So is "chleb" both the accusative and the nominative?
this is a rule for inanimate masculine nouns, and all neuter nouns.
(but there are exceptions)
It doesn't matter if you say for "girls" dziewzcinki or dziewzciny?
dziewczynki are younger, dziewczyny are older. At what age you should start using "dziewczyny", it's impossible to tell. Maybe 13, maybe 10... depends on one's opinion.
Is it just me pr does it sound like “kleb“
It kind of sounds like "fleb" on my phone. Can someone please phonetically type out how to pronounce chleb?
Or, more simply hleb
I keep getting these wrong because writing polish is impossible
Is it possible to say dziewczynki mają chleba because when i was young i remember that sound a at the end when my mother was speaking but may be is it a mistake?
It's the wrong case. Sure, "chleba" is a word (the Genitive form), but "mieć" (to have) takes Accusative.
but there is "nie mieć CHLEBA" ?????
Whenever a verb that normally takes Accusative is negated, it takes Genitive instead. That is what makes "chleb" (Acc) change into "chleba" (Gen).
Remember that this is the only case that changes when negated, other ones stay unchanged.
It’s a good rule to remember
But on another hand:
a statement: "Mam SYNA"
negation: "Nie mam SYNA"
Exception from the rule???
It's not an exception. For all singular masculine animate nouns, genitive and accusative endings are the same.
I cant remember the spelling for girl in polish
I don't have the squiggly letters on my keyboard so i got a word wrong :(
Duo does not mark you wrong for not using diacritical marks. And besides, you can always install a Polish keyboard...
The girls have (possess) bread - (Te) Dziewczyny mają chleb
The girls have (eat) bread - (Te) Dziewczyny jedzą/jadają chleb
Spelling is the bane of my existence
