The accusative case of a noun marks the direct object of a verb or the object of a preposition. English, which lacks declension in its nouns, has an accusative case in a few pronouns (e.g. "whom" is the accusative case of "who", and "him" is the accusative case of "he").

Compare nominative case, dative case, ergative case, genitive case, vocative case, ablative case.
