5-7. The Nominative and Prepositional Case
Read the section 5. Case on page 32 of the Textbook.
Be sure you understand the concept of "case" in Russian. Get used to the idea that most words in Russian will have endings depending on how they are used in a sentence.
Read the section 6. The Nominative Case on page 32 of the Textbook.
Read the section 7. The Prepositional Case on pp. 33-34 of the Textbook.
The prepositional case answers the questions where something or someone is located, or where something is happening. In thins lesson the places are names of countries, towns and cities. You may be wondering, how do you write the names of non-Russian, such as American cities and states? The rules are not very simple. First, try to find the name in a dictionary, or in a translation program. If that's not an option, guess by writing the name the way it sounds, and NOT the way it is written. For example, the name of the city Auburn would not be written as Аубурн (the way it is spelled), but Обэрн, which is closest to the way it is pronounced. Places that in English end in -ia (California) in Russian would end in -ия, Калифорния.
