Labial and Velar Declension (third declension)

The labial and velar declension nouns have stems that end in either a labial plosive (β, π, φ) or a velar plosive (γ, κ, χ). When followed by σ/ς, none of these consonants maintain their distinction of voice or aspiration, and join with σ/ς to become ψ or ξ respectively.
