I'm studying Classical Arabic at the moment from a book written quite some time ago. It uses Latin names for the various grammatical terms and I am having some difficulty in understanding them.
For example, the terms: nomen substantivium and nomen adjectivum. From what I could gather nomen is Latin for noun? If so then what is nomen adjectivum? I know this is referring to adjectives but what is nomen doing prefixed to adjectivum?
Also what is the difference between nomen demonstrativum and nomen conjunctivium?
