Why don't we use here Genetive form for psy? I thought that psy is animate masculine so we need to use Genetive form instead of default Nominative?
that is for singular. in singular masculine animated nouns have accusative = genitive. But in plural masculine words divide into personal and not personal. Pies/psy is not personal, so like all not masculine personal nouns it has accusative = nominative
It is a singular form of the verb
kocham= I love
and plural form of noun
psy=dogs (plural, nominative= accusative)
Because the feeling is clearly stronger for the person that says this.
I noticed that you commented on 'loving coffee' and that was a bit of a grey area, true, but there's definitely not a problem in Polish with 'loving' animals.
because unfortunately we have more than one conjunction pattern. there is no way to know which first person singular form it is from infinitive.
look here http://www.skwierzyna.net/polishgrammar.pdf (begins on page 42)
The citation form of the verb (the form used by dictionaries) is the infinitive. One must learn, for each infinitive, what the 1st person and 2nd person singular forms are. The other forms of the present tense may be predicted from these two forms. There are four classes (conjugations) of verbs
Polish grammar books are more generous in counting conjugations koniugacja I on wikitionary thera are 11 tables and if you count sub tables 18
Thank you for all your helpful replies today, I really feel like I'm beginning to get a grasp of it!
