I wouldn't really call the non-genitive case in English the nominative.
I think "oblique" is the term to describe an "everything that doesn't
have it's own case" case, such as the non-genitive in English.

I'm not sure about this, though. Anyone reading this, feel free to
correct me if I'm mistaken on any counts.
