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

1. pennus, a, um, adj. [pinna], pointed, sharp: pennum antiqui acutum dicebant: unde et avium pennae, quia acutae, Isid. Orig. 19, 19, 11 dub. (al. pinnum).

2. Pennus, i, m., a Roman surname: T. Quinctius Pennus, Liv. 4, 26.
