Adjectives and the Accusative Case
When you place an adjective before a day, the word die Woche (week), a month, or the word das Jahr (year), the phrase has to be in the accusative case. That's important for masculine nouns, because remember that the article changes from der to den. You'll learn more about adjective endings in Chapter 18, but for now note that the gender and accusative case are indicated by endings on the adjectives here. Look at the examples in Table 12-7. Listen to your CD for the German pronunciation.
