@Raztastic, for a good explanation and history about "bieno", see this discussion from the Duolingo EO Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/duolingo.esperanto.learners/permalink/531338803694808/
“Oblikvejo” (oblikva = slanted) might be a possibility. But it does not seem to be widely used at all, and oblikva can refer to a deviation from the vertical as well as from the horizontal.
“Klinejo” is also somewhat ambiguous as *klini' does not only mean “to tilt” but also “to bend (sth) down,” “to bow (sth).”
So there seem to be good reasons for the root “dekliv-.”
Says who? I think that a mountain slope would be an excellent place for a farm.
good point actually...which again shows that English not seldomly is the odd one (out) here. For example in German and in Swedish you compose new words so that problem is not so obvious there. There are enough examples, though, where words in English have gone from separarated via bound thru a dash to compond words:
- week end
door way ...etc
just mina dua cents
Tekstaro can be a dangerous tool. One thing for sure, though, monta deklivo and montdeklivo have to mean different things - from the principles of Esperanto word formation.
I don't think these numbers tell us anything about what the expressions mean or whether the author was using them correctly.
