Accusative Case

The direct object of most verbs; the object of some prepositions.

Answers the questions: What is the action is about? Whom the action is about? I see the tree. I see what? The tree. I see Mark. I see who? Mark. We would like to visit Krakow . What would you like to visit? Krakow . I have a new dress. What do you have? A new dress.

Most common verbs used: I see, I have, I like.

Other examples: I am going to buy a plane ticket. I am going to buy what? A plane ticket. I am going to sell my car. I am going to sell what? My car.

The accusative also follows preposition that indicate going towards or motion. Pzez-through Na-on, to, towards, for I am going to the market. I am waiting for my love. I will be on vacation. I am walking through the building.

Incidentally, the most common Polish cases are the nominative (dictionary form) and accusative, which account for almost 65% of the Polish cases. The nominative, accusative, genitive, and locative accounts for over 90% of the Polish cases. But you still have to learn them all :-)


  1. Crackin' blog guys...helped me no end in my Polish course so far!

  2. Thanks mate - much appreciated :-)

  3. Hi Biluś,

    I'm afraid your chart is wrong. You didn't take into account virile gender for nouns and adjectives in plural form.


    If you'd like more info, I'm preparing something!


  4. Always happy to learn more, Chris - thanks for taking the time on this!
