The Latin word for word is?
Nouns in Latin are declined, unlike English. How you use a noun depends on context, not word order. Each Latin noun follows the rules of 1 of five declensions and each declension has 6 cases: Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative, and Ablative (Vocative, a simple declaration, is identical to Nominative) Verbum, falls into the 2nd declension (like Bellum -- war.) Also, Latin nouns have 3 genders, masculine, feminine and neuter. Verbum (word) is a neuter noun. Thus a Latin reader would understand what's written by the noun's ending, not its placement in a sentence. Verbum, Verbi (n) Singular N. verbum -- word (subject) G. verbi -- of the word (the word's) possessive D. verbo -- to/for the word (indirect object) A. verbum -- the word (direct object) A. verbo -- by way of the word/ thanks to the word V. verbum -- O!
