It is pleasant to think that I represents the upheld finger of Latin Numerical symbols and that V might symbolize the hand itself with all five fingers; so, one branch of the V would be the extended thumb; the other, the remaining fingers for "six", "seven", "eight", and "nine"; we would then have VI, VII, VIII, and VIIII.
There are a number of different lipodystrophy syndromes. Some of them are present at birth (congenital) while others are acquired later. Some are genetic (inherited), others are not.
One lipodystrophy syndrome appears associated with the protease inhibitor drugs (preventing the production of new infectious viral articles) used in the treatment of AIDS.
In this lipodystrophy syndrome, the face, arms and legs become thin due to loss of subcutaneous fat. The skin becomes dry, the lips crack, and weight drops.
One or more letters, or phonetic symbols, are written or printed to approximate a spoken syllable.2.Etymology: from Anglo-French sillable, from Old French sillabe, from Latin syllaba, from Greek syllabe, "a syllable, several sounds or letters taken together"; literally, "a taking together" from syn-, "together" + stem of lambanein, "to take".

2. The use of a word that relates to, qualifies, or governs two or more other words but agrees in number, gender, or case with only one of them: "Neither my wife nor I want to" is an example of syllepsis, where "want" agrees with "I" but not "wife".

2. A special application of this term refers to tiny sea organisms which live on the mouthparts or mouth hairs of the Norwegian lobsters where they feed on the leftovers from the lobsters' meals and they seem to be harmless to their hosts.
They were discovered in 1995 by Danish scientists Reinhardt Kristensen (professor, curator of the Natural History Museum of Denmark) and Peter Funch (Associate Professor, Ecology & Genetics, Aarhus University, Denmark) and they were classified as Cycliophora, a new phylum of creatures.
Symbions have no legs, but each one keeps itself in place with a short stalk ending in an adhesive disc that attaches to the host lobster's mouth hairs.
Apparently there are two other species of symbions: one lives on American lobsters, and another, which may not be a distinct species, lives on European lobsters.
The Latin term is Symbion pandora.
