(1) As students of the language may recall, German has four cases - nominative, genitive , dative, and accusative - which see words change in order to explain their relationship to each other.(2) Such instances are common in Arabic and one finds many examples in which an accusative of state occurs from a governed noun in the genitive .(3) The genitive also expresses possession: ├ö├ç├┐whose house is this?├ö├ç├û(4) Write in columns the nominative singular, genitive plural, gender, and meaning of: - operibus, principe, imperatori, genere, apro, nivem, vires, frondi, muri.(5) Why do some verbs take the genitive , not the accusative?(6) Meanwhile the Malays and Chinese had managed to build impressive civilisations without so much as a past tense, let alone a subjunctive, or genitive plural.(7) The only noun inflexion preserved in Modern English is the possessive ending ├ö├ç├┐s├ö├ç├û which is a survival of the common Germanic masculine singular genitive case ending.(8) Surnames were frequently created out of the Latin genitive of some ancestor's given name.(9) The nominal system distinguishes five cases: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, and ablative; the genitive and dative endings are always the same.(10) Since every regular noun has a genitive form, every trademark that has the form of a singular noun has a genitive form too.(11) ├ö├ç├┐Each├ö├ç├û and ├ö├ç├┐some├ö├ç├û are always the first noun in the genitival phrase.(12) As a Semitic construct, the genitival expression ├ö├ç├┐son of X├ö├ç├û in the Bible can grammatically denote the member of the group or class.(13) In Finwe MÔö£┬íriello ├ö├ç├┐of Finwe and MÔö£┬íriel├ö├ç├û only the last name is declined, although both genitivally modify Namna ├ö├ç├┐Statute├ö├ç├û.(14) The genitival relationship between two nouns is marked by an initial raised H tone on the second noun.(15) In phrases, adjectives and genitives generally precede nouns: micel fld ├ö├ç├┐a great flood;├ö├ç├û Westseaxna cyning ├ö├ç├┐king of the West Saxons.├ö├ç├û(16) At least nobody disputes that the ├ö├ç├┐s├ö├ç├û is genitival in origin, so that the historical pronunciation would be Mar ls-ham.
