Genitiv englanniksi   genitive sv, possessive case de


*: Substantives in the English tongue, have only two terminations for case: the nominative, which merely expresses the name of the thing, and the possessive, or genitive case, made by the addition of s, with an apostrophe before it, which denotes property: all other realtions between substantives, as this also very often, are expressed by different prepositions: for example---a freemans rights; or the rights of a freeman.

*: When one thing is expressed as belonging to another, then one of the substantives is said to govern the other in the genitive, or possessive case; thus, Miltons poems; the kings gift; Williams book. Here the former substantive, ending in s, marked with an apostrophe, is the word governed; as Miltons: the latter is the word that governs; as, poems: the former is in the genitive case, which is marked thus, s, which mark is called the possessive s.
