Hrvatski Cases - Attempt 2

 

Gledam velikog lava. I see a big lion.
Gleda velik lava mene. A big lion sees me.
On gleda velikog lava. He sees a big lion.
Ti gledaš velikog lava. You see a big lion.
Malo dijete gleda velikog lava. The small child sees the big lion.
Malo dijte gleda velik lav. The big lion sees the small boy.
Gladana žena gleda velikog lava. The hungry woman sees a big lion.
Gladanu ženu gleda velik lav. The big lion sees the hungry woman.

If I understand correctly, the word order doesn't matter if the cases are right. So:
Gladanu ženu gleda velik lav = Gleda gladanu ženu velik lav = Gladanu ženu velik lav gleda = Velik lav gleda gladanu ženu

    Well, it doesn't matter but some some sentences sound more "correct" :) It's usually: subject + verb + object or object + verb + subject. Anyway, all "types" you mentioned above are understandable and OK.

    One note: gladan (masculine) - gladna (feminine); the second "a" in "gladan" is omitted :)
