Personal Pronouns


All About Personal Pronouns - I, you, we, you, he, she, it, they

The Personal Pronouns are not used so widely as in English as the person is evident from the personal verb ending.

They are used for emphasis only in their simple form. However they are used in their extended forms when suffixes are added for all those important little words - "to, from, with, etc." - which are discussed below.

Personal Pronouns - The Simple Forms

The Personal Pronouns are usually only used for emphasis as the verb form itself already points to the person. It is similar to Spanish where a person will say - comprendo - I understand - instead of Yo comprendo - I understand

Singular:
ben - I
sen - you - familiar
o - He, she, it

Plural:
biz - we
siz -you - plural and polite singular
onlar -they

Examples of Emphasis:

gidiyorum - I'm going - but emphasized - ben gidiyorum - I am going
kaldık - we stayed - but emphasized - biz kaldık - We stayed

Extended Forms of Personal Pronouns

The main use for the Personal Pronouns is to extend them with all the important little words - to, from, with etc. , which of course are suffixes in Turkish.

* With the -a -e suffix - to, towards:

Singular
bana - to me
sana - to you
ona - to him, to her , to it

Plural
bize - to us
size - to you
onlara - to them

Notice that the first and second person singular forms are bana and sana - they are irregular - bene and sene - would have been expected. This is a shift that has happened historically but some of the Turkic Languages have not made this Vowel Shift so - bene and sene - are used in the Kahzhak and Uzbek tongues.


Some Examples With the -a -e suffix

Bana onu verin - Give that to me
Onlara bakınız - Look at them - lit: towards them
Bize inanıyorlar - They believe us - lit: believe to us

Note that the word - inanmak - to believe - takes the Dative Case as its Object - hence Turkish says - bize inanin - believe to us. Whereas English uses the direct object for the verb - to believe - thus we say - Believe us.

We also have certain verbs in English that do not take the Direct object case - as in - "I am frightened OF the dark."

Note that the -le or -la - with - suffix is added to the Genitive Form of Pronouns. - Except for the third person plural which retains the basic form - onlarla - with them
