A Declined Noun
When we matched a pronoun and verb, that was called conjugating. When we match a noun with its case, that’s called declining. Here’s the word declined in all its forms:
Here’s a concrete example of how you use the cases in a sentence:
The man (nominative) is a tailor.
This is the book of the man (genitive). or This is the man’s book.
I see the men (accusative plural).
Just as formation of the plural depended upon the gender of a noun and its ending letters, so does the formation of the cases depend upon gender and ending letters.
