With nouns, the translation of the inflected meaning is going to be limited to the genitive,
dative, and vocative by using the "helping word." E.g.
nom s LOGOS = word
gen s LOGOU = of a word
dat s LOGWi = to a word
acc s LOGON = word
nom pl LOGOI = words
gen pl LOGWN = of words
dat pl LOGOIS = to words
acc pl LOGOUS = words
voc s ANQRWPE (vocative) = O Man!
voc pl ANQRWPOI (vocative) = O Men!
I think this is what Mounce is asking for. As you can see, for the nominative and accusative
the translation of the inflected form is the same as the lexical meaning because we don't in
English have "helping words" for these cases.
