Re: How to pronounce "energicus"?

The "ī" is long (because of energīa from ἐνέργεια ), so it must carry the accent. The trouble is the i is not necessarily long in energicus just because the i of energia is long.

If you are asking which suffix to add to an adjective "fluvius magnus" vs "flumen magnum" then you choose it by the gender of the noun. Fluvius is masculine (we guess the gender by the ending/suffix and we confirm it in the dictionary), so you use masculine endings for the adjective. Flumen like opp...
