Also in Slavic languages adverbials behave in the same way, ie. time
adverbials exhibit the accusative, behaving as if they were arguments of
the verb. In Polish we have:
Pracowal cala noc (he worked whole-acc. night-acc.=he worked during an
entire night)
Przesiedzial z nim godzine (he sit with him hour-acc. = he sit with him for
an hour)
On prozil tam god (he lived there a-year(acc)=he lived a year there)
On prolezal nedelju (he stayed-in-bed a-week(acc)= he stayed in bed for a
week), ecc.
