I understand that the genitive case is used instead of accusative objects when there is a negation in the sentence. Right now it's just that I don't get the reason for this. Maybe it's too difficult to address this question or not possible due to reasons that are based on the evolution of language. But if there anyone possesses knowledge regarding this I would be grateful, because until now I believed that genitive is only used to descirde possessions. Dziękuje!
Which would be the rule here? Why does it end in -a? Should it be something like: "in the genitive singular case, some masculine nouns end in -a?
