The impossible code otherwise known as Czech

Just to make some sense out of the pujduing za zenskou. Dr. Fort says Pujdu za zenskou can mean two things:

1. Pujdu + za + accusative -zenskou osobu-  means I'm going dressed as a woman. Zenskou is an adjective and the noun osoba is ellipted (is that a word?)

2. Pujdu + za + instrumental -zenskou osobou- means I'm going to my woman. Again ellipsis.

It's all about the ellipsis.

Tak pujdes na pomlasku zitra? :-)
