The primary classification of nouns is by the final consonant of the stem:

  1. Stem ending in a hard consonant.
  2. Stem ending in a soft consonant.
  3. Stem ending in a velar consonant (г, к or х).
  4. Stem ending in a hushing consonant (ж, ш, ч or щ).
  5. Stem ending in ц.
  6. Stem ending in a vowel, except и.
  7. Stem ending in и.
  8. The traditional "third declension", consisting of:
    • Masculines and feminines with nominative in , genitive in (the so-called "i-stems").
    • Neuters with nominative in , genitive in -ени (the so-called "n-stems").

Further classification is by accentuation type:

  • a : Accent always on the stem.
  • b : Accent always on the ending, or on the final syllable of the stem when there is no ending.
  • c : Accent on the stem in the singular, on the ending in the plural.
  • d : Accent on the ending in the singular, on the stem in the plural.
  • e : Accent on the stem in the singular and nominative plural, on the ending in all other plural cases.
  • f : Accent on the stem in the nominative plural, on the ending in the singular and in all other plural cases.
