locative case
Definition - The case that indicates place.

Notes:
1. In English it is expressed with prepositions (e.g. I live in Burnaby), whereas in more inflected languages, such as Latin, it is shown by modifying word endings.

Etymology -
The word derives from the Latin locus, place.

Oxford English Dictionary -
Its first citation in this sense is from 1841:
"The termination of the locative case."
