Etymology[edit]

From sextus (sixth) + -ilis (-ile: forming adjectives & nouns), presumably derived from its original place in the Roman calendar, though it was the 8th month after the new year began to be calculated from January.

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

sextīlis (neuter sextīle); third declension

  1. Of August, the sixth month of the Roman calendar or eighth month of the Gregorian calendar.

Usage notes[edit]

In Latin, the month names are used as adjectives. In the Classical period, this adjective modifies a noun identifying a particular day, from which the date was reckoned. In Medieval Latin and later periods, the adjective modifies a numeral for the day of the month.
