    At that time, I had no idea that my investigations into where formal hit subjects were required in Old English would develop into a book on the relationship between the loss of case-marking morphology and the 'reanalysis' of grammatical relations in English. (words that would be in the genitive case in Old English are marked in green) The Genitive is the possession case, used to indicate that one thing is owned by, controlled by, or connected to another.

Case-marking systems are categorized by how the subject of a verb without an object (an intransitive verb) is marked, how the subject of a verb with an object (a transitive verb) is marked, and how the object of a transitive verb is marked.

Functions of Case Markers. The functions of the case markers are discussed below. The section is further complemented by the argument realization page, which discusses which predicates require phrases marked by which case markers.

The Absolutive. The absolutive (a) marks NPs that correspond to both English's subjects and objects. Case is a special grammatical category of a noun, pronoun, adjective, participle or numeral whose value reflects the grammatical function performed by that word in a phrase, clause or sentence.

In some languages, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, determiners, participles, prepositions, numerals, articles and their modifiers take different inflected forms, depending on their case.
