Doh!

Abl. and dat. look so much alike that I confused them!

Anyway, my question remains: is the rule given in Wheelock for the ablative, that the participle takes an 'e' when it's used substantivally/verbally and an 'i' when it's used strictly adjectivally, always hold? Or is this just a general tendency?

I would like to know how consistent this rule is as well.
