Usor:Vladisdead editsummaried: nonne et nomen et numerus est?

Utor a numeri quia indeclinabilis sunt, sed nomina declinunt. Aliter potes dicere quod numerus genus nominis est.
(I use numeri because they're indeclinable, while nomina decline. You could also say that a number is a kind of nomen.)
The distinction may be unnecessary altogether. —Myces Tiberinus 16:36 sep 23, 2004 (UTC)
I meant nomen as in "name", rather than "noun".:) Quintus,-i is also a Roman praenomen. (Probably related to English Quince/Quincy) --Vladisdead 03:25 sep 24, 2004 (UTC)
Ah, pesky semantic drift. You're right, it should be added. —Myces Tiberinus 05:11 sep 24, 2004 (UTC)

Just as 'nomen' is confusing above, it could also be confusing here as a category. Maybe something like "Nomina hominum" or "nomina personalia" ? (or perhaps further, with subcategories like first names, last names, etc.) —Myces Tiberinus 14:10 oct 29, 2004 (UTC)

Works for me. "Praenomina hominum" and "Nomina hominum" then? --Vladisdead 07:24 oct 30, 2004 (UTC)
