    I'll say two words.

    I'll say two words.
    Is it:
    1. Я скажу два слова.
    Или
    2. Я скажу два слова.
    I think два слова is in the accusative case as it is the direct object. It also has to do with numbers, so could it be in the genetive singular case then?

    1. It is genitive singular. Inanimated objects stay in this form when sentence structure require accusative.

    два is in the accusative case since it is the direct object, but since слово is inanimate, the accusative form is identical to the nominative form.

    слова is in the genitive singular since it follows the numeral два.
