  1. Prepositional case

    Prepositional case is a grammatical case that marks the object of a preposition. This term can be used in languages where nouns have a declensional form that appears exclusively in combination with certain prepositions. For example, in Russian and Polish, the case that appears with uses of the prepositions na, v, pri, o is traditionally referred to as the prepositional case. Because the objects of these prepositions often denote locations, this case is also sometimes called the locative case: Czech and Slovak lokál, miejscownik in Polish. This is in concord with its etymology: the Slavic prepositional case hails from the Proto-Indo-European locative case. Small rudimentary traces of locative case are also present in Russian - the prepositional case of certain nouns, often denoting locations, with "in/on" prepositions differs from the same case form of the same nouns with another prepositions, as in "в лесу"="in the forest", but "о лесе
