A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
vocatus,-a,-um (part.A): called [> L. voco,-avi,-atus, vocare, 1. to call, to call upon, summon]; see ‘named, called;’

- in vico vulgo vocato Fleetstreet, on the street commonly called Fleetstreet.

- semiuncialem magnitudinem non multum superat haec elegans species caule crassiore destituta, nervis mediis lateralibus fibris parum crassioribus, in innumera filamenta tenuissima, varie invicem intexta, abeuntibus, paene instar mundi muliebris, quem Lace Angli, Kanten & Spitzen Germani vocare solent (Dill.), this elegant species does not exceed more magnitude than one half inch, lacking a thicker stem, with the middle, lateral nerves somewhat thicker than [the fibers], passing into innumerable very delicate filaments, variously interlaced, [back and forth, this way and that], almost like a [woman’s ornament of dress] which the English are accustomed to call Lace, the Germans Kanten [lace-trim] and Spitzen (lace].

 

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