  Yes, I know it's entitled "... New Testament Greek," but when one defines a term that 
  applies to languages in general, I would think one's definition shouldn't make it sound like it 
  only applies to Greek. Since my copy is at home, I can't look at it right now, but I suspect 
  that in his definition of "nominative" he does not say: "The case _in the Greek language_ 
  that denotes the subject of a clause or sentence." But then again, he might!

I thought you said you had this book at home; remember that it's 
entitled "Pocket
Dictionary for the Study of New Testament GREEK" -- it's not trying 
to give a
general introduction to Linguistics (but it IS very helpful in 
explaining several
terms that Linguists use in describing languages generally, as well 
as in
describing Greek.
