What case do you use here? Locative? Sorry to bother you guys but i am trying to get along with the cases system and i have some issues ^^;
I thought it was genitive, because of the u ending... but I must be wrong
Thank you guys. So, for describing a place or a time in which the action is taking place i use the locative. Is it a fair synthesis? :D
With place, yes. With time every unit of time has its own thing . W+ locative is for months, and years. W+ accusative is for days of the week.
Na wiosnę (acc), w lecie (loc), w jesieni (loc), w zimie(loc) W dzień ( acc) w nocy (loc)
yes I think you are right. If you use "W" answering when? then anything longer than a day seems to be locative ( I guess a night is longer than a day), and a day is accusative,
Also we have w tydzień/w dzień/ w noc / w minutę (accusative) to describe amount of time. (Wybudowali to w dwa lata -they have buid it in two years- it took him two years to build it)
Keep in mind we still have "o", "na" "za" and instrumental
Thank you Immery. Let me recap to see if i get it right: I use [W+Loc.] for extended time frames and [W+Acc.] for smaller ones; is it correct?
or even beer
The history of small beer dates back for centuries
. In the days when sanitation was bad and water dangerous to drink,
small beer was served to servants, field workers, the poor, even the young
. The first runnings from a brewer's mash would go to a stronger beer, the second for ordinary beer.
A small beer, taken from a third running, was probably about 2.5% alcohol by volume.
Belgian monasteries, in particular, produced large quantities of small beer in the Middle Ages.
