See also: -istic



Alternative forms

  • isthic (formerly used in New Latin)



From iste + -ce.





istic m (feminine istaec, neuter istuc or istoc)

  1. this same, this very
  2. that of yours


  • The declension mostly followed that of hic, which in some cases would yield forms indistinguishable from forms of iste. In other cases, this would yield forms which simply are not attested: *istuius for the genitive singular and *istuic for the dative singular. Those forms and the forms overlapping with forms of iste are not listed here; only attested non-overlapping forms are.
  • In some sources the particle -ce was added directly to forms of iste in such overlapping cases; thus for example istīusce is attested for the genitive singular of all genders, and istōsce for the masculine accusative plural. Other such forms may also be attested.
