A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
whether ... or ...;

whether (conj.): in disjunctive conditional sentences, when a thing is true, in either of two conditions:

- sive ... sive ...:

- folia, sive statu madida sive sicca, non crispa, the leaves, whether in a moist or dry state, not crisped.

- seu ... seu ...:

- sporae dimorphae, seu magnae seu parvae, fertiles, spores dimorphous, whether large or small, fertile.

- rami, seu gemmae evolutae seu perichaetia, intercalares, the branches, whether gemmae produced or perichaetia, intercalary.

NOTE: the above conditions are simple predicative statements with the verb 'to be' implied: the leaves ARE not crisped whether wet or dry.

NOTE: the Latin formulation an ... an ..., and utrum ... an ..., both employ the subjunctive verb form and are not treated here.

 

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