One of my books uses the phrase:


(A programmer from Chicago)
but another book uses:

So why do they use the genitive for but not for ?
is indeclinable
nom.
gen.
dat.
acc.
inst.
loc.

Foreign proper names are declinable only if they end with a consonant or with -,
or -, or -.
nom.

gen.

dat.

acc.

inst.

loc.
