Frage:
Can we say "in case that " in English?  
von Windfall (GB), Last modified: 2020-04-17, 12:30  like dislike  Spam?  
I didn't think we could say "in case that" in English (e.g. "in case that it rains", NOT "in case that dog bites you again"), but the dict has several "in case that" entries. Can anyone confirm whether "in case that" correct or not in British and American English?
dict.cc: in case that

I don't think it's correct these days (in BE).  #918315

sunfun's OED link is for in case and shows in case that as obsolete.

When I search the OED for in case that, I get No dictionary entries found for ‘in case that’.

Sounds like unless any Americans chime in to say it's acceptable in US English, we should tag one of the entries "[obs]" and change the rest to "in case" or just delete them where they're duplicates
Antwort: 
I can only see one entry for in case that  #918323

dict.cc: "in case that"

The others are for in that case. Unless I'm missing something.

Oops, just me not checking the rest carefully after I found the first one. I guess we tag it [obs.] then. I'm going to wait a day and see if an American answers about modern American usage first, just in case
Antwort: 
Sounds good :-)  #918334
