The above diagram shows how a Latin-thinking AI Mind might be trying to say "Humans think with minds" in Latin. As the idea forms with the Latin words "HOMINES COGITANT...," the Latin noun-phrase module LaNounPhrase() tries to fetch the ablative plural form of mens, mentis, the Latin word for "mind". If the ablative plural form is not found already in auditory memory, the LaNounPhrase() module calls the LaNounGen() module and supplies the starting point of the genitive form "MENTIS" as the audbase variable for deriving a stem and adding an inflection. The stem "MENT-" plus the ending "-IBUS" creates "MENTIBUS".
