Grammatical gender Despite an early use in the masculine (Petiver, 1702-1706; Da Costa, 1778), the grammatical gender of Aporrhais is feminine because the suffix –id- indicates feminine nouns in ancient Greek. Alternative etymologies – Aporrhais from the Greek “aporrheo”, to flow away (Woodward, 1851-56), the Greek “apò”, from, and the Latin “radius”, ray (Settepassi, 1971) and the Greek “apo;”, asunder, and “raiw”, I break (Fretter & Graham, 1981) – are clearly unrealistic. [details]
