    When you use a word in Genitive Case (genitive plural ending). For ex: В этой комнате нет столОВ / V etoj komnate net stolOV (There aren't tabels in this room).
    This suffix often used in the creation of professional terminology or words (mostly adjectives): классОВый / klassOVyj, мальчикОВый / malchikOVyj, подросткОВый / podrostkOVyj, страхОВой / strakhOVoj.
    Possessive. For ex: ИванОВ / IvanOV (Ivan's).
