Now I think this sentence could mean either:Puellae aquam poētae (for the poet) portant.
orThe girls are carrying water to the poet. Using the Dative declension.
But I don't understand how it could mean for the poet.The girls are carrying the poet's water. Using the Genitive declension.
Now I ask you, what is the magical mystery secret to mastering Third Declension nouns? Or is this one of those things I have to memorize?homō
