Hello my Friends!
Today I would like to tell you about the Accusative case.
Steven is a person who makes an action. He is a subject. His car doesn’t do anything. It does not make any action but it accepts the Steven’s action. So we can call it a direct object. So if we have objects we should put them into the Accusative case. Which means we should replace some endings. Look at the table of endings:
As you can see we change only feminine nouns (we replace the ending -а with -у and the -я with -ю). This is why we have changed “машина“ to “машину“.
And we also change masculine animated nouns. Saying animated I mean a person or an animal. For example: Я знаю президента – I know the president. (“President” is a masculine animated noun, that’s why we added the ending -a).
And remember if you love, hate, see, buy, lose, find, watch, know, read, learn things – they are your objects and should be in the accusative case.
I hope it was understandable!
