Personal pronouns in Romanian - Accusative Case
While in the previous lesson we dealt with the Nominative case, in this lesson we'll be focusing on the personal lesson in the Accusative case. The two next lessons will cover the Dative and Genitive cases.
Let's take this sentence: Eu am mâncat iaurt acasă dimineață (I ate yogurt at home in the morning).
"Iaurt" is the direct object, and is in the accusative case.
"Acasă" and "dimineată" are indirect objects still in the accusative case.
Personal pronouns in the Accusative case
Romanian has two forms of the personal pronouns in the Accusative case, an unstressed shorter form and a stressed one.
Just to help you we have added as a reference point the Nominative form of the personal pronouns:
|singular||1st||eu (I)||mă, m-|
|singular||3rd (masculine)||el (he)||îl, -l, l-|
|singular||3rd (feminine)||ea (she)||o, -o, o-|
|plural||2nd||voi (you)||vă, -v, v-|
|plural||3rd (masculine)||ei (they)||îi, -i, i-|
|plural||3rd (feminine)||ele (they)||le|
Moreover this letter is pronounced together with the preceding or the following word.
This means that you need to listen attentively!
