We have a site search specially designed for quickly finding answers by typing a word or two instead of writing up an entire question. Please use the site search, especially since typing a word or two into a search box is much, much, much faster than writing up an entire question.

comment Declined Latin nouns in English prose
I can find a jocular example of anything in any language. But my understanding is that this question is interested in finding out if this is done systematically and for reasons other than lulz. With that in mind, I would like to maintain the answer is "no, people do not do this in English" rather than "yes, people do this in Dutch".

"Once a word has been borrowed into a language, it adheres to the grammar for normal words in that language." Or can you tell me what the instrumental case of perestroika is?

comment Declined Latin nouns in English prose
I have never once heard anyone perform a reductionem in German. It's always reductio. But that is really beside the point seeing how Modern English does not even have a dedicated accusative form for nouns, so it is exceptionally unlikely that any English speaker would even think of creating such a thing. If you perform a dance, never a dancen, then you perform a reductio, never a reductionem.
