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

ănăpaestus, a, um, adj., = ἀνάπαιστος (struck back).

  1. I. Pes, the metrical foot, anapœst: ⏑⏑– (i. e. a reversed dactyl), Cic. Tusc. 2, 16, 37; id. de Or. 3, 47; also absol. without pes, id. Or. 56.
  2. II. ănă-paestum, i, n. (sc. carmen), a poem in anapœsts, Cic. Tusc. 3, 24, 57; id. Or. 56; Gell. praef. 20.
