Return to "avuncular" page.

I seem to remember having come across the word "avuncular" used as a noun, as, for example, in the sentence "You are a perfect avuncular," whereas the word is most usually used as an adjective. Is its use as a noun recorded anywhere (perhaps as achaic usage), or might the speaker have meant to say "avunculus" instead of "avuncular"?
