Who is niego and when is it used.
I'm not sure, but I think 'niego' is the genitive form for 'him'.
You're right. But it's only one of three Genitive forms for "him": the neutral "go", the emphatic "jego" and the 'needed-after-a-preposition' "niego" :)
Jings, I'll NEVER learn this language!
Why isn't it "Ona stoi niego obok" since you can't put pronouns at the end of sentences?
The rule doesn't apply here anyway, as niego is not a direct object pronoun, but a post-prepositional pronoun.
'Obok' is a preposition. As the name suggests, it is preposed, but you just postposed it.
Ok thanks for the help :)
What's the difference between PRZY and OBOK?
In the basic meaning, they're synonymous. "Przy" needs Locative, "obok" needs Genitive.
Using "przy nim" could allow for a more metaphorical interpretation of this sentence, like "She's always there for him". But it surely could be literal as well.
Is niego always and only after a preposition?
Is niego pronounced "nee-go" or "nyeh-go"? I can't tell from the tts.
It's the latter I assume.
And you assume correctly (although of course it's a simplification) ;)
What is the crucial difference between 'obok' i 'blisko' ('next to' and 'near')? As for me, both of them denote close distance.
"obok" is right next to it, "blisko" is very subjective. Depending on the scale, "blisko" may be 50 cm or 50 km (for example you can say that some town is close to Warsaw but it still takes like 40 minutes to drive there).
