  Declension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In linguistics, declension is a paradigm of inflected nouns.
Declension is seen, for example, in many Indo-European languages like Latin, Russian, German and Sanskrit; in Dravidian languages like Tamil; in most Uralic languages, such as Finnish and Hungarian; in Swahili and many others.
Declensions are distinguished by the presence of certain vowels or consonants.

 Latin declension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In addition, the accusative is the same as the nominative in the plural of the third, fourth and fifth declensions (but note the alternative –īs accusative plural ending for i-stem nominals, different from nominative –ēs).
The first (called the "first and second declension") combines the a and o declensions of nouns, with the a endings added when the adjective is feminine, and the o forms for masculines.
The other class for adjectives (called the "third declension") is similar to the third class for nouns, with the important difference that nearly all these adjectives form the ablative singular in -ī, not in -e.

 What's the Plural of 'Virus'?
That seems to be using virus as a genitive, which contradicts the assertion that it's 2nd declension, which would have lead to viri, and supports the 4th declension position.
The Latin noun virus does not belong to the second declension group but, like the noun fructus, meaning fruit or piece of fruit, belongs to a group of Latin words that is declined according to the fourth declension.
According to the fourth declension the plural genitive of virus in Latin is viruum and therefore an Index of Viruses is in Latin an Index Viruum.

Though I've never heard their earlier work, World Declension comes across as a solid first generation death metal meets classic American death metal riffery, all accented by killer drumming from new member Ronnie Bergerstahl.
On their latest release, the band combines the more melodic side of earlier Entombed with the heavier and vibrant aspects of At The Gates, but there are also obvious Morbid Angel and Death leanings, considering the darker and more atmospheric passages in some songs.
And it is these songs that lend World Declension an extra edge, since the band obviously has an ear for atmosphere and more toned down yet heavier compositions.

 Lynch, "False Refinement and Declension"
Now rise and fall together suggest a peak, and in this paper I'd like to discuss this linguistic trajectory by placing Johnson's comments on the history of the language in the context of other such statements from the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries.
To judge by the front matter of the Dictionary alone, Johnson was attuned to this discourse of linguistic corruption.
His "studious" search for "examples and authorities from the writers before the restoration" is an expression of the eighteenth-century desire to authorize the language by reference to a corpus of canonical British texts.

When the new genitive was assigned an ergative (later nominative) function, this produced a situation where the nominative and genitive forms were identical: both *ék
