PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

rosa f (genitive rosae); first declension

  1. a rose
    • c. 37 BCE – 30 BCE, Virgil, Georgicon 4.267
      Proderit et tunsum gallae admiscere saporem / arentesque rosas []
      It's good too to blend a taste of pounded oak-apples / and dry rose leaves []
    • 61 CEc. 112 CE, Pliny the Younger, Epistulae 5
      Inde etiam rosas effert, umbrarumque frigus non ingrato sole distinguit. Finito vario illo multiplicique curvamine recto limiti redditur nec huic uni, nam viae plures intercedentibus buxis dividuntur.[1][2]
      Farther on, there are roses too along the path, and the cool shade is pleasantly alternated with sunshine. Having passed through these manifold winding alleys, the path resumes a straight course, and at the same time divides into several tracks, separated by box hedges.[3][4]
      Even roses grow there, and the warmth of the sun is delightful as a change from the cool of the shade. When you come to the end of these various winding alleys, the boundary again runs straight, or should I say boundaries, for there are a number of paths with box shrubs between them.[5]
  2. (transferred sense, endearment) dear, rose, sweetheart, love; a word of endearment
    Mea rosa.My love.
    Rosa!Honey!
    Tu mihi rosa es.You are my sweetheart.
