Is the TTS correct to pronounce ابنك with a final fatHa? That would be accusative case, right? Shouldn’t this be nominative? Or does the possessive ending change the required case?

EDIT: Reading up on wikipedia it appears that the fatHa is part of the possessive ending in formal pronunciation? Does that mean that nouns with these endings can’t bear case even in formal Arabic?
