I wish i could understand the word to use for third person singulsr. I used Disicpula as in previous question that was the declension used. But the declension is different in the this sentence. I know its because the declension is different. Can anyone point me to tables which explain the proper declensions to use please. ? I guess there is no other way to go .My father learnt in the late forties at grammer school and he said it was a question of memorising the declensions. Just a question of old fashioned study. Thanks in anticipation.
