Patterns of stem syncretism in grade-alternating declensions
define cohort sets, but these sets comprise pure form classes.
I (the es-type): traditional strong masculines (stan) and neuters (word, scip)
For instance, masculine and neuter nouns of the Latin second and fourth declensions
usually fell into the OE a-declension (e.g., s(e)alm 'psalm', decan 'dean', engel 'angel', disc 'dish', win 'wine', etc., from Latin psalmus, decanus, discus, vinum); only few of them were integrated into the weak nouns (e.g., cristalla 'crystal', from Lat.

There was another life beckoning, lurid tales of sexual conquest, all a sight more attractive than the advanced Latin declensions

Therefore, they employ a synchronic approach, based predominantly on inflectional endings, thus recognizing as-declension, a-declension, an-declension, and minor declensions

, and so on.
If white, like black, is often considered to be a noncolor (in the same way that a continuous sound spectrum is white noise), in this setting it seemed to exhaust the infinite spectrum of its declensions
. At times it was matte and pale, crushed by its own symbolic weight, as in Invisible Man, 1999, a painting by Tim Rollins & K.O.S.
The language-bull of the Rgveda that descended like a shower of rain (vrsabha means both a bull and a shower of rain in Patanjali) had already had four horns, three legs, two heads, seven hands, been bound in three-wise referring to as, Patanjali understands, the divine origin of linguistic structure such as four parts of speech (nouns, verbs, prefixes, particles), three times or tenses (past, present, future), two kinds of words (eternal, produced), seven declensions
