Sanskrit.

(I've always thought of genders being within declensions, not the other way around. And why ">2015", if I may ask?)

Sans script.

(Declensions are a consequence of genders, if it's gender that you're declining for. :P Specifically, they're the markings on nouns that genders require. If the gender actually only ever shows up on nouns/pronouns, it's referred to as a "noun class"; if it's a gender then it should require agreement among several parts of speech, including nouns, verbs, and adjectives if present. Even more generally, to the point, whenever you modify a noun, it's called "declining" it - this includes gender, case, and number. When you do the equivalent thing to verbs, that would be called "conjugating".

">2015" because that's a common template within the meme. :P)

Sans Serif.

(I know most of the universal grammar stuff, though I haven't heard of "noun classes" before. My confusion arises from my Latin background; second declension contains both masculine and neuter gendered endings, which led me to mentally visualize gender as a smaller category within the larger umbrella of a declension. Hence, "multiple declensions within the same gender sounded backwards.

However, if a language has x declensions and y genders, where y > x and every declension has exactly one gender, I imagine that I would be under the opposite impression.

In fact, my Sherlock-style conclusion would be that you learned how to decline in such a language, except that, knowing your linguistic background, you probably learned this in theory, not practice, in your "Constructed Languages" class. amirite?

As for the format of your post, your reference to a "meme" allowed me to make some progress. I was able to determine that you are imitating the style of 4-chan's green text code, but more precise details such as the "template" continue to elude me. scratch )

Modern type.

(Yeah, that's why I make snide reference to Indo-European. :P Lots of things like knowing how to decline in Russian and Latin are quite messed-up, with crisscrossing ways in which masculine, feminine, and neuter will overlap with all the various cases and number/pluralization. In general, though, thinking that way will get confusing when you wade into [slightly?] more logical systems like the various Bantu languages, e.g. Swahili. You're best off thinking of gender, case, and number as 3 different umbrellas you're obliged to hold all at once, and the arrangement you come up with to support all 3 is the resulting declension.

You're correct that I first learned the theory, in L210 Constructed Languages. :P Now that you're bringing up issues with what I remember, I'm going to have to go back and look at my textbook again to try and understand Latin/Russian declension. Fusional languages that use masculine/feminine/neuter confuse me no end. Even having 6 genders in Ielkist' is starting to sound like less of a pain, given that I'm building it and thus understanding it from the ground up...

For my post format... check this and this.)

Comic Sans in inappropriate places.

(One of those links was blue, the other white; now both are blue. Maybe I just don't get the punchline, but it seems to me that this particular meme isn't really a joke... not that there's anything wrong with that, I just haven't ever encountered it before.

That being said, it is sort of funny that I proved your point with my confusion to your initial greentext. :P

The best way to think about declensions in Latin seems to be to realize that they have no grammatical reason to exist. A noun's declension can only tell you how to decline it, not what gender it is, or anything else about the object or creature to which the noun refers.

However, Latin adjectives come in two declensions: 1st/2nd [which literally use the same root with endings from both 1st and 2nd declensions] and 3rd. For 1st/2nd, genders are assigned to the declensions in order to decline an adjective to agree with the noun it modifies, regardless of what declension the noun being modified happens to be. The genders assigned to the 1st and 2nd - feminine gets 1st and 2nd is divided into masculine and neuter, which are nearly identical to one another but not quite - are based on the genders which those declensions typically represent, but gender is so far from a 1:1 ratio with the declensions that you either have to memorize it for every noun in your vocabulary, or avoid 1st/2nd declension adjectives altogether. 3rd declension adjectives use the same endings no matter what gender they have anyway, so gender doesn't matter. And of course, you can totally use 3rd declension adjectives to modify 1st or 2nd declension nouns or vice versa.

This would suggest that Latin once had something like four genders: feminine, neuter, masculine, and "ungendered." [Ungendered may be the result of loan words.] Each of the four should have gotten its own declension, but masculine was so similar to neuter that the two were combined into the 2nd declension, with almost all of the cases being identical. [It's possible that neuter evolved out of masculine in Latin, since the primary difference is that the neuter nominative is -um instead of the masculine -us; meanwhile, the accusative for both genders is also -um. So if a word was most frequently used in the accusative (neuter nouns, being semantic objects, are therefore often grammatical objects) it lost its masculine nominative ending and used its accusative ending, even as a subject.] The two adjective declensions that evolved are simply the gendered adjectives [1st/2nd] and the ungendered [3rd].

We also have four conjugations of verbs, but as far as I know there is no correlation to gender, or any other grammatical construct. The primary difference is a single vowel usually placed before the suffix [which indicates tense and number] but, in certain tenses of certain conjugations, is omitted.)

Sans comic value.

(This all goes to show what I've been saying recently, which is that Latin is grammatically stupid and anyone who holds it [or {*gag*} Esperanto] up as a "perfect language" is also foolish. :P

On conjugation, though, verbs do also take tense - I forgot about that for a minute. But don't you think an agglutinative language where you can distinguish all the morphemes is easier to work with than a plodding fusional behemoth like Latin?)
