* There will be a space for the vocative case when you fill in the practice charts. The vocative case is used to address someone by name:

Fernanda, please pass the note to me.

In English, the comma separates the person addressed from the rest of the sentence. In Latin, we would use the vocative case for Fernanda. Generally, it is indistinguishable from the nominative case. However, in 2nd Declension nouns the -us ending changes to an -e (as in ‘Et tu, Brute‘) and the –ius ending changes to an -i.
