1. Tables of Ukrainian nouns
There are 7 cases in the Ukrainian Case System. A case indicates the function of a word in a sentence (object, subject, mode,…). If you want to know more about cases and how to use them, you can visit our Ukrainian cases course.
In the tables below you can find all noun endings for each case.
2. Tables of Ukrainian adjectives
Ukrainian adjectives agree with the noun in gender, number and case. In our course on Ukrainian cases we have created two lessons for each grammatical case: a lesson for nouns and a lesson for adjectives.
In the tables below you can see the different endings of Ukrainian adjectives for each case (except Vocative which has only noun endings).
3. Tables of Ukrainian pronouns
Both in Ukrainian and English we have personal pronouns (I, you, he, she, it, we,…) and possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, our,…)
Case system for Ukrainian pronouns
You’ll find below two tables: possessive and personal pronouns. Each table shows the 6 Ukrainian cases (there are no pronoun forms in Vocative) and their endings.
4. Tables of Ukrainian numbers
Numbers are part of the basic vocabulary that every student who starts studying Ukrainian needs to know. Knowing how to pronounce them is a matter of practice and patience (here we have the list of all the numbers from 0 to 1000 with the pronunciation). But, unfortunately, knowing how to count to 1000 in Ukrainian is not enough. The complexity lies in knowing how to decline the numbers in all cases. Here you can see the table of declensions.
What is grammar? Grammar is the study of the set rules that tell us how to speak and write in any language correctly. Thanks to learning grammar, we know how to build words and phrases. In other words, it is not enough to know many Ukrainian words, you also need to know how to use them in the right order and with the right endings, so you can create sentences in Ukrainian.
When should you start learning grammar? When it comes to learning a foreign language, the more you learn the better. That’s quite logical. But in order to set priorities, we have to know the best moment for each step in the learning process. In general, we can say that right at the beginning you shouldn’t worry about grammar too much. Once you know some vocabulary, you can start having a look at cases, verb tenses or the word order in a sentence. In other words, before knowing grammar you should learn vocabulary.
Ukrainian is not an exception: the case system is important, but knowing it perfectly won’t help you much if your vocabulary is limited. If you have just started learning Ukrainian, you can visit other sections on this website (for example, our Ukrainian courses for beginners) before focusing on grammar.
