The language is inflected, nouns have three genders, and adjectives agree with nouns. So, for instance, 'Polish film(s)' may be 'polski film', 'polskiego filmu', 'polskim filmom' .. depending on the construction.

Possesives and personal pronouns also decline depending on number, case and gender. So 'my' can be 'moye, 'moich', 'moim', 'moimi' and 'moich' and so on.
