So in the accusative, words ending in "а" change their ending regardless of their gender?
Yes, nouns ending in "a" always behave like feminine nouns, even if they are masculine. However, if masculine nouns that end in an "a" are modified by an adjective, the adjective would have to be in a masculine form.
I don't think there are any inanimate masculine nouns ending with "-а" or "-я". The reason some nouns ending with "-а" or "-я" are considered to be masculine is because they refer to a male, but inanimate objects don't have biological gender so they don't fall under this exception..

The wonders of the System, as far as I know even the mods have only very limited control over the speech synth. Most mistakes have been noted long ago, but no one knows if they're ever going to be fixed.
I heard "Я вижу ейиё папу" (ye yi yo pa pu), expected to hear just "yi yo". Is this just me being crazy, is it actually pronounced this way or is this a mistake of the text-to-speech?
