A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Anemone (s.f.I), gen. sg. Anemones, acc. sg. Anemonen, dat. sg. Anemonae, abl. sg. Anemone, a genus in the Ranunculaceae. The genus Anemone, L., is an ancient Greek and Latin name, "a corruption of Na 'man, the Semitic name for Adonis, from whose blood the crimson-flowered Anemone of the Orient is said to have sprung" (Fernald, 1950). Sometimes the common name, Wind-flower, is from an erroneous association with the Greek word anemo-, wind-.

- Uredo Anemones (=gen.sg.) Epiphylla vel petiolaris: unum idemque nonnumquam folium cum Aecidio Anemones occupans; epiphyllous or petiolar: one and the same nearly always occupying the leaf with Aecidium Anemones [gen.sg.].

- folium florale amplexicaule et dissectum in Anemone (B&H), the floral leaf is clasping the stem and dissected in Anemone (abl.sg.).

- stamina brevia Anemonis, similia tamen in Thalictro tuberoso aliisque paucis occurrunt (B&H), the stamens are short in the Anemones (abl. pl.), yet are similar in Thalictrum tuberosum and they also occur in a few others.

Tribus II. Anemoneae.(B&H).

NOTE: declined like raphe, Aloe, Botanice, Clitocybe, Microchaete, Microcoryne. Puccinia Anemones, the Puccinia of Anemone.

 

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