"We know this boy."
Translation:Znamy tego chłopca.
You need accusative after "znam" . Boy is masculine animated so Genitive=Accusative.
Do you love this child--Kochasz to dziecko. Oh...answered this. Chłopca is masculine. Hence tego.
Ok so let me make sure i understand.
"We know this boy" This boy is acusitive because its the direct object, So i can teat which endings to use by asking " we know what? This boy. So pick the appropriate ending, right? Znamy tego chłopca
"You are a boy" jesteś chłopcem. (Ending changes again cause accusitive?)
"This boy drinks juice" Ten Chłopiec pije sok. Uses ten chłopiec because he is who the sentence is talking about and nothing is happening to this boy, so it uses the "instrumental" cases of ten and chłopiec because the sentence is about what the boy is doing, correct?
I have a hard time understanding when people try to explain using terms like genitive, accusitive etc because ot just goes over my head. So im making sure i understand it in simple terms.
