Updated: Jul 27, 2022

  • THE WORD TO BE CAN NEVER HAVE A DIRECT OBJECT. iNSTEAD, IT HAS A PREDICATE NOMINATIVE, PREDICATE ADJECTIVE, OR A PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE.

  • gENITIVE FOLLOWS WHAT IT POSSESSES USUALLY.

  • vERBS OF GIVING, SHOWING, OR TELLING (THEIR SYNONYMS OR ANTONYMS) WILL HAVE A DATIVE CASE AFTER THEM.

  • aDJECTIVES AGREE wITH THEIR NOUNS IN GENDER, CASE, AND NUMBER.

  • nEUTER nOMINATIVE AND ACCUSATIVE SINGULAR ARE ALWAYS THE SAME; NEUTER PLURAL nOMINATIVE AND aCCUSATIVE END IN A.

  • vERBS AGREE WITH THEIR SUBJECT IN NUMBER AND PERSON.

  • Pronouns agree with their antecedent in gender and number; their case is determined by their use in their own clause.

  • tRANSLATE WITH: vOCABULARY, VERB, nOMINATIVE, aCCUSATIVE, EVERYTHING ELSE.

  • aDJECTIVES COME IN TWO FLAVORS: fIRST AND sECOND DECLENSION ADJECTIVES AND THIRD DECLENSION ADJECTIVES.
