NounEdit

oblique case ‎(plural oblique cases)

  1. (grammar) Any noun case except the nominative case (and sometimes the vocative case), where the noun is the object of a verb or the object of a preposition.
    • 1817, Peter Edmund Laurent, An introduction to the study of German grammar; with practical exercises., London, p.13:
      19. Cases of Nouns are six: Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative, Vocative, and Ablative. As in the Latin and Greek languages, these cases are derived from the Nominative by certain rules of inflection; the Nominative being the root of all the other cases, is termed the direct case, the others are called oblique cases.
