Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: body, he never will be old at heart. non solum re et sententia sed verbis quoque hoc interdictum ita esse compositum (Csecin. 86), this prohibition was so conceived not only in substance and effect, but also in language. homo mea sententia prudentissimus (Csecin. 22), a man, in my opinion, very wise. equitatu pulsi erant (B. G. vii. 68), they had been beaten in the cavalry fight. NOTE.--To this head are to be referred many expressions where the ablative expresses that in accordance with which anything is or is done. But as the Romans had no such categories as we make, it is impossible to classify all uses of the ablative. Hence the ablative of specification is closely akin to that of manner, and to many ablatives which have been developed from other fundamental ideas. Thus, --meo iure, with perfect right; but, meo modo, in my fashion. mea sententia, in my opinion; but also more formally, ex mea sententia. Here the sense is the same, but the first ablative is specification; the second, source. propinquitate coniiinctos atque natura (Laelius 50), closely allied by kindred and nature. Here the ablative is not different in sense from those above, but no doubt is a development of means.' qui vincit viribus (Laelius 55), who surpasses in strength. Here it is impossible to tell whether viribus is the means of the superiority or that in respect to which one is superior. neque enim villa alia condicione bella gesserunt (B. G. vii. li), for on no other terms did they carry on wars. a. The Supine in-u, used chiefly with adjectives, is equivalent to an ablative of specification (cf. 114. b, 303): as, --mirabile dictu, marvellous to tell. Note.--In this use of the supine, dative and ablative constructions have, no doubt, been confounded. more
