Etymology[edit]

From Ancient Greek μέλᾱς (mélās, dark, black)

Adjective[edit]

melās (indeclinable)

  1. (Late Latin, New Latin) dark (in colour), black
    • 4th century (Late Latin, arguably a mentioning), Pseudo-Apuleius' Herbarium, chapter XCIX. Herba hedera nigra, in: Corpus medicorum latinorum, vol. IV, 1927, p. 179:
      Nomina herbae. A Graecis dicitur cissos melas, alii cissaron, alii Nision, Galli bolus serron, Daci arpopria, Itali hedera nigra.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The original Greek has distinct masculine, feminine and neuter forms, but the same Latin form is found modifying masculine, feminine and neuter genus names, and thus the form is best treated as an indeclinable adjective.
