I don't understand the need for the -az ending. 10:55, 1 August 2012 (UTC)—This unsigned comment was added by Tibetologist (talkcontribs).

The -az is the ending for the nominative singular case of certain Proto-Germanic nouns. It descended from Proto-Indo-European -os, and is also found in Greek (as -os) and in Latin (as -us). There isn't technically a 'need' for the ending, it's just the way it was. —CodeCat 11:14, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
