Dude,I know how you feel. My ancient Greek grammar book is in old old old Norwegian, it doesn't make things any easier. I feel very lucky we got an english text book! Reading everything in Danish/Swedish-mode is a bitch! Can't believe it is ignoring participles tho. I am gonna study it now,because they come up CONSTANTLY in Plato (Phaedon) so I better figure it out quick. I'll let you know if I find any easy patterns. All I know for now is that for participles ending in -wv (base-ovt) follow declination like 3rd.declination nouns in 3rd.class (bases ending in -v,-p (yes I mean R) and -ovt (masc. NOM-wn,ACC-a,GEN-os,DAT-i,plural:N-es,A-as,G-wn,D-si) (neutrum too,but change Nom/Acc obviously) while feminine follows 1st declination!
