Hello fellow language-lovers. I am an American who has been studying German for a few years. I was hoping that someone could give me a solid explanation of dat./acc. prepositions.
I read a previous post concerning IM vs IN --- the argument about motion can only go so far. For example, denken an (with ACC) does not clearly express motion.
Could someone (a native German at best) go into a detailed discussion about when a non-native speaker can recognize when the dative should be used with these two-way prepositions as opposed to the accusative?
