    Though I am probably misunderstanding these authors' teachings or context, I have found that David Short makes a statement in his book that the locative case is required after 'o' (about). However, Heim's textbook has the example of 'zajimat se o koho co' (accusative). I must be missing something here. Any explanation for the difference. Thanks.

    Dekuji Wicker 808. The full article is very enlightening though somewhat daunting, but it explains my question.

    No problem, DanielZ. There are some good articles there, but it's highly incomplete and full of small errors.

    There are a few other prepositions which can take multiple declensions, depending on context, usage or the verb used with it, e.g. "v" and "na."

    Yes, Sova, I have been noticing what you mention, especially the usage of certain cases with certain verbs. At times, it appears that certain verbs require a case, no matter the position or usage of the declining word in question. Some verbs require a case such as rozumet and others require a set preposition in a particular case. Very interesting.
