Each declension table includes a short description of the respective word type and followed by a list of examples that are to decline according to the model word. Examples subject to consonant gradation are indicated accordingly. The examples are organized into easy-to-learn rhythmic groups. The book also includes a grammatical introduction with informative charts and tables. The focus of the introduction is on the formation of cases and stems in singular and plural.Consonant gradation and the alternation of strong and weak stems is presented in an easy-to-understand way.
