconstans; in speciminibus vero ex nova Caledonia, flores aliquot decandros observavi. (Swartz), the number of the stamens with me is always in fives: inconsistent with Jacquinus; in specimens really from New Caledonia, I have observed some flowers decandrous [i.e. ten-stamened].

- [fungi] semel gregaria lecta aliquot exempla (variarum aetatum) e stercore vaccino pronata, in via graminosa umbrosa sylvatica (S&A), some colonial samples collected (of various life stages) once, prostrate from cow-dung, in a grassy, shaded sylvan path.

- parietibus aliquot cellularum tenuibus, with the walls of some [i.e. a few] cells thin [note the ‘aliquot’ modifies ‘cellularum’ not ‘parietibus.’

- aliquot folia, some or several leaves.

- Aliquot Diagnoses Muscorum novorum, several diagnoses of new mosses (J-E. Duby).

- seminibus aliquot ad sectionem Acutifoliae (R. S. Cowan) Torke & Mansano referenda, sed indumento adpresso, with the seeds somewhat to the section Acutifolia (R. S. Cowan) Torke & Mansano referred, but with indument appressed.

- cellulis laevibus aliquis vermicularibus aliquot basi rectangularibus with the cells smooth, some vermicular a few at the base rectangular.

- sporangia et non caduca et non papillata, sed aetate vel ante remissionem zoosporarum aliquot semi-papillatae, the sporangia both not caducous and not papillate, but with age or before release of the zoospores some are semi-papillate.

- semina rotunda, aliquot horum abortiva, seeds round, a few of these abortive.

- vaginae aliquot radicales emarcidae, unde caules quasi articulati (Swartz), the a few sheaths bearing roots, withered [but persistent], whence the stems as if articulated [jointed].

- capsula subrotunda, calyce coronata, post aliquot dies 3-gona evadit, tandem 3-alata; matura 3-fariam dehiscit; loculamentis 2-alatis, déciduis, 1-spermís (Swartz), capsule nearly round, crowned by the calyx, after a few days it becomes trigonous, finally 3-winged; the mature capsule dehisces in three places: with the locules 2-winged, deciduous, 1-seeded.

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
