A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Vitis, gen. sg. vitis (s.f.III), abl. sg. vite, nom. & acc. pl. vites, gen. pl. vitium (an i-stem), dat. & abl. pl. vitibus: a vine, the grape vine.

Vitis, gen. sg. Vitis (s.f.III), abl. sg. Vite (s.f.III): the genus of the grape; V. labrusca L., source of many grapes used in horticulture, such as the Concord, Champion and Chautauqua; V. aestivalis Michx.; V. palmata Vahl, V. riparia. Note that classically vitis may also refer to viney plants such as the pumpkin, cucurbits and other pepo-bearing plants;

- tres esse motus in vite, seu potius in surculo, naturales: unum quo geminet; alterum quo floreat; tertium quo maturescat” (Lewis & Short), there being three natural stages in a vine, or rather in a shoot: one by which it may double [i.e. reproduce]; another by which it may flower; the third by which it may ripen.

like Vitis: vitaceus,-a,-um (adj.A).

 

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