Lol I accidentally said I am bread
No one shall know my secret Identity!
I am bread would be: „Jam (jest) chleb” or „Jam chleb (jest)” grammar itself (but not this course) allows to split ending from verb, leaving it as if it was 3rd person and attaching this suffix to any of the words in a sentence.
Why doesn't the basics section show the verb in its irregular form? Otherwise beginner speakers will have no clue.
What does accusative and nominative mean?
These are 2 out of 7 cases in Polish language. Nominative is the basic form of the word, the one that you will find in a dictionary.
To learn more, I would advise checking this topic for posts about cases.
Życzę powodzenia tym co uczą sie Polskiego z tak fatalnym lektoro-transalotem. Nawet ja, Polak, nie wiem co on w ogóle mówi ... Dopiero w zwolniobym tempie cos tam słychać w
Is chleb accusative or nominitive in this instance? Are those proper case names?
In this case, it's accusative. Chleb remais the same either in nominative and in accusative.
You can take as a rule that masculine nonanimate singular nouns have the accusative=nominative, and masculine animate singular accusative=genitive
Shouldnt it be "I am eating" instead of "I eat"?
No, almost all Polish verbs (apart from verbs of motion) work perfectly well for both Present Simple and Present Continuous.
GAH I wrote I et bread and got it WRONG!
grr.... 20 point streak for this...
I eat a bread should be correct, too. With undefined article.
You don't really say "a bread" in English. Bread is uncountable. You can count loaves of bread.
Would "ja je chleb" also be technically correct then? But "jem" is preferred to "ja je"?
No, "je" means "he/she/it eats".
