Isikulised asesõnad – Personal Pronouns

A personal pronoun is a pronoun that is associated primarily with a particular person, in the grammatical sense.

  • First person, as in “I”
  • Second person, as in “you”
  • Third person, as in “It, he, she”

Alusekääne (kes/mis?)

  • I mina
  • you sina
  • he tema (M)
  • she tema (N)
  • it see
  • we meie
  • you teie
  • they nemad

Sihitisekääne (keda/mida? kellele/millele?)

  • me mind, minule
  • you sind, sinule
  • him teda, temale (M)
  • her teda, temale (N)
  • it seda, sellele
  • us meid, meile
  • you teid, teile
  • them neid, neile

Personal pronouns provide us with the following information:

  • The person – Who is speaking?
  • The number – Is the pronoun plural or singular?
  • The gender – Is the pronoun feminine, masculine, or neuter?

Omastavad asesõnad – Possessive Pronouns

Possessive pronouns are those designating possession. They may also be used as substitutes for noun phrases, and they are typically found at the end of a sentence or clause.

There are only two specific rules for using them correctly:

  • Like its name suggests, a possessive pronoun indicates ownership.
  • Possessive pronouns do not contain apostrophes.
