The Nominative case of a noun is its base
form, so the gender of a noun is
determined in this case. The Nominative
case endings have been given when

The use of the Nominative case
noun in the Nominative case is used in
the sentence as the subject: Марія (Nom.) моя подруга. (Maria is my friend.)

Nominative сестра
This is the case of the subject in a
sentence and the form in which nouns
are listed in the dictionary.
in Ukrainian
Genitive У мене нема сестри.
have no sister.
Я приїхав без сестри.
without (my) sister
I came
► Comments
You should learn the "У мене нема" (I don't have...)

(not a word by word translation by far). The genitive case
is often used with negative verbs.

in Ukrainian
Я телефоную сестрі.
calling (my) sister.
► Accusative
in Ukrainian
Я зустріну сестру на вокзалі.
Я шукаю сестру.
Я дивлюся на сестру.
I'll meet (my) sister at the train station.
I'm looking for (my) sister.
I'm looking at (my) sister.
This case is used with (3rd example here) and
without (1st & 2nd examples) prepositions.
► Instrumental
in Ukrainian
Я захоплююся сестрою.
Я приїду із сестрою.
I admire (my) sister.
I will come with (my) sister.
This case often indicates the means of doing
something, e.g., Я їду поїздом - I'm going by
train - the masculine noun "train" is in the
instrumental case. It is also used with some
prepositions (example 2).
► Prepositional
in Ukrainian
На сестрі красива
My sister is wearing a beautiful dress. (literally:
There's a beautiful dress on (my) sister.)

"locative," this case often describes a place
in its broadest sence: location, destination,

земле (Voc)! (Ukraine, my land!)
Ukrainian, there are 4 declension
types. The first declension is used for
most feminine nouns. The second
declension is used for most masculine
and neuter nouns. The third
declension is used for feminine nouns
ending in ь or a post-alveolar sibilant.
The fourth declension is used for
neuter nouns ending in я/а
(Common Slavic *ę).
► Most
of the types consist of 3 different
subgroups: hard, mixed, and soft. The soft
subgroup consists of nouns whose roots end in a
soft letter (followed by iotified vowel or soft
vowel). The mixed subgroup consists of the
nouns whose roots end in a post-alveolar sibilant
or occasionally r. The hard group consists of all
other nouns.
► If
the hard group endings are taken as the basis,
then the following rules can be used to derived
the corresponding mixed and soft endings
► Mixed
 All o following a post-alveolar sibilant change
to e.
 All y following a post-alveolar sibilant change
to i.
► Soft
subgroup: Whenever a soft sign or
the semi-vowel encounters the vowel of
the ending, the following changes occur
(These are mainly orthographic changes):
First declension
declension consists of nouns
which end in а or я. It consists
primarily of feminine nouns, but a
few nouns with these ending
referring to professions can be
either masculine or feminine.
Second declension
► The
second declension consists of masculine and
neuter nouns.
► Masculine Nouns: This group consists primarily
of nouns, which end in a consonant, a soft sign, ь,
or й. It should be noted that in the masculine
declension, nouns, which end in р can belong to
any of the three declension subgroups: hard,
mixed, and soft
Nouns In this category
belong neuter nouns ending in о, е,
and those substantives ending in я,
preceded by either a double
consonant, apostrophe, or two
consonants, which primarily are
derived from verbs.
Third declension
declension consists
solely of feminine nouns that
end in a consonant. This
declension has only 2
subgroups: a mixed and soft
Fourth declension
declension consists of solely
neuter nouns that are derived from
Common Slavic *ę. There are two
subgroups: those with an н insert, and
those with a т insert.
