In Greek and Latin the noun declensions use a case order of Nominative -- Genitive -- Dative -- Accusative -- Ablative (for Latin only) -- Vocative. I'm wondering if it is ok to make the German paradigms conform to the Latin and Greek in terms of the order of the cases? Is there a reason that the cases in the German declension are ordered differently or is it arbitrary?
