Would "ave, iuvenis" be correct?
first thing that i would hear if i go back to the medieval age by time machine
Is iuvenes the plural of iuvenis?
iuvenes is the nominative, accusative, and vocative plural.
Why isn't it, 'Salve, iuvene'?
The -e ending for the vocative singular only occurs with second declension nouns that have a nominative that ends in -us. All other declensions just use the same form as the nominative.
Iuvenis is third declension, not second.
Thank you so much!
