Examples: guma - engl.: man (masc.) cyrice - engl.: church (fem.) Sg.n. guma cyrice Sg.a. guman cyrican Sg.g. guman cyrican Sg.d. guman cyrican Pl.n. guman cyrican Pl.a. guman cyrican Pl.g. gumena cyricena Pl.d. gumum cyricum Next I will specify case, number, gender, declensional/conjugational class, weak/strong inflexion of the following forms from the Cædmon text.
