Etymology 1Edit

ille +‎ -ce



illic m (feminine illaec, neuter illuc or illoc)

  1. he, she, it, yonder, that, overthere
  • The declension mostly followed that of hic, which in some cases would yield forms indistinguishable from forms of ille. In other cases, this would yield forms which simply are not attested: *illuius for the genitive singular and *illuic for the dative singular. Those forms and the forms overlapping with forms of ille are not listed here; only attested non-overlapping forms are.
  • In some sources the particle -ce was added directly to forms of ille in such overlapping cases; thus, illīusce is attested for the genitive singular of all genders, illīsce for the dative and ablative plurals and illōsce and illāsce for respectively the masculine and feminine accusative plural. Other forms may also be attested. Note also that illucce (illud + -ce) is attested for the neuter nominative singular, which is apparently redundant to illuc.
