The category of nouns serving as the direct object of a verb; SYN. accusative case, objective case.
The case of a noun or pronoun that is the object of a verb or is governed by a preposition. For example: “He stroked the dog.” “I worked in the shed.” Here, dog and shed are both in the accusative case. Dog is the object of the verb “stroked”; shed is governed by (its form controlled) by the preposition in.
In the grammar of some inflected languages, such as Latin, Greek, and Russian, the accusative case is the form of a noun, pronoun, or adjective used when it is the direct object of a verb. The accusative is also used for the object of certain prepositions.
