Adjectival pronouns (Pronomina adjectiva)

The circumflex accent ( ˆ ) is used to denote the length of the vowels.


The declension of the adjectival pronouns follows the pattern of the adjectives of First and Second declensions, but Gen. sg. and Dat. sg. have the endings –ius and –i that are specific to the pronominal paradigm, cf. the declension of totus, a, um:
