What are «cases»?
Сases are grammatical forms of a word that indicate the connection of a particular word with other words in a sentence or phrase.
Depending on the case, the word can change its role in the sentence and have different endings.
In the sentences nouns can perform different roles (do an action or be the addressee of an action, etc.). Each role corresponds to the specific case, which in writing or speech we define with the help of a specific word ending.
In English, such roles are expressed by the word order or by prepositions, the change of the words order changes the meaning of the sentence: “Anna eats pizza” and “pizza eats Anna”. In Russian, we can change the order of words in
a sentence, since the role of the word is fixed by the case form (ending): “Анна ест пиццу” (“Anna eats pizza”) and “пиццу ест Анна” (“Anna eats pizza”). So if cases disappeared from the Russian language, we would stop understanding each other.
