Not illustrated. 1900 Excerpt: ...that (time)," giving the secondary meanings "while, " as long as," and "until." The original meaning is shown in Plautus' Trinummus 1, 2, 109: circumspice dum te--"look around you awhile," and in Catullus, 62,45: Sic virgo dum intacta manet, dum cara suis est--"So the maiden, the while she remains unwedded, then is dear to her people." As dum in its original demonstrative function occurred only in parataxis, the examples of it as a demonstrative are not common, tho by no means rare. The intensive use of dum, so common in comedy, shows a trace of this demonstrative origin, as in the example quoted above from Plautus. Other examples show less temporal force, as Rudens, 3, 5, 5, et seq. tange dum.... age dum.... jube dum. The next step in the development is a construction almost on the dividing line between parataxis and hypotaxis, the use of dum.... dum in the sense of alias.... alias, Mercator, 2, 3, 14: Dum servi meiperplacet mihi consilium, dum rursum haudplacet. Closely allied to this construction is the use of dum correlating with turn, True. 2, 1, 33: Dumhabeat, turn atnet. In the last two examples we see the transition from parataxis to hypotaxis--from the substantive use to the conjunctive use of dum--from the meaning "awhile" or "the while" to simply "while." The last sentence quoted might be rendered in parataxis as dum habeat; turn amet. "He will (is to) have something a while; then (so long) let him love." The extreme hypotactic form would be amet dum habeat. We find, furthermore, that dum denoted, as many other words do, both location and extension, i. e., both "in that time" and "during that time"--the latter probably developed from the ...
