I am studying a Greek grammar and the third declension.
I am curious about the nuances of the third declension noun πατηρ.
The genitive singular form of this word is πατρος.
If you drop the genitive case ending, you are supposed to arrive at the stem...but this isn't the case here.
Can someone please explain to me what happened to the "e"? Why does it behave this way?
