Juice is the direct object or the subject [basicly whatever the verb is being done to] of the sentence thus making it in the accusative case. Masculine words take an -en ending on articles in the accusative e.g. der-den, ein-einen, mein-meinen. This may help explain it http://german.about.com/library/blcase_acc.htm
Just a side remark: subject of a sentence is the agent who performs the action, whereas object of a sentence is the thing upon which that action is performed. Thanks for the explanation btw
"Mein" is used for neuter (neutral) nouns, where "meinen" is used for masculine nouns. It is the same as is the case with "einen Apfel" and "ein Pferd."
Linking verbs (or copula) require the nominative case, so the verb sein (to be) won't have its complement in accusative.
Its a akkusative sentence... In akku. Der becomes den.. Thats y meinen saft.
Okay so this one is like somebody saying hes mine not yours, but er ist mein mann is like answering someones question... like wer ist er . Er ist mein mann... which is nomitave case?
Saft is masculine? On the past lesson, I learned that it is Neuter. Confused now....
This has to be by far the hardest topic I've ever encountered in the German language.
