I had a question about some of the declensions and thought someone might know where to go for help on the Internet. Thanks for any direction.

There are several Greek Forums. Here is a small list. Be cautious for while fairly good at languages at times the theology that may spur from them stinks. Of course, as Pilgrim stated your question most likely can be answered at The Highway.

Since the genitive plural all has the same article in the masc, fem, neut, in the 2, 1, 2 declensions is:

twn twn twn

and the case ending form genitive plural is wn for all words, how can I ever tell whether the word is masc, fem, or neut? With all the others I can use the article where the inflected ending is the same (like the gen sg. and the acc. pl.)

I hope that made sense. Thank you. (probably obvious, but w is omega).

Context. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bigglasses.gif" alt="" />

What specific verse are you dealing with?

No verse. Just learning the declensions.

Context is the simple answer, however the Genitive Case (as the others) has exceptions and special circumstances. I sent you an attachment with an explanation of the Genitive Case. It is 62 pages in length. If you desire I have another on just the article (app 93 pages) that will assist also. Let me know if you need it.
