Accusative Case[edit]



Translate the following pronouns:


You (accusative)

You all (accusative, plural)




Example: Den Eisbecher, er ist Kälte (Eisbecher = bowl of ice-cream). In German, instead of saying it is very cold, you would say he is very cold. How do you know when to use he? Look at the gender of the noun. In this case the noun Eisbecher is masculine. If it were der Apfel, you would use er because Apfel is masculine.

Remember that antecedents are in the accusative form. So er turns to ihn.

Fill in the blanks:

Den goes to ____.

Die goes to ____.

Das goes to ____.

Die (plural) goes to _____.
