Nouns - podstatná jména
Czech nouns are divided into three genders: masculine (mužský rod), feminine (ženský rod), and neuter (střední rod); however, in some cases differentiation is required between masculine animates (mužský rod žívotný) and masculine inanimates (mužský rod nežívotný). Gender classifications affect the endings of adjectives and which endings will be used in different grammatical cases.
Cases - pády
There are seven cases in Czech: nominative, accusative, genitive, dative, locative, instrumental and vocative. Cases use both singular and plural forms.
