How do Latin nouns work?
Nouns in Latin are categorized by gender (masculine, feminine, neuter), number (singular, plural), and by case. A noun's case identifies its role in the sentence. For example, if the noun is in the Nominative case, we know that the noun has to be the Subject of the sentence. If the noun is a word like "femina" (woman), we can infer that this word is Nominative, singular, and feminine, meaning the woman is the subject, and there is only one.

What is the best way to study vocabulary?
If it is Latin vocabulary, for example, some great ways to study are: to make flashcards; to find derivatives in other languages (ex: if the term in Latin is "amor", an English derivative would be "amorous"); or to use mnemonic devices to help remember them.

What was Hermes the Greek god of?
Hermes is a complex god. He starts out his life by leaving his cradle and inventing the lyre, which would become the primary instrument of his godly brother, Apollo. He then ventures into farmland to steal Apollo's cattle, sealing his identity further as a god of thieves and of farming. He is also the god of travelers and merchants, and is the god who leads the dead down into the Underworld.
