A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
cursive (adv.): cursively, > cursivus,-a,-um (adj.A): cursive a style of printed (alphabetical) letter imitating handwriting, the letters in a word usually joined together; italic, a type face, is a form of cursive; cursive (adv.): in the manner of handwriting; cursivus,-a,-um (adj.A), in medaeval Latin = fluent (of a pen) (Latham);

NOTE: in many floristic texts, the taxonomic (i.e. family, generic, specific) descriptions and written in Roman type, but the characters that distinguish the taxa are written in a different type face, e.g. cursive or italic;

- a B. rurali notis cursive impressis facile discernibilis, easily discernable from Barbula ruralis by the characters cursively impressed (printed) [from a description where key features were printed in italics].

- [moss] ab A. heteromalla proxima notis cursive impressis longe distat (C. Mueller), from the nearest to it A. heteromalla far distant by the characters cursively impressed (printed).

- A P. urnigero proximo differt: notis cursive impressis prime theca valde papillosa, dum illa P. urnigeri minute papillosa observatur (C. Mueller), it differs from the nearest Polytrichum urnigerum: by the features printed cursively, especially by the theca strongly papillose, while those observed of P. urnigerum are minutely papillose.

- [moss] A Br. cespiticio cespitibus pallescentibus haud sericeis et notis cursive impressis distinguitur (C. Mueller), distinguished from Bryum cespiticium by the clumps pallescent, hardly silky, and by the notes printed cursively.

- [moss] A Br. atropurpureo notis cursive impressis differt, habitu proprio (C. Mueller), it differs from Bryum atropurpureum by the notes cursively printed, with a characteristic habit.

 

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