check your pms.

the former is an awkward and awful neologism that I came up with when trying to put to latin 'indirect questions'. it was, needless to say, never used in Latin -but I felt in "The Agora" it would suffice.
As regards verba constantia - it means consistent words, i.e. the use of a vocabulary that is contemporaneous within itself and adherent to a specific style.
