A complete Latin noun declension consists of seven grammatical cases:
Nominative
one of the grammatical cases of a noun or other part of speech, which generally marks the subject of a verb or the predicate noun or predicate adjective, as opposed to its object or other verb arguments.
Accusative
The ___________ case of a noun is the grammatical case used to mark the direct object of a transitive verb. It is a noun that is having something done to it, usually joined (such as in Latin) with the nominative case, making it an indirect object.
Dative
a grammatical case generally used to indicate the noun to whom something is given.
Genitive
the grammatical case that marks a noun as modifying another noun. It often marks a noun as being the possessor of another noun
