sēsquidiēs’s genitive, dative, and ablative plural forms

These inflections of sēsquidiēs are not attestable. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 11:46, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Is there a semantic reason (i.e. no plural entry if the word uncountable) to assume this word doesn’t have genitive, dative and ablative plurals? — Ungoliant (Falai) 20:17, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, there is a semantic reason, the plurals of "one and a half day" start with "three days". —This unsigned comment was added by Erik Warmelink (talkcontribs) at 10:12, 29 September 2013‎.
Why only the genitive, dative and ablative? — Ungoliant (Falai) 19:19, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
The nominative, vocative, and accusative are isomorphic with the lemma form, so obviously they can't be deleted. This is apparently purely a New Latin word; it certainly isn't Classical Latin, and I strongly doubt it's ever attested in the plural (in any Case). —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 20:48, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

RFV failed, entries deleted. I've also updated the declension table at sesquidies to list only singular forms. —RuakhTALK 19:06, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
