    8.2 Case (cont'd...)

    Genitive case is the indicated by a change of form which is in grammar, called inflection. The different forms of pronouns in different cases (see their inflexion) are listed in Table 8.2.

    Table 8.2 Example of different cases

    Nominative Objective Possessive
    I me my, mine
    we us our, ours
    you you your, yours
    thou thee thy, thine
    he him his
    she her her, hers
    it it its
    they them their, theirs

    The genitive forms mine, ours, your, thine, hers and theirs are generally used predictively. For example: This pen is mine not his/ hers/yours/ theirs/ thine. Oh, you, when shall we see your life-jacket. Here ‘you’ is in vocative case.
