Usage notes

The nominal form, ‘a host’, has been used for highly favourable circumstances and natural forces (e.g. ‘This weather is a host for our weekend trip’), especially those bringing material wellbeing (e.g. ‘The invention of the bicycle proved a host for Τηλέμαχος and his family, but he died poor nonetheless’), since Proto-Lemizh. In modern usage, the inner nominative fills this role.
