A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Sumptus,-us (s.m.IV), abl.sg. sumptu: cost, charge, expense; see expense;

- sumptu auctoris, at the author's expense (Stearn).

- sporophyta sumptu gametophyti crescentia, sporophyte growing at the expense of the gametophyte.
sumptus,-a,-um (part.A): taken, assumed; chosen, selected; mentioned [> L. sumo, sumpsi, sumptum, 3. to take, take up, assume (syn. capio); to take (by choice), to choose, select; assume claim, acquire, receive; to use, apply, employ; undertake, begin, enter upon; to take for granted, to assume; to cite as a proof, mention (Lewis & Short)]; + pro + abl., ‘taken for,’ ‘interpreted as;’ cf. habitus,-a,-um (part.A) taken for,’ ‘interpreted as’(pro + abl.);

- corpus teres, breve, testa vaginatum et intra cotyledones inclusum, a Thwaitesio aliisque descriptum et pro embryone sumptum, nobis potius radicula cum cotyledonum basibus continua videtur, the round, short body [sheathed with the testa] included within the cotyledones, by Thwaite and others described and taken for an embryo.

- nisi forte carpella pro fructibus perfectis sumpsit, unless by chance he took the carpels for perfect fruit.

- SUMTIBUS KUMMERIANIS 1805, undertaken by Kummeriani (the publishers).

- Sed characteres e stigmatis forma sumpti, nisi aliae notae accedant, hic nobis non magis valere videntur quam in Corydali v. in Dicentra (B&H); but the characters taken from the form of the stigma, unless other features occur, here seem by us to be no more strong than in Corydalis or in Dicentra.

- Genus habitu naturalissimum, sed characteres diagnostici a siliqua sumpti nulli vel decipientes (B&H); a genus most natural in general appearance, but the diagnostic characters taken from the siliqua are none or deceiving.

- ovarium tamen saepssime ut in aliis speciebus 2-loculare invenimus, et character e filamentis sumptus laevioris momenti videtur; we find the ovary, however, very often is as in other species 2-locular, and the character taken from the filaments seems of more trifling importance.

- Omnes ebracteatae sunt, sed characteres e carpellorum aristis v. eorum dehiscentia sumpti in aliis etiam speciebus observantur (B&H), all are ebracteate, but characters taken from the hairpoints of the carpels or the dehiscence of them are observed even in other species.

NOTE: ‘sumpsit’ is the perfect active third person singular of sumo, ‘he, she, it’ has taken, mentioned, etc.

 

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