Preposition 'o' - Acc or Loc

Hi,

I'm struggling somewhat with the preposition o. From what I understand, it commands either the accusative or the locative case, but I have a hard time figuring out when to use which case. Can anybody help me out on this one?

Thanks!

T.

This wikitionary entry explains it quite clearly:

Well, I'll try to explain you. It also depends from th verb: Accusative case (biernik) - whom? what? ("help word" widzę - I see) For example: I run out of examples :/ Where did you see/hear it? Locative case (miejscownik) - (about) who? (about) what? ("help word" rozmawiam - I talk [about]) For example: Rozmawiam o króliku - I talko about [a/the] rabbit/bunny. - I know I'm bunny crazy XD

Anna_Elsa the help verbs are for Poles to understand cases. Other people usually don't know what walk with has in common with write. Or whose with is not here .
