Nouns and Noun Endings. This week your vocabulary consists of 1st declension nouns (ending in -a) and 2nd declension nouns (masculine nouns ending in -us and neuter nouns ending in -um). The noun endings for these declensions are probably some of the very first things that you learned in Latin! For your quiz this week, make sure you are perfectly familiar with the 1st and 2nd Declension Noun Endings, singular and plural.

For the quiz, you will need to be able to "fill in the blank" with an appropriate form of the noun. You will be given the dictionary form of the noun, singular or plural. You will then supply the appropriate form based on what the sentence requires: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, or ablative. You will take the number, singular or plural, from the dictionary form that you are given. Example:

(monachus) Video ___________. Answer: monachum (accusative singular)

(puellae) Dabimus vinum _________. Answer: puellis (dative plural)

  1. (litterae) - Semper mihi ______ scribunt.
  2. (mundus) - Sic transit gloria _____.
  3. (via) - Fata _____ invenient.
  4. (angeli) - Cantica _____ pulcherrima sunt.
  5. (populus) - Quid rex dixit _____?
  6. (equi) - Non habemus _____.
  7. (angelus) - Ab _____ salvati sunt.
  8. (servi) - Dominus _____ vinum non dat.
  9. (terra) - Timeo ____ motum.
  10. (puellae) - Ubi est _____ domus?
  11. (pericula) - Scribo de _____ nostrae vitae.
