zu and some weird contractions- help me please!
I don't know how to use them, but I remember seeing on the Quizlet that my teacher made:
"zu", "zur", and "zum"- I KEEP SEEING THESE IN THE PART OF A SENTENCE THAT APPEARS TO BE IN ACCUSATIVE OR NOMINATIVE CASE- never mind, the chances are I don't know what I am talking about
I understand that the nominative case denotes the subject of a sentence; accusative denotes direct object- and that when in different cases, words like "ein" get different endings and the definite article changes.
I can't understand these I need help. I get that "zum" is a contraction for "zu dem" and "zur" is a contraction for "zu der"(but this is the least of my problems)- What case are they in and please help me because I only understand/know the functions of the accusative and nominative cases- so understanding whatever the function is of the case they are in would REALLY help me; thanks!
