If the request comes early in the morning to celebrate an early N.O.M., the priest could always say that he has scheduled a later T.L.M. and chooses not to binate.
Priests can be allowed but never required to binate or trinate.
I certainly knew the two numbers I'd played; I knew I'd told him to com-binate only one of them.
The _spikelets_ are binate, one sessile and another pedicelled, both bisexual and alike, lanceolate, 1/8 to 1/6 inch long, callus is minute and bearded with spreading silky hairs 1/2 inch long.
Spikelets are binate, one sessile and one pedicelled; the pedicelled spikelets are dissimilar from the sessile and both usually 2-flowered.
The _spikelets_ are binate, one sessile and the other pedicelled.
The spikes are very short at the ends of very fine branches, solitary, binate or fascicled, with very fragile rachis; joints are very short, slender with cupular tips.
Spikelets are small, 1-flowered, binate, one sessile and the other pedicelled, the sessile spikelet is bisexual and the pedicelled is female and rarely bisexual; sessile spikelets are deciduous with the contiguous joint of the rachis and the pedicel.
The spikelets are binate one sessile and the other shortly pedicelled, with the callus villous.
Stems are erect or decumbent below or ascending from a creeping base, rooting at the nodes, smooth, glabrous and much branched, varying in height, from 1 to 2 feet; branches are short, slender and sometimes even capillary, with _nodes_ bearded or not in branches ending in solitary spikes, and completely glabrous when they end in binate spikes.
