Latin Lesson #27: The Fifth Declension

Every time I write that I think of the ’70s band, The Fifth Dimension.  Anyway, the latest Latin lesson is up, on the fifth declension and the formation of adverbs from third declension adjectives.  That means we’re pretty much done with nouns and adjectives, except for expanding our vocabulary.  So I think the next lesson will go back to verbs and dive into the passive voice.  Every time I try to find liturgical passages to use in the lessons, they either use the passive voice or subjunctive mood, which I haven’t covered yet.  Those are all over the place in prayers, and much more common than they are in English.
