In the article we can see a general vision of the different theories and presentations of the Basque declension that have taken place from the seventeenth century till the nineteenth, emphasizing specially on Pablo Astarloa's contribution.
   Although it is true -the same as happens with other european languages- that there has been up to a later period a mimetic tendency in the Basque grammar towards the bases of the Latin grammar, this tendency was radically changed thanks to Pablo Astarloa's ethnocentric description. Here we note that Astarloa provides a clear reference for a change in the history of the theories about the Basque declension.
   Frequently, when we talk about Astarloa, we only give him atribution to certain strange and vague theories. It is this attitude towards his extravagants ideas -as seen by the actual linguistical knowledge- that have made this writer from Durango receive an injust treatment, even made him fall into oblivion. This work is intended to justify Astarloa, pointing out his originality and importance, as well as his faults and inadequacies in his theory about declension; at the same time, the origin and evolution of some of the main problems surrounding the Basque declension are sketched and recurrently appear within the nineteenth century.
   Taking Astarloa's theory as a centre point, the article has been divided into three parts: I. Grammars previous to Astarloa. II. A) Discursos filosóficos. B) Traggia and Apología. C) Astarloa and the linguistical ideas of the time. D) Good points and inadequacies of Astarloa's theory. III. Astarloa's influence.
