I would like to exclaim in Latin, "how morbid!" This came up because just recently I read something morbid. But how would I say this? I am guessing that this is possible:
But when I made this guess, I wasn't sure which gender to assign the adjective. Is there a rule about which gender to assign the adjective in simple exclamations like these?
I have thought about this question a bit, and I think it might depend on the referent. If the implication is, "How morbid (you are)!" then it makes sense to assign the gender of the person being referred to. But if the implication is "How morbid (that is)!" then perhaps it should be neuter.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts. Also, if "morbidus" is not the best adjective to use, feel free to suggest a better one.
