Pronunciation edit

Noun edit

dēns m (genitive dentis); third declension

  1. (anatomy) a tooth
    • 43 BCEc. 17 CE, Ovid, Tristia 1.77-78:
      nec procul ā stabulīs audet discēdere, sīquā
      excussa est avidī dentibus agna lupī.
      Nor [does a] lamb dare to withdraw far from the sheep-folds, if it was ever torn from the teeth of a hungry wolf.
      (The flexibility of Latin word order allows Ovid to heighten tension by enjoining the words for lamb and wolf. Translations vary; was the lamb ever torn “by the teeth” of a wolf, or did a shepherd once rescue the lamb “from the teeth” of a wolf?)
    • 1803, Joanne Nep. Alber, Interpretatio Sacrae Scripturae per Omnes Veteris et Novi Testamenti Libros[1], 30:14, page 172:
      prō dentibus gladiōs habent
      They have swords for teeth.
  2. (metonymically) a tooth, point, spike, prong, tine, fluke, or any tooth-like projection
  3. (figuratively) tooth of envy, envy, ill will
    1. tooth of a destroying power
