    Third Form Unit II Review

    On Worksheet 3, the student is asked to decline cornu and genu. Those are both neuter nouns of the fourth declension, right? If so, shouldn't they be declined the same way? The teacher answer key lists the following for genu in the plural (which seems correct):

    genua
    genuum
    genibus
    genua
    genibus

    But then it lists this for cornu in the plural, which I don't understand:

    cornua
    cornuum
    cornua
    cornuum
    cornua

    Is the latter list mistaken, or am I missing something? Thanks for your help.

    You are correct. The latter should be

    cornua
    cornuum
    cornibus
    cornua
    cornibus

    Thank you for catching that!
