Mensagem:  Hi PPAULO,

Actually, it was from a real question from a renowned standardized test center (entrance exam for public state university in Brazil).

They used to call it "genitive case", but they wrote "genitive suffix" in one of the multiple choice alternatives. "The man's future...."

I just wondered if such term is well applied or not, because it did sound kinda odd to my ears... that´s all. 

It is indeed unimportant, but my question is simply out of curiosity.

Thank you.
