A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Sapientum (gen.pl. sapiens,-entis (part.B), but the gen. pl. perhaps should be sapientium): “pertaining to wise men; used of the better forms of banana in contrast to those called troglodytarum [gen.pl.] considered fit only for apes or cave-dwellers (Stearn 1996).

Sapiens,-entis (s.m.III) [perhaps sc. homo, hominis, m. & f. gender, a human being]: a sensible, shrewd, knowing, discreet or judicious person” (Lewis & Short).

Troglodytae or Trogodytae,-arum (pl.m.I) = Gk. TrOglodotae, “a people of Ethiopia who dwelt in caves, the Troglodytes” (Lewis & Short).

 

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