Here, irregular and nonstandard noun declensions will be listed.


There are words ending in -e, e.g. farwe "color, paint" (noun, 3rd declension, hard). They are declined like any other noun of corresponding declension, but with -e removed. Such nouns will be marked in lexicon by e after the declension type, e.g. Ihe (1st declension, hard, -e)

Suffixed nounsEdit

Suffixed nouns have a separate declension, differing in the formation of plurals. These will be marked in lexicon by x after declension type, e.g. Ihx (1st declension, hard, suffix). These are rather irregular, but there are certain rules: all non-class-2 suffixed nouns form plurals with umlaut when possible and with -e (like adjectives) in other cases, and all class 2 nouns form plurals like normal class 2 nouns.

The declension of a suffix -er is presented in the table below:

Singular Plural
Nominative -er -er+I
Accusative -(e)ran
Genitive -(e)ris -(e)ren
Dative -(e)ri -(e)rim

Latin nounsEdit

Nouns borrowed from Latin are pretty rare and mainly are the names of countries (and therefore ending in -a), but still need to be memorized due to their irregular declension. Most other Latin nouns decline like normal nouns with ending removed.

Singular Plural
Nominative -a
-e (non-country name)
Accusative -es
Genitive -es -en
Dative -e -em
