It is hard to deduce from the nom. sg. of 3rd declension nouns what the stem of the noun is unless the gen. is listed as well.annis wrote:2. Is there any way of finding the declension of a noun using Liddell? Cross checking some nouns with Liddell vs BBG it seems that if Liddell lists the genitive it's third declension and if it doesn't, the noun is first or second. Is that the rule?
