ACCUSATIVE

in regards to language, the instance of a noun, pronoun, or sentence that develops the direct object of a clause or phrase. In the English language, not like more highly enunciated languages, only specific personal or possessive pronouns alter their structure when they show up in such a position

ACCUSATIVE: "Accusative nouns and pronouns differ from one language to the next due to such wide variations in grammar- within the context of English language, different country's use of it present different inflection upon words and how they are used."
