ea quae SUBIECTAE sunt sensibus?

Postby Carolus Raeticus » Fri Apr 22, 2011 5:59 am

Salvete!

I stumbled upon the following dictionary entry:

Walter Ripman wrote:ea quae subiectae sunt sênsibus, what can be perceived by the senses

I have a funny feeling about this. Shouldn't it rather read either

  • ea quae subiecta sunt sênsibus: with ea being neutral plural, or
  • eae quae subiectae sunt sênsibus: with eae being feminine plural and rês being understood?
Or am I completely wrong and Mr. Ripman's entry is correct? If it's not and it is a print error, which one is better (I prefer the first one).

Valete,

You're right. Possibly a typo in your source. Either works: "ea quae subjecta sunt" / "eae res quae subjectae sunt".
Rectè dicis, Carole. Forsit erratum typographicum in fonte tuo. Utrum est bonum: "ea quae subjecta sunt" / "eae res quae subjectae sunt".
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.

Salve Adriane!

Thank you for your opinion. It was the final piece of information needed for my project "Classified Vocabulary".

I have no idea what Ripman's book is like and if he seeks to cite classical sources in his definitions (?) - if that is the case, he might have had in mind res, following Cicero:

res eas quae subiectae sensibus viderentur,
