Latin

posted by .

I'm a little bit confused about Latin declensions. I understand that there's first and second declension nouns and adjectives (as well as a handful of other declensions which we haven't learned yet). But what if you want to mix declensions, and decline a first declension adjective with a second declension noun? (For example big shape. Would that be Formi Magnae? I'm confused!) Thank you so much.

    Yes, you're right. As long as the adjective matches the noun in number(s. or pl.), gender (m., f., or n.), and case (nom., gen., etc.), they can work together no matter the declension.
