1. Thank you—I looove your explanations. On this example: “Cui litterās scrībis? = To whom are you writing a letter?” would it be plural “letters?” Or what declension is litterās

    1. Hi Meggan, I’m so glad my explanations are helpful! “Litterās” is the accusative plural of the first declension noun “litterae, ārum”, which is a plural-only noun meaning “letter” (as in a communication that you write to someone) or “literature”. Since it is a plural-only noun, “litterās” could refer to one letter or multiple letters.

      The noun does technically have a singular – “littera, ae” – but the singular has a different meaning. “Littera” in the singular refers to a letter of the alphabet.

      I hope this helps!
