The Declension of Nouns
The Russian noun changes its ending according to its function in the sentence and it relation to other words. The form which the Russian noun takes in the sentence is called the case. A change in the form of the noun is called inflexion or declension. (Compare with the English language in which only one case is inflected – the Possessive: My brother’s book).
There are six cases in Russian. Each case has its own name and each answers a definite question, namely:
О ком? О чём?
of whom? of what?
to whom? to what?
by whom with what?
about whom? about what?
