Entertainment / Literature / Oblique Form: The various forms or cases of any word in a declined language except the nominative form or nominative case. The term 'oblique' to describe this comes from medieval grammar exercises, where a young monk would list all the declensions of a Latin word at an oblique angle except for the nominative form. Thus, these forms became known as 'oblique forms.'
