"The tree yields good apples."
Translation:Ten strom nese dobrá jablka.
isn't dobra jablka [excuse lack of accents - I don't have a keyboard for them] singular but the english is plural?
Is "dobrá jablka" in the nominative or accusative case here?
Is there a dictionary that tells you this kind of information? Verb + accusative, genitive etc.
It is accusative. There is a web vallence lexicon at http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/vallex/2.7/data/html/generated/alphabet/index.html bit it may be too hard to understand the information.
But it should be pretty clear it cannot be the nominative, because it is a direct object. And other oblique cases look differently.
You're right. That site is extremely technical.
There was another example with "stárnout" (an intransitive verb, I believe?) and it doesn't take an object so I was a bit taken aback by it after seeing a lot of "accusative verbs". Then again, I've been taking the course slowly and so I haven't seen the other cases yet. My fear is, not being able to tell in which case a verb should be used. Maybe I just need to progress more.
Thank you for your answer and this great course.
EDIT: belive => believe
