for a definition of the general notion of case see Case (Definition)

Accusative case is the form that a noun or pronoun takes when it is the direct object of a verb. For example, the English pronoun takes the forms me, you, him, her, us, them when used as the object of a verb as in "John saw me." In Scottish Gaelic there is never any difference between the accusative case and the nominative case. For this reason the two cases are typically grouped together as a single case we can call the common case.
