As of today, Pluto is no longer regarded to be a planet. By astonomers, that is. Should this article be changed? Or should the article present a more layman kind of POV? --Agricola 20:19, 24 Augusti 2006 (UTC)[reply]

2 Skinnee J's (whom I trust dearly, though perhaps not as much as astronomers) sure think that Pluto is a planet! More seriously, though...I don't know. I'm torn between trusting the academic body of astronomy and the 20 odd years that I've been calling it a planet.--Ioshus Rocchio 20:25, 24 Augusti 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Planetula? Though I see someone has already used this for Ceres, perhaps thinking of Planetoides. --Iustinus

(er, or shoudl that be planeticula? --Iustinus 03:05, 25 Augusti 2006 (UTC))[reply]

Planetula = pumilio planeta (Anglice: dwarf planet) proposui, sed si quis melius inveniat nomen...

They don't like to be called "dwarfs": they prefer to be called "little planets." ;)
Aliae possibilitates: planetola, planetella, planetilla. IacobusAmor 14:59, 25 Augusti 2006 (UTC)[reply]

well the thing is, the normal rules say that the diminutive of a first declension noun (whose stem ends in a consonant) end in -ula, whereas a third declension ends in -icula. Greek first declension masculines like planetes sometimes end up with third declension forms. but I guess this word normally ends in -a in any case, so it's wholey first declension. but come to think of it, it is masculine, so it should be planetulus! (planetillus is also a possibility: double diminutive. But *planetola would be incorrect) --Iustinus 15:26, 25 Augusti 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Not I, but the IAU says dwarf planet to Pluto, Ceres a.s.o. Nostrum sit verbum Latinum pro eo invenire. Et planetilla et planetula diminutiva apta verbi planetae sunt; dubito an declinatio mutanda sit, quamvis scilicet masculina sint... Quod ad titulum pertinet: nihil refert utrum (planetula) an (astronomia) adiungatur. usor:Bohmhammel, 17.40, 6 Kal. Sept. 2006
I'm well aware of the source of the term, don't worry. But I'm pretty sure that diminutives are always -us -a -um for m f n. But I guess we shoudl see if we can find a concrete example of the diminutive form of a 1st declension masculine, just to be sure. And like you I don't really care what word we use to distinguish the title. --Iustinus 02:40, 28 Augusti 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Diminutiva verborum masculinorum a-declinationis difficillima sunt inventu. Tantum unum repperi: Nomina duorum fluviorum, nempe Mosa, -ae, m et Mosella, -ae (m, sed etiam f). usor:Bohmhammel, 21.24, 5 Kal. Sept. 2006

Pluto (astronomia)[fontem recensere]

What about avoiding this word in the title and moving the page to Pluto (astronomia)? --Roland (disp.) 21:26, 26 Augusti 2006 (UTC)[reply]
