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

acclāmātĭo (adc.), ōnis, f. [acclamo], a calling to, an exclamation, shout.

  1. I. In gen.: acuta atque attenuata nimis, Auct. Her. 3, 12, 21; the calling of the shepherd, Col. 7, 3, 26; so in plur., id. 6, 2, 14.
  2. II. In partic.
    1. A. A cry of disapprobation (so esp. in the time of the republic): ei contigit non modo ut adclamatione, sed ut convicio et maledictis impediretur, Cic. Q. Fr. 2, 3, 2; 2, 1, 2; quanto jam levior est adclamatio, C. Rabir. 18; id. de Or. 2, 83, 339 etc.; Suet. Dom. 23 al.
