Chapter Summary

There are two traditional explanations for the form and meaning of Latin aliās 'at another time', which cannot be separated from alterās 'id'. and utrāsque 'on both occasions'. The account via a fem. acc. pl. ellipsis has little to recommend it, and the assumption of an elliptical uices is especially weak. Gerschner (cf. n. 2) asserts that the genitive of time theory is "more plausible" than the account via an elliptical accusative plural; but even this theory is distinctly unattractive. The conception of Lat. aliās developed here may shed some light on certain issues surrounding a series of other Latin adverbial forms in -ās often placed with it: in addition toalterās and utrāsque , already mentioned above , also interutrāsque, interuiās, and interpugnās .

Keywords: Gerschner; Latin aliās; utrāsque
