    Seems so, though it isn't common. The OLD mentions two examples of it meaning "room/apartment".

    I thought aedis was originally some kind of room.

    That's likely the case.

    Well, yes, I don't know how many citations you will find for the meaning "room" or "apartment", but the meaning of "house" for the plural comes from the idea that it is something that consists of many rooms.

    if it is my turn, I have one.
    partem floris velique sum.

    It isn't really. The turn is taken by the person who answered the previous riddle, who in this case is Dantius. Since it's been some time, though, and it doesn't seem like he's inspired to post, it's OK if you step in.
    Pars floris velique es. Hum. Nescio quid sis.

    Pars in place of partem, (I forgot predicate nominative), but I think sum is right? I meant, “I am a part of a flower and (of) a sail.”

    Yes, of course. I was saying "you are..." addressing you.

    Nomen floris partis est Anglicum. Nomen veli partis est Latinum, sed idem in lingua altra sunt

    That sounds like the mast of a sail.

    I thought a mast was a malus in Latin ... which I don't think is part of a flower o_O
  15. john abshire Active Member

    Yes, it is not malus

    Cogita pannum veli.
    Sine panno
  18. john abshire Active Member

    I am sorry bitmap. I just realized I was confusing sine and intra. I meant cogita intra pannum.
