A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
velut (adv.), veluti (adv.): just as, like, as, as if; to introduce an example, for example; for instance; velut(i) (conj.) (with si) as if, as though; see ’like;’

- racemi compositi, penduli, velut folia pinnatisecta e gemma terminali squamosa primo vere erumpentia (B&H), racemes compound, pendulous, just as pinnatisect leaves bursting forth from terminal scaley buds in early spring.

- zoosporis velut isogametae fungentibus, with zoospores functioning as if isogametes (Stearn).

- folia madore apice caulis veluti in rosulam congesta, leaves in moisture congested as in a rosette.

- folia veluti rosulam minutam sistentia, leaves standing like a minute rosette.

- braceis velut petalla coloratis, with bracts colored as if petals.

- radice foliosa ex qua media veluti malum extuberat, with a foliose root from which middle as an apple swells.

- (algae) siccata sistit maculam veluti pictam, nitentem medio atro-viridem, peripheria vero radiantem filis pulcherrime viridibus, semi -1- uncialibus (Agardh), when dry it presents a blotch as if painted, shining, in the middle dark green, on the periphery truly radiating with threads a most beautiful green, [the threads] one half to one inch.

- (algae) siccata sistit maculam veluti pictam plus minus dilute viridem, nitentem, versus marginem sensim evanescentem (Agardh), when dry it displays a blotch as if painted, more or less weakly green, shining, toward the margin gradually vanishing.

NOTE: in these examples the zoospores are not isogametes, nor is the stem in a rosette; note also in these examples the nouns following 'velut' are in the nominative.

ut (adv.), uti (adv.): before an appositive noun, 'as, the same as, like;'

- foliis ut fistula involutis, with leaves involute like a pipe.

- petala ut charta tenuia, petals thin like paper.

 

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