In linguistics, the ornative case is a noun case that means "endowed with" or "supplied with."

This case is found in the Dumi language, which marks it by the suffix -mi.[1]

In Hungarian, it is marked with the suffix -s. For example: "ajtó" ("door"), as in "zöld ajtós ház" ("a house with green door"); "hálószoba" ("bedroom"), as in "2 hálószobás lakás" ("apartment with 2 bedrooms").
