Ænglisc / Old English - Lesson XIV - Pronouns I (1st Person Pronouns)
[I TAKE NO PERSONAL CREDIT FOR THESE LESSONS]
Ƿesaþ ġē hāl!
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!
ic = I (Sing.)
wit = we (Dual.)
we = we (Plural.)
min = my (Sing.)
uncer = of us (of ours) (Dual.)
user or ure = of us (our)
mec or me = me (direct object) (Sing.)
uncit or unc = us (direct object) (Dual.)
usic or us = us (direct object)
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 :)
