  12.11.2 Declination of jeder as noun


The declination of jeder as a noun (in substantival use) is identical with the one in adjectival use - in opposite to kein, which has a slightly different declination. Often they are used instead of jeder in adejctival use.

    masculine feminine neutral
Nominative jeder jede jedes
  Genitive jedes jeder jedes
  Dative jedem jeder jedem
  Akkusativ jeden jede jedes
         

Alle is used very often as a synonym for jeder. Alle can only be used in plural form:

    masculine feminine neutral
Nominative alle alle alle
  Genitive aller aller aller
  Dative allen allen allen
  Akkusativ alle alle alle
         

Again jeder and alle can be used similarly. Jeder is used only in singular, alle only in plural. The Genitive is almost never used neither with jeder nor with alle. Jeder in substantival meaning means everyone or everybody.
