Accusative "No", but Dative "Yes"

With the exception of pronouns, Luxembourgish makes no distinction between the nominative and accusative cases. Therefore, the definite and indefinite articles undergo no change whether the noun is the subject or direct object:

  • De Vull "The bird"
  • Ech hunn de Vull "I have the bird"

However, Luxembourgish does have a dative case, meaning that articles do undergo changes when they are part of the indirect objects. For example:

  • Nominative: De Vull "The bird"
  • Accusative: Ech hunn de Vull "I have the bird"
  • Dative: Ech ginn dem Vull en Apel "I give an apple to the bird"
