    • Johannes Jacobus Dillenius, Plantarum rariorum horti elthamensis tomus alter, which followed Hortus elthamensis seu Plantarum rariorum (London, 1732), page 320–321 (the book has pictures):
      Pinguin nomine passim in Hortis Curiosorum & in Insulis Anglorum Americanis nota est haec planta, quae folia, modum nascendi & faciem cum Anana communem habet [...] Porro corona foliosa, quam Ananas gerit, huic generi deest: foliorum aculei rigidiores sunt, majores & minus, ac in Anana, crebri. [...] E mediis foliis scapus exit crassus, unciali & sesquiunciali diametro praeditus, teres, brevior & robustior, quam Ananae, minus etiam nudus, dictis foliis rubentibus, ad basim squamatim eum amplectenibus, cinctus, e quo dein superiora versus aliae squamae breviores, latae, membranaceae, exsuccae, obsolete albidae progrediuntur, & ex harum sinu flores & embryones in spicam pyramidatam digesti nascuntur, pediculo communi crasso brevi insidentes, inferius plures, tres, quatuor & quinque, superius pauciores, gemini & tandem solitarii.

      [Note: Here the word is of the first declension.]

Usage notesEdit

  • 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).
