General Ecclesiastical Latin Charts


Ecclesiastical Latin

 

This page supplies

prose prompts.

 

 

These study charts for Ecclesiastical Latin are, I think, more user-friendly than are some I've seen other places.

 


Declensions I-V

 

 

The vocative case is identical with the nominative in all declensions except for certain words in second declension masculine singular.

 

The locative case should be studied separately.

Most nouns in the first declension are feminine, except for a few proper nouns and those that describe jobs or occupations. There are no neuters.

Most nouns in the second declension are masculine or neuter, though a very few feminine nouns use masculine endings.

The third declension includes nearly half of all nouns in Latin. Between the first three declensions over 95% of all nouns in Ecclesiastical Latin are presented.

Most nouns in the fourth declension are masculine, a few neuters take their own endings, and very few feminine nouns herein use masculine endings.

Most nouns in the fifth declension are feminine, but a few masculine nouns use the same endings. There are no neuters. The fourth and fifth declensions are very small but they contain some important nouns for ecclesiastical usage.

Relative pronoun:

 

qui, quae, quod

 

Relative pronouns take the number and their gender from their antecedent; they take their case from how they operate in their clause.
