There are more and more "false friends" for russians :-) "Drewniany zegar" is like "ancient tan" ("древний загар"). My grandma lived in the village and had permanent tan whole year after many years.
"My grandma has a wood clock" I say this a lot, just shorter than saying "clock made of wood" or "wooden"
Why is "My grandma has got a wooden clock" not accepted?
I don't get why we're using nominative instead of accusative here... after verb to have, shouldn't we use drewnianego zegara instead of drewniany zegar?
It is accusative, but a clock is an inanimate object. The -nego ending is only used for animate beings.
I came here looking for this exact answer. Completely forgot about the inanimate and animate differences. Thank you.
