"Du isst meinen Fisch."

February 18, 2013


Is it 'meinen' because it's in the accusative? Or because 'fish' is a masculine word? Or both?

Both. What matters is the case and the gender/number.

Masculine: mein (nominative); meinen (accusative)

Feminine: meine (nominative + accusative)

Neuter: mein (nominative + accusative)

Plural (all genders): meine (nominative + accusative)
