Etymology

Pronunciation

Adjective

nominative (not comparable)

  1. Giving a name; naming; designating.
    nominative fair use
    • 2007, William D. Popkin, Evolution of the Judicial Opinion: Institutional and Individual Styles, NYU Press (->ISBN), page 104:
      A telling marker of the change in the reporter's status was the elimination of the nominative reports (that is, the citation of the reports by the reporter's name). The first state to use "state reports" rather than the nominative designation was Connecticut (1814). Many other states made this change in the middle of the 19th Century or began their official reports with state reports.
  2. (grammar) Being in that case or form of a noun which stands as the subject of a finite verb.
  3. Making a selection or nomination; choosing.
    • 2014, Eva Diaz, The Experimenters: Chance and Design at Black Mountain College:
      To Duchamp, an artist's nominative act--the declaration itself regardless of the object--was itself the art. He could choose anything indifferent to, or even in spite of, its aesthetic merits.
