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

assentātor (ads-), ōris, m. [assentor], one who assents flatteringly, a flatterer (most freq. in Cic.).

  1. I. Lit.: semper auget adsentator id, quod is, cujus ad voluntatem loquitur, vult esse magnum, Cic.
