CE Level 2: 3rd Declension


rex, king (masculine)
case singular plural
nom. rex reg-es
acc. reg-em reg-es
gen. reg-is reg-um
dat. reg-i reg-ibus
abl. reg-e reg-ibus
nomen, name (neuter)
case singular plural
nom. nomen nomin-a
acc. nomen nomin-a
gen. nomin-is nomin-um
dat. nomin-i nomin-ibus
abl. nomin-e nomin-ibus

All three genders are found in the 3rd Declension, which is the biggest noun group.

Masculine and feminine nouns follow the pattern of rex.

The stem of a 3rd Declension noun is only clear from the accusative singular onwards (or from the genitive singular for neuter nouns).

The genitive plural sometimes ends in –ium.

Neuter nouns decline in the same way as masculine/feminine nouns, just with the two neuter rules applied.

Note that the nominative singular for all 3rd Declension nouns is a wildcard.

mare (sea) has the ablative singular mari.
