In this lesson we'll speak about declensions. We'll look at nouns, adjectives and pronounces to see how they are changed by the cases. First we should speak about what the cases are like.


Cases is practicallu one of the most difficult topics in Novoslovnica for English speakes. That's because of English historic case loss.

In Novoslovnica we have 9 cases: Nominative, Genitive, Partitive, Accusative, Dative, Instrumental, Prepositional, Locative and Vocative.




Let's build a table that will gather our knowledge about pronoun declension.
