"I have a brother."
Translation:У мене є брат.
What is the difference between Я маю брата and У мене є брат? What is the differences in the verbs and is their some kind of difference in case for the noun of brother? The brat/brata endings ring a bell to me from studying Polish a few years ago, but having two ways of saying 'to have', I am not really getting. Thanks!
Yes, we have two ways of saying that: у мене є and я маю. First one requires a noun in nominative, second requires a noun in accusative
