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

  2. The AccusativeCase • 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 kaaftesBuch.

  3. The Definite Article (THE) • In the AccusativeCase, we use the following definite articles:

  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.

  5. Accusative Personal Pronouns • Just like the Nominative Case, the Accusative Case has its own Personal Pronouns:

  6. Accusative Personal Pronouns • Remember that Personal Pronouns replace nouns. • Accusative PPs replace the Direct Object: • Ichkennder Ralph. • Ichkennen.

  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 Daagduh ichviel. • EsBuchissfermich. • Der Hundlaaftum 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 = darrich’s • fer + es = fer’s • geeich + es = geeich’s • um + es = um’s

  11. Iewing - Practice • ___ (the) Daadileest ___ (a) Zeiding (f). • DerDaadileestenZeiding. • ___ (the) Fraakaaft ___ (a) Tomaet (n). • DieFraakaaftenTomaet. • Ichkenn _____ (him). • Ichkennen. • IssesGschenkfer ___ (me)? • Iss en Gschenkfermich?
