1 PA Dutch 101 Video 17: The Accusative Case. Accusativ.

2 The Accusative Case As we covered in Video 12, the Nominative Case identifies the Subject of a sentence. The Accusative Case is used to identify the Direct Object of a sentence. In English: Alice buys the book. Alice is the Subject, book is the Direct Object. Die Alice kaaft es Buch.

3 The Definite Article (THE) In the Accusative Case, we use the following definite articles: MasculineFeminineNeuterPlural derdieesdie

4 The Indefinite Article (A/AN) The Indefinite Article does not specifically identify the noun that they are associated with. The book. vs. A book. MasculineFeminineNeuterPlural en

5 Accusative Personal Pronouns Just like the Nominative Case, the Accusative Case has its own Personal Pronouns: Nom.AccusativeNom.Accusative ichmichmiruns dudichdihreich erensie es

6 Accusative Personal Pronouns Remember that Personal Pronouns replace nouns. Accusative PPs replace the Direct Object: Ich kenn der Ralph. Ich kenn en.

7 Accusative Prepositions Unlike the Nominative Case, the Accusative Case has a set of 7 Prepositions. The rule when using these prepositions is that the noun associated with the preposition always takes the Accusative Case!

8 Accusative Prepositions bis – until, till, by darrich – through fer – for geeich – against gege – against um – around unne – without

9 Accusative Prepositions Darrich der Daag duh ich viel. Es Buch iss fer mich. Der Hund laaft um der Gaarde.

10 Accusative Prepositions Some Accusative Prepositions and Articles are contracted as long as there is a special emphasis on the article: darrich + es = darrichs fer + es = fers geeich + es = geeichs um + es = ums

11 Iewing - Practice ___ (the) Daadi leest ___ (a) Zeiding (f). Der Daadi leest en Zeiding. ___ (the) Fraa kaaft ___ (a) Tomaet (n). Die Fraa kaaft en Tomaet. Ich kenn _____ (him). Ich kenn en. Iss es Gschenk fer ___ (me)? Iss en Gschenk fer mich?
