Chapter 2: 1st
- Root of the Noun:
- The root of every noun is the genitive
singular minus it's genitive ending.
- When you learn nouns in your vocabulary,
the nominative and genitive singular endings as well as the
gender of the noun.
- If you know the NS and GS of a noun,
you will always be able to figure out which declension it
- Additionally, since the root is formed
from the genitive, you cannot decline the noun in later
declensions without knowing the genitive
