One of the vocabulary words in Lesson 21 is mare, maris. There is a note that says that mare is an i-stem noun and that the genitive plural is marium. However, since mare is neuter, wouldn't there be more differences in the declension than just the genitive plural? I couldn't find any reference in the teacher manual as to how to decline a 3rd declension neuter i-stem, but I looked it up online and it appears there are four differences from a regular 3rd declension neuter noun - the abl. singular, nom. plural, gen. plural, and acc. plural. The students are asked to decline mare in the quiz, but I cannot see that this has been covered in the lesson. Did I miss it?
