[*] 134. Of the Cardinals only ūnus , duo , trēs , the hundreds above one hundred, and mīlle when used as a noun, are declinable. [*] a. For the declension of ūnus , see § 113. It often has the meaning of same or only. The plural is used in this sense; but also, as a simple numeral, to agree with a plural noun of a singular meaning: as, ūna castra, one camp (cf. § 137. b). The plural occurs also in the phrase ūnī et alterī, one party and the other (the ones and the others). [*] b. Duo,1 two, and trēs, three, are thus declined:—
|ACC.||duōs (du o ）||duās||duo||trēs (tr īs ）||tria|
- mīlle modīs, in a thousand ways.
- cum mīlle hominibus, with a thousand men.
- “ mīlle trahēns variōs colōrēs ” (Aen. 4.701) , drawing out a thousand various colors.
[*] Note.--The singular mīlle is sometimes found as a noun in the nominative and accusative: as, mīlle hominum mīsit, he sent a thousand (of) men; in the other cases rarely, except in connection with the same case of mīlia : as, cum octō mīlibus peditum , mīlle equitum, with eight thousand foot and a thousand horse.[*] e. The ordinals are adjectives of the First and Second Declensions, and are regularly declined like bonus.
