Basics of Declension

Unlike English, Latin is an inflected language (which means that the endings of nouns change based on its role in the sentence) and divides its nouns into groups called declensions. Each declension has predictable and fixed patterns for changing endings to go along with the changing grammar. This video discusses at a very basic level what exactly declensions are and how you can identify the declension of a noun given just the nominative and accusative cases.
