If you're going to include Hebrew words

Far be it from me to point out that the original question was looking for:

Latin adverbs ending in -tim

or to point out that adverbs are not declined for case, gender or number and very few Latin adverbs ending in -tim are Hebrew, singular or plural.

>and proper nouns

and from there it was but one small step for me, kind of skipping to initialisms whilst engaging the VCD.

In reply to:

I think this is an error. Thee are Latin adverbs ending in -tim, but "legitim" is not one.
That would be "legitime". I can remember "statim", 'seriatim", "verbatim".
How many others can you remember?



iuxtim = equally
adfatim = enough
viritim = individually
confertim = in close order
confestim = immediately


You're quite right, Bill -- they were few and far between.

dub-dub broadened it

If I asked for a list of novels by Pearl Buck would you have broadened the question by contributing Sweet Thursday on the grounds that the author's name also ends in ck?

Not ignoring the fact that Dub' Dub explicitly denied broadening the question

this is, as the former Capital Kiwi might put it, so much codswollop.

If somebody else's list of works by Pearl S. Buck contained obvious interlopers

But Dub' Dub's list wasn't from a list of Latin adverbs ending in tim, it was from a list of words ending in tim.

a list of 15 words which inherently denies dr. bill's entire ("Latin adverbs") premise

Or either ignores it, one, tsuwm.

put the blame on Onelook.com for broadening it.

That's because you didn't ask it the right question, D'D

And I don't mind threads going off in all directions, but when someone asks a question…
