Need Noun Cases Explanation
Can someone explain to me the difference between the noun cases? ie: Nominative, Accusative, Dative, and Genitive.
Nominative is the thing doing the verb, its the subject of the sentence.
Accusative is having the verb done to it, its the direct object of the sentence.
Dative is the indirect object of the sentence, I remember its like "to the" like in "the woman gives the book to the man"
Genitive indicates possession and it means "of the"
I hope this helps :D
