Fifth Declension

You can recognize the fifth declension by its genitive singuar ending (EI).

Fifth declension nouns are feminine except for dies and meridies.

There are some structures in the 5th declension which will treat dies (day) as feminine.

e.g. (On the appointed day = die constituta).DIES CONSTITUTA

Res is the only other common word that might be confusing. Res means thing, affair or matter. However, res can be used with other latin words to form idioms such as "the republic". (Res publica) Res will be declined in the 5th declension but publica will be declined in the first declension. RES PUBLICA
