Information on nominative, genitive, dative and accusative

It is not enough to be able to decline correctly. Of course, you also need to know when to use which case in a sentence. Therefore, here is some information about the four cases in German:

The fame: When is the nominative correct?

The nominative is only problematic for a few learners. It's the basic form of the word - so you don't have to decline anything. Fame you use in the nominative when the word is that subject is in the sentence. Then you ask about it with the question words who or What (Question nominative). Most of the time it is subject the first word of the sentence, but not always: it can also be in the middle of the sentence. For example, this is the case with a question:

Example sentence 1 (subject at the beginning of the sentence): The fame is often ...
Example sentence 2 (question): What's the name of "The fame" in German? (Answer): "The Glory" called ...
Example sentence 3 (subject in the middle of the sentence): For the fame it got Mrs. Muller always interested.

Of fame: The genitive explained

The genitive is usually the last case that German learners get to know. You can speak the language quite well without him. Because there are also native speakers who almost never use the genitive in spoken German. You actually need the case to say what a thing belongs to or who is the owner. In the spoken language, however, it also works great without the genitive: namely when you simply from the fame and not of fame says.
Of course, the genitive is not entirely useless. In the written language, you should use the genitive rather than the alternative dative constructions. And of course your spoken German sounds a lot better if you use the right genitive.
You ask for a word in the genitive case with the question word whose. It sounds like this, for example:

Whose is that?
This is ... of fame

The genitive is also used for some prepositions. After these you use Fame always in the genitive. These prepositions are for example: in the face of fame, instead of fame or because of fame.
When Germans speak, you won't hear these forms that often (by the way, Germans sometimes use them incorrectly with the dative). The prepositions with genitive are more important for the written language than for the spoken language.
Even the verbs that need a genitive, such as B. help yourself (= use), ... need (= need), take hold of (= get into his possession) is more likely to be found in written texts and not so often in everyday spoken language.

To fame: How does the dative work?

You use the dative - for example: the fame - to say who the recipient / addressee or the target of an action is. The question words are whom or What. You should use the dative e.g. B. use after these verbs: bring, lend, offer, explain, recommend, give, write, wish, show, send, give ...
You also use the dative case with some prepositions, such as: From the fame, with the fame, with the fame.

The fame: When do you use the accusative?

In the accusative - the fame - is the direct object, the object of doing. The appropriate question is who or what?.

Who or what am I ignoring?
I ignore the fame.

The accusative is also used after certain prepositions:

I'm interested in the fame.
I think about the fame to.

These aren't the only accusative prepositions, but a few examples are: through, against, without.
