- Well, it says m, f, n so it claims to be a lemma. Of course the Translingual isn't redundant to the Latin because they're different languages (well, of course it's a bit more complicated than that). Renard Migrant (talk) 10:39, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
- I would delete the Latin lemma entry and replace it with a Latin inflected form entry; I would delete unattested putative inflected forms of it such as cordifoliis. I speak no Latin, so no boldface "delete" from me. I don't see how feminine form can be the lemma of a Latin adjective. Is User:SemperBlotto of a different view? --Dan Polansky (talk) 15:39, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
- I agree with Dan. Don't literally delete anything, just convert it to a form-of entry. (And don't forget the ablative feminine singular and the nominative/accusative neuter plural!) —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 16:39, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
- @Dan Polansky I can't speak definitively for SB, but, as I understand it, he generally favors having entries of some kind, rather than having a strong view about something being Latin or Translingual. He has sought my opinion, but at a time when I had even less definite views than now. I have come to favor having Latin entries for anything that inflects for gender like an adjective, even though my knowledge is limited to use in specific epithets, ie, almost always in the nominative.
- I am trying to make sense out of specific epithets generally. If my decisions about Latin vs Translingual or about which PoS a genitive-only noun form should have, there should be ways of correcting them en masse. We haven't been able to come to agreement on these things at any stage AFAICT, certainly not while I've been here. DCDuring TALK 21:28, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
- @Angr, Dan Polansky As I have no evidence that some of these adjectives, putatively Latin, have been used in other than the nominative case, I do not want to add other forms at this time. I would like to add the feminine and neuter nominative only for now, preferably using the automatic Java-based gadget, which, however, doesn't seem to work from the inflection-line templates.

Rfd discussion: September-December 2014
The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.
It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.
Translingual. This should not be a lemma, which would be cordifolius.
- Delete: full names are translingual, genus names too. But cordifolia is only Latin. Lmaltier (talk) 17:54, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
