Does the accusative case ending trump the prepositional case?
As wouldn't школу otherwise be школе when combined with в?
В/на are used with Prepositional when they mean place of action of where something is.
В/на are used with Accusative when they mean the direction of motion or action.
Thanks for the quick reply!
Ha ! I had the same question in an other topic ! Thank you for the clarification... I should have paid more attention to words in bold from the "Prepositional case" lesson ! :)
And мальчик идёт к школу? Wouldn't it be more appropriate?
к школу is ungrammatical.
It is к школе if you mean the general direction of the motion (в школу implies that the boy is going to be at school eventually).
Malchyck is not an idiot because he goes to school :)
Also it means an intention before the action.
Мальчик пойдет в школу.
Мальчик собирается в школу
Мальчик собирается пойти в школу.
