|There are a few nouns in Russian which take an old form of the prepositional which ends on accented -y/ю when accompanied by the locative prepositions в and на. For example, to say 'about the garden' in Russian, you would use the normal prepositional ending -e: о саде; however, to say 'in the garden' the Prepositional 2 is used: в саду.
|Some of the most common nouns which are susceptible to the second prepositional ending are:
|| бал 'ball (dance)' |
| Back to the Case System|
- accent always falls on this ending when Prepositional 2 is used;
- prepositional 2 is only used with the prepositions в 'in' and на 'on' and never with o 'about'.
