Summary/Abstract: Given that inadequate use of cases/prepositions leads to a change in the meaning of the entire phrase, the task of the research at hand is to determine the use of accusative which functions as spatial determiner. The research is based on a corpus which comprises selected short stories by Aleksa Šantić, given that his works have been shown to be suitable for this kind of research. The aim of the paper is to define the prepositions in question using the morphosyntactic and the semantic methods, as well as to determine the frequency of prepositions used to define accusative as a spatial determiner.
