Decofti leson (18th lesson)

Unlike Esperanto, Russian, German, and other languages, the accusative is NOT used as an indicator of direction.  In other words, "I am going into the house" (which in the other languages, "house" would appear in the accusative/objective case), the Govoro equivalent is "mi idar A en sa hus"  "I am going to in the house".

Also, in contrast to Esperanto, Govoro does not allow for prepositions to be replaced by the accusative:

Mi alasar isto despin dens.  I will stay (during) 15 days.
Li ider a Pariz.  He went to Paris.
Tuto kostar po ce dolars.  That costs (at the rate of) 3 dollars.
