When do you use which case?

Now you know the nominative, genitive, dative and accusative of Correct. But when do you actually need which of these cases? Here you will find a short grammar explanation - of course not with all the details! - about the German cases.

Correcting: When is the nominative correct?

The nominative is only problematic for a few learners. It's the basic form of the word - so you don't have to decline anything. Correct you use in the nominative when the word is that subject is in the sentence. Then you ask about it with the question words who or What (Question nominative). Most of the time it is subject the first word of the sentence, but not always: it can also be in the middle of the sentence. For example, this is the case with a question:

Example sentence 1 (subject at the beginning of the sentence): Correcting is often ...
Example sentence 2 (question): What's the name of "Correcting" in German? (Answer): "Correcting" called ...
Example sentence 3 (subject in the middle of the sentence): For correcting it has Mrs. Muller always interested.

Of correcting: Why the genitive isn't so important.

A well-known book about the German language is called “The dative is the genitive, sein Tod”. The sentence is grammatically incorrect, but shows a tendency in the German language, especially in spoken everyday language: Here, Germans often no longer use the genitive at all. Instead one hears - sometimes wrong, sometimes not quite so wrong - constructions with the dative. For example you can from correcting and not of correcting say if you have problems with the genitive form. Only in the written language should you really use the genitive.
One asks about the genitive with whose. For example like this:

Whose is that?
This is ... of correcting

In addition, there are some prepositions in German after which one Correct used in the genitive, for example in the face of correcting, instead of correcting or because of correcting. These prepositions are used more in written German than in spoken German.
Some verbs need an object in a special case. Verbs that are followed by an object in the genitive are rare in German. They are used almost exclusively in written texts and are rarely heard in everyday conversations. That is why Germans often make mistakes with these genitive objects. Examples of verbs with a genitive object are: help yourself (= use), ... remember (= think of), to suspect someone (= suspect that someone did something bad).

Correcting: How does the dative work?

You use the dative - for example: correcting - to say who the recipient / addressee or the target of an action is. The question words are whom or What. After these words, the dative is used as an indirect object in German: write, bring, offer, explain, recommend, give, lend, wish, send, give, show ...
You also use the dative case with some prepositions, such as: from correcting, with correcting, with correcting.

Correcting: Explanations on the accusative

The accusative - correcting - is the form for the direct object, i.e. the object of doing. One asks for objects in the accusative with the question words whom or What.

Who or what am I ignoring?
I ignore correcting.

You also use the accusative after certain prepositions. Here's an example:

I'm interested in correcting.
I think about correcting to.

A few other prepositions with accusative are for example: through, against, without.
