ArticleEdit

ly (definite)

  1. the (only in very specific circumstances)
    • 13th c., Thomas Aquinas, Scriptum super Sententiis
      Quia ly "se" potest esse ablativi casus... (Since the "se" can be in the ablative case...)

Usage notesEdit

  • In nearly all circumstances, Latin does not use articles. "Ly" is not used to indicate the definiteness of a noun, but rather to indicate that the following word is being mentioned rather than used. As such, "ly <word>" can be accurately translated as "the word <word>" in most cases. "Ly" is only found in medieval and later Latin.
