I really hope that you are enjoying learning Latin! If you haven’t already done so please do visit the Latin: Revision, Exercises & Games’ section of ClassicalFix. Here you’ll find some light-hearted resources designed to help you monitor your progress and check your understanding. I’ll be adding more activities & resources to this particular section in due course.

But now, it’s time to move onto Section 1D…

So far we have looked at 1st & 2nd conjugation verbs, remember for example ámō (I love, I am loving, I do love etc.) & hábe-ō (I have, I am having, I do have etc.). But now we move onto the next conjugation of Latin verbs.

3rd conjugation verbs – Present indicative active.

Important Points to Remember!

  1. In verbs of the 3rd conjugation you’ll notice a key vowel – a short i is seen throughout.
  2. The short -i- in 3rd conjugation verbs DOES NOT form part of the stem.
  3. Normal imperatives of verbs in the 3rd conjugation end in -e- & -ite- & the vowels in these endings are short.

nómen

Important Points to Remember!

  1. All neuter nouns have the same forms for the nominative & accusative in both the singular & plural.
  2. All 3rd declension nouns that end in –men are neuter & also follow the same pattern of nōmen.
  3. nōmen is a consonant stem noun, but there are also 3rd declension i-stem nouns, but don’t worry too much about this for the time being, just work on remembering how a particular nouns declines.

To finish off our grammar work on Section 1D, I want to introduce the ‘Interrogative Pronoun’, then for revision, we’ll look at some more examples of 1st / 2nd declension adjectives & some more 2nd declension nouns.

But first…

What Is an Interrogative Pronoun?

An interrogative pronoun is a word which is used to make asking questions easy. There are just five interrogative pronouns. Each one is used to ask a very specific question or indirect question. Some, such as “who” and “whom,” refer only to people. Others can be used to refer to objects or people.
