And... what's the matter with "ten jest"?

January 22, 2016


"this is" is always "to jest" regardless of gender of noun. Think of german Das ist.... vs der/die/das

This is the perfect explanation. Thank you a lot. I took German in high school so this makes much more sense to me now

Why do you use here the nominative, instead of the instrumental? This is the verb byc, isnt it?

Nominative is used as a complement of the identifying phrase to jest/są - that is/those are: To jest nowe muzeum. That is a new museum-Nom. To są moje okulary. Those are my eyeglasses.
