    Latina Christiana Ludere Latina parse strings lesson 8

    My son is doing Latina Christiana lesson 8. In the Ludere Latine book, we are on lesson 8 Parse Strings. The answer key says moras is accusative plural. The book chart says the accusative plural ending is -os. Why is it moras and not moros?

    Thank you for any help!

    Hello,

    Mora is a first declension noun, which means it uses a certain set of endings to show each case and number. For the first declension, the accusative plural ending is -as. You are correct in saying that -os is an accusative singular ending, but for nouns of the second declension only.

    Incidentally, moros IS the accusative plural of a completely different word, morus, which is a mulberry tree. That's not a vocab word in LC or the Forms, though, because how often are we going to talk about mulberries, really?

      Never mind. I just realized that moras is a first declension noun, not second declension. I’m learning too!
