Usage notesEdit

The preposition laut governs either the dative or genitive case. Usage with dative has been more common since 1900:

  • laut einem Bericht (also: eines Berichts)according to a report.

The dative case is always used for plural nouns not preceded by an article, determiner, or adjective:

  • laut Berichten (not: Berichte)according to reports.

An isolated noun of the strong declension remains uninflected in the singular:

  • laut Bericht (not: Berichts)according to the report.
