semantics of genitive case with inopia?

Postby Swth\r » Thu Jun 27, 2013 4:56 pm

inopia militum, inopia pecuniae, inopia frumenti, inopia aquae etc. etc.

The genitive-supplement of the noun inopia is subjective or objective in sense? Or perhaps something else...?

Definitionis genetivus casus seu descriptionis, ut opinor. Nomen inopiae seu inopis e verbo non derivatur, dein nec subjectivo nec objective casu genetivo hoc nomen.
I think this is a genitive of definition or description. Inopia or Inops is not related to a verb so it's not subjective or objective genitive.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
