"Ta dívka mnoho strýců."

Translation:The girl has many uncles.

November 22, 2017



why is the genitive used in this sentence?


Because of MNOHO. Expressions of amount few, many, a lot, etc.... behave the same way as numbers 5 and up... (tips under Numbers 2 explain more).

Ta dívka má 3 strýce.

Ta dívka má 7 strýců.
