Глаз (часть вторая)

by Don  

Yesterday we mentioned that the word глаз declines like this:

Genглаза, глазуглаз
Preглазе, глазуглазах

Note the alternative forms of the prepositional case. The prepositional form in -у is a ‘locative’ form, which appears after the prepositions в and на when they indicate location. Thus I might say:

У меня соринка в глазу. I have a speck in my eye.

But if I'm talking about an eye, then the form in -е appears:

У моего брата разноцветные глаза. Я хочу сказать тебе о его левом глазе. My brother's eyes are different colors. I want to tell you about his left eye.
