Lanie (laniedragon) Just what the title says. And I'll give you a verb, too, so that you can make sentences.

MODEL NOUN: TERRA (Terr-ah, Earth, land) (All other First Declension nouns will follow this model with their endings)
Nominative: Terr-a (Subject, land)
Genitive: Terr-ae (Possessive, of the land, the land's)
Dative: Terr-ae (Indirect object, To/For the land)
Accusative: Terr-am (Direct object, Land)
Ablative: Terr-ã (Prepositional object, By/with/from the land)

Nom. Terr-ae (Subject, lands)
Gen. Terr-arum (Possessive, of the lands, the lands')
Dat. Terr-is (Indirect object, To/For the lands)
Acc. Terr-as (Direct object, Lands)
Abl. Terr-is (Prepositional object, By/with/from the lands)

Lanie (laniedragon) Retain this knowledge for later, as ALL of the nouns in Latin will follow the Nominative, Genitive, Dative, etc. with the usage in sentences. See the next thread for first Declension Vocab with the verb I promised.
