Czech case reference (for verbs)?
Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone knows a place which can tell me which case certain verbs use?
For example, if I type "I eat a flower" into Google Translate, I get "Jím květu", which is obviously not nominative...and I can try lots of nouns and suss out the case eventually, but it would be nice if there was a reference somewhere...
...And in case anyone is curious, for the prepositions I have been using the Wikipedia page for declension to determine the cases used: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_declension#Prepositions_with_certain_cases
See if this is of use: http://utkl.ff.cuni.cz/~rosen/public/GGG/Czech_essent_grammar.pdf
vallex 3.0 (set to show the example of použít/používat here): you need to know the case numbers, not just names, and get familiar with the nomenclature of this tool.
ÚJČ (same example): see the table of conjugations directly and click on "SSČ" or "SSJČ" to expand usage notes with examples; but it is in czech and the case is usually shown only implicitly by examples.
Only one funny note : "Květa" is a Czech female given name.
A sentence "Jím Květu" means "I am eating Květa", so ..... "Enjoy your food !" ;-)
