Learn to recognise and use feminine nouns in nominative and accusative case.
The accusative case is used when an object or a person (a noun) is directly receiving the action or is the object of an action.
For example "Jaz vidim avto" (I see a car) - the object "car" is receiving the action of "seeing".
We can help determine the case by using the following questions:
|Nominative||Who or what (is here)?||Mama je tu. (Mother is here)|
|Genitive||Who or what (is not here)?||Mame ni tu. (Mother is not here)|
|Dative||To whom or to what (do we give)?||Mami dam darilo. (I give gift to mother.)|
|Accusative||Whom or what (do we see)?||Jaz vidim mamo. (I see mother)|
|Locative||Next to whom or what (is)?||Pri mami je otrok. (The child is with the mother.)|
|Instrumental||With whom or with what (is)?||Z mamo je oče.|
Further examples of when accusative is used:
|Whom or what do I see?||Vidim pomarančo.||I see an orange.|
|What do I eat?||Jem večerjo.||I'm eating dinner.|
|What do I read?||Berem knjigo.||I'm reading a book.|
|What do I have?||Imam sestro.||I have a sister.|
Most feminine nouns which end with -a in nominative are declensed by using 1st feminine noun declension paradigm.
