Notes:

  • The Greek masculine and feminine nominative singular is μονοειδής (monoeidḗs), while the masculine and feminine vocative singular and the neuter nominative, accusative and vocative singular are μονοειδές (monoeidés). Maybe Latin preserved the short length of the epsilon (ε), or maybe it did not so that the declension became similar to Latin third declension adjectives of one ending (like felix).
