Parsing inflected forms may not always work as expected. If the following does not give the correct word, try Latin Words or Perseus.
* noctesco, ĕre, v. n. inch. [id.], to draw towards night, to grow dark: omnia noctescunt, Furius ap. Non. 145, 11; and Gell. 18, 11, 3 (where the word is censured).
