"Panem nostrum velimus."

Translation:We would like our bread.

If panis is masculine, shouldn't it be nostrem?


The adjective noster follows the second declension in the masculine (and the neuter form nostrum also) so that gives us nostrum in the accusative singular when paired with a masculine noun in the accusative singular.

Adjectives match nouns in case, gender, and number but not in declension.
