Case patterns of nouns
I would like to ask someone who is knowledgeable about Latin about case patterns of nouns following some verbs or some other parts of speech.
For example, I've noticed that the verb "studere" is followed by the dative case instead of the accusative case which I would expect.
Similarly, my understanding is that the numeral "quot" is followed by the accusative case instead of the genitive case which I would expect.
So far, I've gone through five skills of the course.
the meaning of "studere" is different than the meaning of "to study". from wiktionary: "I dedicate myself (to), direct my efforts or attention (to)".
