comment Meaning of nominative, genitive, dative and accusative
English and German do not have locative and instrumental, but we use prepositions for that purpose. See Wikipedia for some examples. Some languages have even more cases. Czech, for instance, has 7 cases – AFAIK.

comment “ich” in different cases
@Cerberus I wouldn't say that it 'modifies' the subject. If you use "sein", it simply means equality "Ich = der Schönste". I also don't think it has to be the same gender: "Du bist das Beste, was mir je passiert ist", but also "Du bist der/die Beste". Furthermore, when you speak to a child, you can apply both "das" for "das Kind" or "der" or "die" for its actual gender: "Du bist der dümmste Junge/das dümmste Mädchen/das dümmste Kind" - "Du bist der/die dümmste von allen". In your last sentence you should, technically speaking, use "das"; but "die" is fine. – Anyway. "Ich" has no article.
