• part of speech should be added for every word in the "part of speech" field
  • don't use capital letters except for proper nouns
  • use the letter “i” as opposed to the letter “j”: e.g., Iulius / Julius
  • use the letter “v” as opposed to consonantal “u” vir / uir

Nouns (Nominative/Genitive Version)

(always in singular form, except if they are always used in the plural, eg arma, armorum)

  • add the Latin word in the nominative and genitive singular
* add the English with no article

  • Add the English with the definite article as an "alternative English," and append it with an underscore _like this.  This will mean that this will be accepted as a correct answer but will not be displayed as a meaning during learning session (which other alternatives will be, very soon, once two-way testing has been introduced)

e.g. nomen, nominis

*The genitive may be shorthanded in an “alternative Latin” entry

e.g. nomen, -inis

  • for nouns which have a masculine and feminine form, the main form should be the masculine, and the feminine form should be in the Latin alternatives

e.g.: amicus, amici (Latin alternative) amica, amicae

*add the declension number in the "special properties" field. (1st D, 2nd D, 3rd D)


(always in singular form)

  • add the masculine version of the Latin

  • add the English

  • add the feminine and neuter versions (if different) as a Latin alternative
  • If the masculine and feminine are the same, but the neuter is different, list only the neuter as a Latin alternative

  • the declension group should be listed under “part of speech”
  • add the plural form(s) as an Latin alternative


(always infinitive)

  • add the Latin
  • add the English infinitive (with the 'to')
* add the English form without the 'to' in the English alternatives
  • add the conjugation in "special properties"
  • add the "principal parts" in the "extra information" field.
  • add the principal parts in the following order: first person singular present active indicative, present active infinitive, first person present active, perfect passive participle neuter nominative singular

e.g.: vidēre e.g.: (principal parts) videō, vidēre, vīdī, vīsum

  • sometimes the prefixed and non-prefixed forms of the verb have slightly different meanings: eg. monere / admonere. Be careful here, because often there will be a mix-up between the prefixed and non-prefixed definitions - add them as separate items.
