German - Kasus in a sentence Hello. I'm currently learning German, and I have come upon a quite confusing thing, which is about kasuses. When a sentence is so long that it has 2 sentencejoints, does the kasus "reset" between the two of them? Ex: ICH möchte eine Cola haben, möchtest DU auch etwas trinken? Should the "DU" be "dich", or "dir" instead of "du"? With most regards, Marius.

No, it is correct this way. Both "ich" and "du" are nominative in their part of the sentence.

In this example you can replace the comma by a period and get two completely separated sentences. Each of them has a subject ("ich" and "du" respectively), which has to be in the nominative case.
