Usage notes

edit
  • The feminine gender could belong to the indeclinable noun ananas only.
    Latin first declension nouns ending in -ās (genitive -ae) usually are borrowed from Ancient Greek and are masculine in Latin and Ancient Greek (compare Appendix:Ancient Greek first declension). By analogy the declinable noun ananas could be masculine too (like translingual Ananas m, Modern Greek ανανάς m (ananás), French ananas m, Italian ananas m, Portuguese ananás m, Spanish ananás m).

Declension

edit
  • Indeclinable or first declension Greek. When declinable:

First-declension noun (masculine Greek-type with nominative singular in -ās).

Case Singular Plural
Nominative ananās ananae
Genitive ananae ananārum
