"Вона любить воду."

Translation:She likes water.

Okay, this was where I started having a really hard time in Russian. What is accusative, how does it work, and when do I use it? This has always been so confusing to me.


Consult Tips&Notes.

In short - Acc. denotes direct object of action in a sentence (I read a book, We saw a dog, She bought a new dress, she sings a song.). If there is a preposition between a verb and a noun (He sings without a microphone) - that is an indirect object and a different case is needed, depending on a preposition.

Acc. is very common in Ukrainian and considered a relatively simple case.

Я люблю рибу

Мій друг читає книгу

Вона купила хліб

Ми пили вино

Ти бачив Вікторію?


I noticed that in a previous lesson, it was ti lyubish maslo. Why?


For масло accusative is just the same as nominative


Wrote exactly the same as the correct answer. Do not understand what happened. Wrote: Вона любить воду.


You should use the "Report a problem," button if you think that your answer should be accepted. Otherwise, there is no way to find out what was wrong with your answer.


Shouldn't the accent be like воду́ instead of во́ду? According to Wiktionary, at least.
