introeuntes ~ introeuntis, etc.[fontem recensere]

According to Allen & Greenough #117, adjectives of one termination, necessarily including the participles, have "-īs (as well as -ēs) in the accusative plural masculine and feminine" (also, in the ablative singular). A&G show the preferred form to be -īs. A&G's pertinent example is egēns, with preferred ablative singular egentī and preferred accusative plural egentīs. The most memorable example that comes to mind is of course Quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentis (Aen. 2.49), where ferentis is accusative plural. Why was -īs faulty in the article? Perhaps the example is nominative and, reading quickly, I was thinking it was accusative? IacobusAmor 13:52, 31 Maii 2009 (UTC)

Both interoeuntes and introeutis are correct. My point was this: why change a correct form to another, "preferred" or not (esp. in the case of a good Latinist who certainly knows what he's doing)? --Neander 14:02, 31 Maii 2009 (UTC)
One doesn't necessarily check to see who the author might be before making changes. IacobusAmor 14:28, 31 Maii 2009 (UTC)
