Pies vs Psa vs Psawego?

Czesc!

Can someone please explain the differences between these words? I'm still struggling and I always guess wrong when I try to pick.

Pies is a dog in nominative case. Psa is either genitive or accusative. There is no word Psawego in Polish dictionaries. If we assume that the word Psawy exists (pure theory), then the genitive of Psawy is Psawego. Psawy could be an adjective which probably means dog-alike, but there are better words to describe it like (psi, pieski). The other possibility is that there is a person with nickname Psawy (again pure theory).

Declension of word Pies:

  • mianownik (nominative) pies
  • dopełniacz (genitive) psa
  • celownik (dative) psu
  • biernik (accusative) psa
  • narzędnik (instrumental) psem
  • miejscownik (locative) psie
  • wołacz (vocative) psie
