We studied the declension of a-ending masculine nouns at the beginning of this course. We learnt about usage of various cases with the help of these nouns. In the later units we learnt a-ending neuter nouns and feminine nouns ending in ā, i, ī, u and ū.

We will now study the declension tables of masculine and neuter nouns ending in vowels other than a, i.e. the declension of :

  • i-ending,
  • ī-ending,
  • u-ending, and
  • ū-ending masculine and neuter nouns.

The declension tables will be followed by new Pali words which have a similar declension pattern. We will also translate some sentences from the suttas which contain declined forms such as masculine and neuter nouns.
