Usage notes[edit]

The term īgņa is ambigenous. It is masculine when it refers to males and feminine when it refers to females. It is, however, always declined as a feminine noun, with the exception of its dative singular form, which is īgņam when it refers to a male and īgņai when it refers to a female.
