"Honti" vs "Hontesse"

I've been studying High Valyrian out of curiosity and for fun. So far, it has been going fairy well. But I don't understand when I am supposed to use "Honti" or "Hontesse". Similar with the two different plural forms of "Azantys" (Knight). If someone could please explain it would help a lot.

It is the accusative case vs. the nominative case (compare him vs. he in English). The accusative case is used when a noun is the direct object of a verb, in other words the thing that something is being done to. The nominative is used when the noun is the subject, in other words the thing that is doing something.

So "Hontesse" is the nominative case and "Honti" is the accusative case?

The accusative is actually "hontī", but yes.

That's the singular accusative. I was talking about the plural accusative.

I believe JenFeder1 is correct.

The 4th declension has both the accusative singular and accusative plural end in ī.

Examples from the course:

Zokli hontī urnesi. The wolves see the birds.

Zokli hontī ipradis. The wolves are eating a bird.
