Here are my grammar cheat sheet
During my learning of Polish, I have written down all the grammar rules I would find, and it turns out it is many!
I am now posting in them in a blog, maybe it can be useful to more than me.
Here it is: http://worldwords.eu/
Beware that it is only "cheat sheet", it will not teach you the language.
List of articles:
One of my goals is to finish the Polish tree somewhere this year, so thanks! :)
Shortcuts for cases:
every plural noun gets "ami"
every plural adj. gets "ymi" or "imi"
feminine singular gets "ą", both nouns and adj.
every masculine singular noun gets "em"
every masculine singular adj. gets "ym" or "im"
neuter singular adjs. and nouns are the same as masculine singular adjs. and nouns
feminine singular adjs. get "ą"
feminine singular nouns get "ę"
masculine personal and animate singular (masculine 'moving' as I call that) adjs. get "ego"
masculine personal plural adjs. get "ych" or "ich".
Mnemotechnic:"Ego" means the same as "ich", Latin vs. German
masculine moving singular nouns get "a"
masculine personal plural gets "ów" or "i" or "y"
the rest remains nominative
masculine moving singular is the same as accusative, "ego" for adjs. and "a" for nouns
masculine personal plural is the same, but nouns only "ów"
masculine inanimate nouns get "u" instead of "a", but adjs. get "ego" as well
other masculine plural nouns do get "y/i"
feminine plural adjs. are "ych/ich"
feminine singular adjs. are "ej"
all feminine nouns are "y/i" plural and singular
neuter plural is the same as feminine, "ych/ich" and "y/i"
neuter singular is the same as masculine moving singular, "ego" and "a"
I'll stop there. Those are some kind of shortcuts
For the endings, I'd go to [link removed for safety reasons]
Locative is used after most (but not all, for sure not: przed/za/nad/pod) of the prepositions denoting location, so the most common one will probably be "w" ('in').
It is also used after "o", meaning "about", when this "about" could be substituted with "on the topic of" (like "książka o zwierzętach" = "a book about animals).
Thank you, these are very helpful. I was wondering if anyone knew any specific websites or exercises I could do to practise the case endings? I'm not very good at the cases and find them quite frustrating so I would love something to help me practise them. Good luck with your language learning everyone :)
