I am stuck in the A-Declension for feminine nouns. Any help would be appreciated! I felt like I was on roll in the A-Declension for feminine nouns! But then I got to this point:
"The gender of a noun is indicated by placing it after the corresponding form of the definite article, as αγορα, ας, η, where η signifies that αγορα is feminine."
This has been confusing me, and there's no further explanation or example. These are my questions:
Does "it" refer to the gender or the the noun. And when they say the corresponding form of the definite article, how do I know what the "definite article" is? And do ας and η go at the beginning of the word or end (i.e. ας αγορα or αγορας or η αγορα or αγορη)? It makes sense that they would go at the beginning as η αγορα, because the conjugation doesn't show words that end with α suddently obtaining a η at the end of the noun for any of the cases, but I want to double check.
