Synopsis

Lessons Six and Seven examined second declension nouns. We now come to a new declension, the first declension. There are eight paradigms in the first declension. However, only three of these eight paradigms will be examined in this lesson, with the remaining five to be studied in Lesson Nine. Thirty-nine MP3 audio files span this lesson to guide the student toward a consistent pronunciation of Greek vowels, consonants and words. At the conclusion of the lesson, the Study Guide integrates the principles presented in this lesson.
