Usage

This template is designed for regular Latin adverbs that are:

  • derived from 1st/2nd declension adjectives (e.g. lentē)
  • derived from 3rd declension adjectives (e.g. crēbriter)
  • lacking a comparative and superlative form (e.g. ceu)
  • irregular (e.g. bene)

Regular adverb parameters

For regular adverbs, this template takes three parameters. The first and third parameters are required; the second parameter may be left blank.

{{{1}}} = stem without macrons

{{{2}}} = stem with macrons (optional)

{{{3}}} = ending pattern (values = e, er, ter, iter, im, or -)

Parameter 3 is the ending of the positive (lemma) form of the adverb. A value of "-" for the third parameter marks the adverb as not having a comparable form.

Examples:

  • ceu (not comparable; only arguments 1, and 3, since the stem contains no macrons)
    {{la-adv|ceu||-}}
  • lentē (only arguments 1 and 3, since the stem contains no macrons)
    {{la-adv|lent||e}}
  • abundanter (only arguments 1 and 3, since the stem contains no macrons)
    {{la-adv|abundant||er}}
  • dūrē (arguments 1, 2, and 3, since the stem contains a macron)
    {{la-adv|dur|dūr|e}}
  • crēbriter (arguments 1, 2, and 3, since the stem contains a macron)
    {{la-adv|crebr|crēbr|iter}}
  • gravātim (arguments 1, 2, and 3, since the stem contains a macron)
    {{la-adv|gravat|gravāt|im}}

Irregular adverb parameters

For irregular adverbs, this template takes four or five parameters. The first, second, and fourth parameters are required; the third and fifth parameters may be left blank.

{{{1}}} = full positive form, with macrons (if any)

{{{2}}} = comparative form, without macrons

{{{3}}} = comparative form, with macrons (optional)

{{{4}}} = superlative form, without macrons

{{{5}}} = superlative form, with macrons (optional)

Examples:

  • bene (irregular, macrons on superlative and not on comparative)
    {{la-adv|bene|melius||optime|optimē}}
  • facile (irregular, macrons on superlative and not on comparative)
    {{la-adv|facile|facilius||facillime|facillimē}}
