Some scholars, however, are so perverse and
obstinate in their passion for analogy, that they say
audaciter in preference to audacter, the form preferred
by all orators, and emicavit for emicuit, and conire
for coire. We may permit them to say audivisse,
scivisse, tribunale and faciliter, nor will we deprive
them of frugalis as an alternative for frugi:
