How do you tell which homonym you need to use? What about Ze, she or they? Jullie, Je, or Jij, which do you use?

The following page will probably help: Grammar: Jij vs. Je / Zij vs. Ze / Wij vs. We. If you still have questions after reading that don't hesitate to ask! =)

Those are the terms used to distinguish between the stressed/emphasis (marked) use, and the unstressed/normal (unmarked) use. Why it's called (un)marked I have no clue sorry =)
