In Latin, I know that there are five major cases: Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative, and Ablative. I was curious to know how many German cases there are?
Thanks for the help.
There are four cases in German : Nominative Accusative, Dative, and Genitive.
...er, what about the 'vocative' case? Shouldn't the total be six for Latin?
Yikes, Wikipedia agrees: "Nouns (including proper nouns and pronouns) have six cases (casus): nominative, vocative, accusative, genitive, dative and ablative (a few nouns have a seventh case, called the locative)..."
I still want to learn Latin.
Oh, yes. I'm sorry, I just remembered about this case. Thanks for reminding me, JohnRayson!
It's sort of nice to know, struggling with German cases, that there's one less case than in Latin.
I have just got onto learning cases and found a great resource here:
