Lewis & Short

Parsing inflected forms may not always work as expected. If the following does not give the correct word, try Latin Words or Perseus.

ălĭorsum or aliorsus, also twice not contr. ălĭo-vorsum and ălĭō-versus, adv.

  1. I. Lit., directed to another place (other men, objects; cf.: alias, alibi, alio, etc.), in another direction, elsewhither, elsewhere (Aliorsum et illorsum sicut introrsum dixit Cato, Paul. ex. Fest. p. 27 Müll.; only ante- and post-class.).
    1. A. Of place: mater ancillas jubetaliam aliorsum ire, Plaut. Truc. 2, 4, 47 (where aliam aliorsum is like alius alio, etc.): jumentum aliorsum ducere, Gell. 7, 15: lupi aliorsum grassantes, App. M. 8, p. 209.
    2. B. Of persons: infantis aliorsum dati facta amolitio, Gell. 12, 1.
    3. C. Of things: sed id aliorsum pertinet, Gell. 17, 1.
  2. II. Fig., = in aliam partem or rationem, in another manner, in a different sense; so in Terence: aliorsum aliquid accipere, to receive something in another manner or otherwise, to take it differently: vereor, ne aliorsum atque ego feci acceperit, Ter. Eun. 1, 2, 1; cf. Plaut. Aul. 2, 4, 8, atqui ego istuc, Antrax, aliovorsum dixeram, with another design, in a different sense: alioversus, uncontr. in Lact. 1, 17, 1. Cf. Hand, Turs. I. pp. 241 and 242.
