GENITIVE CASE

341. The Genitive is regularly used to express the relation of one noun to another. Hence it is sometimes called the adjective case, to distinguish it from the Dative and the Ablative, which may be called adverbial cases.

The uses of the Genitive may be classified as follows:—

I. Genitive with Nouns: 1. Of Possession (§ 343).
2. Of Material (§ 344).
3. Of Quality (§ 345).
4. Of the Whole, after words designating a Part (Partitive, § 346).
5. With Nouns of Action and Feeling (§ 348).
II. Genitive with Adjectives: 1. After Relative Adjectives (or Verbals) (§ 349).
2. Of Specification (later use) (§ 349. d).
III. Genitive with Verbs: 1. Of Memory, Feeling, etc. (§§ 350, 351, 354).
2. Of Accusing, etc. (Charge or Penalty) (§ 352).
