The clever way is to approach these more complicated forms through the texts you've done before, using the pronouns instead of nouns. For example:
If we turn all the nouns into the corresponding pronouns, we would get a fun story:
- Želim da kupim njih. = Želim da ih kupim.
- Da li imate njih, ali u plavoj boji? = Da li ih imate, ali plave?
- Da li možete da mi pokažete nju i njih = Da li možete da mi je pokažete i da mi ih pokažete?
- Želim da kupim nju, nju i nju i njih. = Želim da je kupim i želim da ih kupim.
Now I have two questions:
- What does each pronoun in bold refer to?
- What changes does the word order cause?
However, the easiest way is to learn pronouns is through songs and exercises:
- Personal pronouns in the Dative with "Kafu mi draga ispeci"
- Personal pronoun "we" in different forms with "Moja draga"
- Personal pronouns in the Accusative and possessive adjectives with "Dudo"
- Mixed personal pronouns with "Tako mi svega"
Since the courses Serbian 101 and Serbian 102 deal with the following cases:
- Nominative (JA - TI/VI - ON - ONA - ON // MI - VI - ONI)
in Serbian 102 I introduced the pronouns in the Accusative:
- Accusative (MENE / SEBE - TEBE/ VAS - NJEGA - NJU - NJEGA // NAS - VAS - NJIH)
In Serbian 201 I introduce the pronouns in the Locative and Instrumental case:
- Locative ( o MENI/ SEBI - TEBI - VAMA - NJEMU - NJOJ - NJEMU // NAMA - VAMA - NJIMA)
- Instrumental (SA MNOM/SOBOM - TOBOM - VAMA - NJIM - NJOM - NJIM // NAMA - VAMA - NJIMA)
and we will practice them together in the next post!
