    • Marcus Terentius Varro, De Lingua Latina, Book VIII, Chapter XXXVII.66
      Quæ si esset in analogia, negant ullum casum duobus modis debuisse dici; quod fit contra...Nam sine reprehensione vulgo alii dicunt in singulari hac ovi et avi, alii hac ove et ave; in multitudinis hæ puppis restis et hæ puppes restes; item quod in patrico casu hoc genus dispariliter dicuntur civitatum parentum et civitatium parentium, in accusandi hos montes fontes et hos montis fontis.
      If regularity existed, they say, no case ought to be used in two forms; but the opposite is found to occur...For without censure quite commonly some say in the ablative singular ovi ('sheep') and avi ('bird'); others say ove and ave; in the plural, the nominative puppis ('ship's sterns') and restis ('ropes'), also puppes and restes; likewise there is the fact that in the genitive plural of words of this class are used the variant forms civitatum ('of states'), parentum ('of parents'), and civitatium, parentium ('of parents'), and in the accusative plural montes ('mountains'), fontes ('springs'), and montis, fontis.
