5.1.3 Accusative: the case of the object

The accusative case is the form of the noun used for the object of the sentence.

  • servus feminam amat. The slave loves the woman.
  • puer lupum capit. The boy captures the wolf.

The accusative is also used after certain prepositions in Latin (such as ad, ‘towards’).

  • puer ad feminam currit. The boy runs towards the woman.
