|Nom. νεώ-ς (Ionic νηό-ς)||N. A. νεώ (Ionic νηώ)||Nom. νεῴ (Ionic νηοί)|
|Gen. νεώ (“ νηοῦ)||G. D. νεῴν (“ νηοῖν)||Gen. νεών (“ νηῶν)|
|Dat. νεῴ (“ νηῷ)||Dat. νεῴς (“ νηοῖς)|
|Acc. νεών (“ νηό-ν)||Acc. νεώς (“ νηούς)|
a. So ὁ λεώς
b. There are no neuter substantives belonging to the Attic declension in standard classical literature; but neuter adjectives ( cross289) end in -ων.
c. νεώς and most words of this declension owe their forms to transfer of quantity ( cross34) or to shortening ( cross39). Thus, νεώς is from νηός ( = Doric να_ός), νεών from νηόν; νεῴ is from νηῷ. λαγώς is contracted from λαγωός.
d. In the accusative singular some words end in -ω or -ων, as λαγώ or λαγών
