translation of vocab and parts of speech

Zagen 'too see' (vrb)
Jazeker 'certainly'
Deze 'this, these'
Kijk 'look!'

Re: Review Subject/Object Pronouns

Stressed is comparison? Unstressed is just a statement?

Stressed: I am correct but you are not
Unstressed: I am correct

I think i had them backwards

Thanks.

Re: Review Subject/Object Pronouns

Is this correct?

Subject pronoun: I like to run (Ik)
Object pronoun: I like him (hem)

this has nothing to do with:

Stressed pronoun: I am correct (Ik)
Unstressed pronoun: I am correct but you are not (je)

Possesive pronoun: This is mine/ My cat (mijn in both instances?)

Thanks.

Re: gek op/ook op

Is the following sentence correct and what does it translate to:

Echt? Maar hij is niet verliefd op haar hij is volgens mij gek op jos

Oh, really. But he is not crazy about her according to me crazy about jos

I think im missing something. Is the structure 'mij gek op jos' correct?

Thanks.
