I've only studied Homeric Greek for one semester...and that was almost a year ago. I need help on determining on which endings would be correct for saying "The Lord's." I know the Greek words, but am not sure which inflections to use for it to be possessive. Any help would be appreciated. Tessa
Hi Tessa,Lord is Kyrios, whose genitive case is Kyriou, so that, for example, Lord's prayer would be Proseuhe tou Kyriou (προσευχὴ τοῦ Κυρίου)Kyrios is a second declension noun; you can read more about such nouns
Thanks so much for your help!
