Latia is to be the Latin language reimagined-- the rules of Ancient Latin are simplified and made easier to learn, while adding new verbs and nouns unused in most languages.

Basic Grammar

There are three Cases in Latia, unlike the old six Cases of Classical Latin:—

Nominative, Case of Subject and Address;
Genitive, Objective with of, or Possessive;
Accusative, Case of Direct Object.

There are five declensions in Latia, but they are simplified and share a common pattern.

First ā -ae
Second ŏ
Third ĭ / Some consonant -īs
Fourth ŭ -ūs
Fifth ē -ēī / -ĕī

Don't let these declensions confuse you! Latia is quite simple in declensions, and once you start declining nouns and such, it comes quite easily
