Zrobiłem tą pracę na polecenie mojego szefa. (Sentence Note)

  • polecenie (noun) = recommendation. errand
  • polecić (-cę -cisz) (pf), (impf) polecać +Acc (+Dat) = recommend. entrust something (to someone)


Here, the demonstrative pronoun should be “tę” rather than “tą”.

Using (the instrumental form) in place of (the accusative form) is, sadly, a common error among Polish native speakers.


Thanks, I’ll report it next time around. It’s funny, I was looking at that sentence and thought there was something wrong with it but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it!
