When they wrote decline, did they mean define? If not, I’m afraid decline has a meaning I don’t understand and I feel even more lame

@Joann I think it’s “decline I,” as in leave it out and list the others–me, my, etc. I think.

Decline “I” means list all of the forms of “I” for different cases (nominative, accusative etc.) – I, me, and so forth.
