Nomen: English Derivatives?
Dear Latin Teacher,
Does the Latin word nomen
have any English derivatives besides name and nominate?
I need 4 more.
There too many for me to name them all. English derivatives from the Latin root nomen
: a set or system of names or terms.denomination
: a name or designation, esp. one for a class of things.nominal
: being such in name only, i.e. not significant.nominative
: every Latinist's favorite
- noting a case having as its function the indication of the subject of a finite verb.nominee
: a person nominated.denominator
: something shared or held in common; standard. Also a math term: see math lesson plans
: having a bad reputation, a poor name.ignomy
: disgrace; dishonor.
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
