I'm trying to parse a few sets of Latin words divided into the categories: perfect participle, present participle and gerundives.
I'm struggling a bit. Particularly with gerundives. For instance, in explicandum I know that um seems to be a singular ending, neuter. ex is out; plic is to fold, but I keep finding and as in memorandum, but I'm not quite sure how to parse it. I think that there is a thematic vowel in there. On the whole, I'm supposed to parse it, provide the gloss of the elements and a meaning of the word, but I'm not able to parse the andin the gerundives. Is a single element or can I break it down further? Suggested readings are appreciated.
