Definition:

NominativeCase identifies clause subjects in nominative-accusative languages. It is usually the unmarked case. Nouns used in isolation often have this case [Crystal 1980, 242; Pei and Gaynor 1954, 147; Hartmann and Stork 1972, 224].



Language Code: tur In Turkish, the nominative is zero-marked. Also, in this language nonspecific objects do not take the accusative case.
