|4.1 What is declension?|
The basic form (= Nominative; in Spanish nominativo). You'll find them by asking: Who is it? The subject (meaning the active part of a sentence) is always in nominative.
The possessive form (= Genitive; in Spanish genitivo). You'll find them by asking: Whose is it? It is mine, or his or hers.
The object form (in Spanish there are two: dativo and acusativo). In English sentences you'll find them by asking: Whom we are talking about? In Spanish there is a differentiation between a direct object (= acusativo) and an indirect object (dativo).
The last two of the four declensions are the most - let's say - interesting! Nevertheless, let's take one step at a time. Do we still understand when the object is put wrongly?
|Direct object (Whom do I see?)|
I see him.
|Indirect object (Whom do I give my house?)|
|I give he
I give him my house.
