Hi Tommy,

Does this answer that Paul gave help you?

Perhaps the search engine is broken here at Rocket Languages.

If you like, you can copy the Google Sheet I have here so you can find stuff easier:

I use it to search dict.cc and Rocket Languages as well as to keep some notes and categorize various statements I find as nominative/accusative/dative/genitive.

If you want to collaborate on it, you can request full access and we can share updates. Anybody else is welcome also.

Okay!  concerning the Ein Kaffee Vs. Einen Kaffee. I get the picture now, Please forgive me for doubting the correct article. I'm al old guy, we don't change our opinion right or wrong, But I'll give in this time. I had to relearn english grammer. After all I been out of school at least 40 years and I'm a product of the 6os and 70s, We burned  out a lot of Brain cells hanging out with the good Doctor Timthony Learry.

I never knew Timothy.

During the 1960s and 1970s, he was arrested often enough to see the inside of 29 different prisons worldwide. President Richard Nixon once described Leary as "the most dangerous man in America".

I grew up with Nancy Reagan.

She championed recreational drug prevention causes by founding the "Just Say No" drug awareness campaign, which was considered her major initiative as First Lady.

Speaking for us old guys, Tommy (I'm 75) you gotta change your opinions, at least once in awhile.  It's not the sixties anymore, although we had some good times then.  My grandkids would never believe the things we did then, and I'm not going to tell them.  Anyway, nothing to do with grammar but chatting on the forum from time to time is fun.
