I'd like to know which Slavic languages require that a genitive be used after a negated verb. I already know that Polish does and Russian also does in most cases, but Czech doesn't (except for some set phrases) and Macedonian doesn't either for lack of a genitive . I'd appreciate a translation of my example in the affirmative and in the negative. English: I eat meat./I don't eat meat. Polish: Jem mięso./Nie jem mięsa. Czech? Jím maso./Nejím maso. Russian: Я ем мясо./Я не ем мяса. Macedonian: Jадам месо./Не jадам месо. Thank you all.
