The suffixes of the word "את"
The word "את" has suffixes to indicate person and number, like every other preposition. Note that the plural "you" bucks the trend and starts with "et", not "ot":
EnglishHebrewMeאותי (oti)You (singular masculine)אותךָ (otkha)You (singular feminine)אותךְ (otakh)Himאותו (oto)Herאותה (ota)Usאותנו (otanu)You (plural masculine)אתכם (etkhem)You (plural feminine)אתכן (etkhen)Them (masculine)אותם (otam)Them (feminine)אותן (otan)
You might hear some native Israeli speakers using אותכם/אותכן (otkhem/otkhen) for the 2nd person plural, "you". This follows the pattern of "ot" used by the other persons of the word, but it is technically incorrect from the tips and notes for Duolingo Hebrew.
