Ænglisc / Old English - Lesson XIV - Pronouns I (1st Person Pronouns)

[I TAKE NO PERSONAL CREDIT FOR THESE LESSONS]

Ƿesaþ ġē hāl!

If you missed the previous lesson (The Imperative Mood) click here -

Now that we have gone over some basic grammar, I think that it is time to go over some pronouns (although, by now, I expect that you know a few!)

Why am I going through this AFTER I tell you about the grammar, and not before? I did this as some of you will doubtlessly not be at all familiar with the grammar of Germanic Languages, and would therefore not truly understand what we are getting into - Well, you know now (if you still don't click on this lesson list, and recap on the ''grammar & grammatical cases'' lessons)

Let's get into it!

Firstly, we will dive into the 1st Person Personal Pronouns!

Nom.

ic = I (Sing.)

wit = we (Dual.)

we = we (Plural.)

Gen.

min = my (Sing.)

uncer = of us (of ours) (Dual.)

user or ure = of us (our)

Acc.

mec or me = me (direct object) (Sing.)

uncit or unc = us (direct object) (Dual.)

usic or us = us (direct object)

Dat./Instrum.

me = with me (or indirect object) (Sing.)

unc = with us (or indirect object) (Dual.)

us = with us (or indirect object) (Plural.)

P.S - Sing = 1 person, Dual = 2 people, Plural = a group of 3 or more people :)
