Forms of the Second Declension: Fill-in-the-Blank Chart

The answers to the chart are provided on a separate page.

Goals: Vowels and Stress. You should absolutely know the endings for the words and hopefully you will also be able to mark the word stress too! Mark an acute accent mark where the word stress goes.

Circumflex: On the answers, you will see that sometimes there is an acute instead of the circumflex that you see in the dictionary form. Since you are not making a distinction between acute stress or circumflex stress in your pronunciation, you don't need to worry about the circumflex at all! Just use an acute accent mark whenever you are marking the word stress. Don't worry right now about learning the rules about when to use a circumflex, since it has absolutely no effect on your pronciation whatsoever.

Need a hint? Use your mouse to highlight the contents of the cell that you are stuck on - the answers are there, just "whited out" (i.e. white letters on white background).

Printing. Please don't print the chart! Instead, write out the complete chart yourself. That way you will get practice writing the nominative forms also.

Flashcards. As an alternative to this chart, you can just use your flashcards, making sure that you practice the accusative, genitive, and dative forms, singular and plural - not just the dictionary form.

Make noise! If you do not make noise while writing the chart or using your flaschards, you are not learning Greek! Really! It's the truth: ἀλήθεια! So please make lots of noise. :-)
