Disputatio:Phyle (taxinomia)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

So, what is the declension? I've seen the genitive phylae here on Vicipaedia, and I've used it, but I have doubts. I've also seen the genitive phyles attested. So, should it be entirely inflected like nymphe? Sigur (disputatio) 09:54, 12 Martii 2019 (UTC)

Our best advice in general is at Usor:Fabullus/Declinatio Latina nominum Graecorum. (Fabullus is not currently active -- I hope he'll come back one day.)
... But I don't see anything there on this question. One might check "phyles" and "phylae" (with quotes) on Google, and probably there will be evidence for both ... Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 10:04, 12 Martii 2019 (UTC)
Hmm. The online Latin dictionaries where I've seen the word give "phyle, phyles". And as for the moment, I only need the genitive singular, I think I'll go for that. I suppose it's reasonable to assume that the rest goes like nymphe then, but as I don't need it for the moment... Sigur (disputatio) 21:12, 12 Martii 2019 (UTC)
Also note that this article describes and links to en:Race (biology), which is not the same as en:Race (human categorization), for which we currently lack an article; they could both be called phyle, but we'd need to disambiguate them in some way.
