Re: On *Achillobator*

  Oh, it's so nice to get mail in your mailbox from
the list, again ... rather than from the archives ....

  Back me up, Nick and Ben, but I do believe the -um
ending in Latin nouns is masculine/neutral and
requires a masculine/neutral plural modification (-i)
rather than a feminine modification (-a) as you,
Dennis, apply. My Oxford Pocket Latin Dictionary says
it's -i, and this is the rule I remember. But my Latin
is so sh**y it's not funny, as Nick and Ben have
trounced me on enough for. I really am better at
Russian, trust me [:)].
