The Latin Student’s Set of Charts

These Latin charts have helped many students gain a big-picture view of the endings necessary in the Latin language. I’ve included where to find each rule in the Henle Latin Grammar for when you need more information. These charts are used along with the Henle Latin Grammar and Henle Latin Textbooks or other programs.

On the Noun, Pronoun, and Adjective charts, gender is identified by both words and color (blue, pink, yellow). Purple is either masculine or feminine (the 3rd declension plays by its own rules), and other colors signify that gender is not important in first or second-person pronouns or reflexive pronouns.

On the Verb Charts, verbs are broken down by color into sections. The stem is in black. The conjugation signifier matches the header at the top of a chart. Tense signifiers are in blue on indicative charts and orange or pink on subjunctive charts. The active voice personal signs are in red, and the passive voice personal signs are in purple. This breaks verbs down into discernible patterns and makes the patterns memorable. Latin also has Primary and Secondary Tenses, which often work together in a sentence. This is also indicated in the verb charts

Charts are included for Nouns, Personal Pronouns, Demonstrative Pronouns and Adjectives, Interrogative Adjectives, and all Verb forms (Active Indicative, Passive, and Subjunctive). They are organized so that patterns are easy to recognize in both declensions and conjugations.
