[Smt-talk] Gradus ab Parnasu

Wether the ablative of Parnasus would be "Parnaso" or "Parnasu" remains 
open to discussion -- or, more precisely, whether it be 2nd or 4th 
declension. But I think you are right, it is 2d declension, therefore 

What is sure, in any case, is that the exercise of Stephen's student 
does show some level of declension; and so does Stephen's subject line. 
This all must be Schenker's fault.
