The first feature of comparison between case suffixes and adjective terminations lies in the fact that a variety of semantic content may be found in one suffix according to its context. The second is, that several terminations may be used with one and the same semantic content, also according to context. That is, there are many contexts where the necessary content is simply forced upon the termination. The result is then, that any termination in such context must have the required meaning. The number of suffixes that thus clearly interchange with--oso--and--lento--is, as far as has been discovered in this investigation, fourteen; to which has been added one example wherein the prefix in--equals--oso--. This identity of semantic content may be seen most clearly where the same stem uses two or more terminations with the same or a similar noun limited. Equivalence may be shown in those instances where one stem confines itself to one termination, while a similar stem uses a different termination with the same or a similar noun limited. Examples of each kind are considered valid for the purpose of demonstrating parallelism with case suffix phenomena, and are used indifferently wherever convenient. §8. The following terminations are used with semantic content equivalent to that of--oso--as illustrated in the parallel passages quoted. I.--??--. "nec vero dubito quin exitiosum bellum impendeat." Cic, A., IX, 9, 2. "bellum terra et mari comparat, non iniustum Ule quidem, sed cum pium, tum etiam necessarium, suis tamen civibus exitiabile, nisi vicerit, calamitosum, etiamsi vicerit." id., A., X, 4, 3. 19 These two examples go well together. There is no difference...
