@CarpeLanam: Re: chocolate; I found socolata and chocolata, on Vicipaedia, but not chocolatum - should we amend or add? I've added wiktionary:socolata and amended wiktionary:chocolata with the Vicipaedia references. JimKillock (discusscontribs) 19:29, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

@JimKillock: Walter Redmond's glossarium has socolata, socolatae potio, and chocolatum. I've seen chocolatum elsewhere and longer ago but socolata is probably more common in recent popular use, e.g. Harrius Potter. I just preferred the similarity to English and the neuter form is a simple one to teach the accusative. Chocolatum is also a homeopathic remedy, apparently! But no strong preference and the one preferred on Vicipaedia should be recognized. --CarpeLanam (discusscontribs) 03:22, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

@CarpeLanam: Yes, digging around some more I did find some use of chocolatum although nothing in any dictionary as yet. It's also used as a word the colour chocolate in some biology names of bacteria it seems. JimKillock (discusscontribs) 17:26, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
