Do you mean victrix, -icis? The ending -trix is the feminine version of -tor (as in victor, -oris).

I don't know. I have to decline it. They gave me some nouns and (I think they've forgot to) write the gender of this one. They haven't gave me the translations, so I don't know what else can I say. :S

I think it is a typo for victrix then. Regardless of what word it is, the ending suggests that the noun is most likely feminine.

So you are saying they've made the same typo twice in a row?

Do not underestimate the malign influence of cut-and-paste!

Alright. Let's say it's victrix, icis. What paradigm will it follow?

N. victrix
G. victricis
D. victrici
A. victricem
V. victrix
Ab. victrice

N. victrices
G. victricum
D. victricibus
A. victrices
V. victrices
Ab. victricibus

Right?

Muy bien, Rodrigo! perfecto, creo.

Quiero preguntar, ¿en qué lenga está escrita tu firma?
