118 – The Prepositional case with neuter singular nouns

3+

In the previous lessons we have learned to form the Prepositional case with masculine and feminine Russian nouns. Here are the rules to form the Prepositional with neuter singular nouns:

For neuter nouns ending in …
о -> replace with е
е -> no changes, but
ие -> replace with ии

ли́цо – о лице́ (face)
окно – об окне́ (window)
де́рево – о де́реве (tree)
зда́ние – о зда́нии (building)
со́лнце – о со́лнце (sun)
жилище́ – о жили́ще (habitation)
варе́нье – о варе́нье (jam)
