Albanian Pronouns

Learning the Albanian Pronouns displayed below is vital to the language. Albanian pronouns include personal pronouns (refer to the persons speaking, the persons spoken to, or the persons or things spoken about), indefinite pronouns, relative pronouns (connect parts of sentences) and reciprocal or reflexive pronouns (in which the object of a verb is being acted on by verb's subject).

Grammar Tips:

In English personal pronouns are (I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they), and (me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them), In Albanian, the personal pronouns are:

Unë (I), ti (you), ai (he), ajo (she), 

Ne (we), Ju (you plural)ata (they masc.), ato (they fem.)

Examples: Unë mësoj (I learn), ti mëson (you learn), ai mëson (he learns), ajo mëson (she learns), Ju mësoni (you learn [polite]), ne mësojmë (we learn), ju mësoni (you learn [plural, friendly]), ata mësojnë (they learn), ata/ato mësojnë (they learn), ju mësoni (you learn [plural, polite]).

Indirect Object Pronouns:

Indirect object pronouns are words that replace the indirect object, which is usually a person.

Unë/mua (me), iti (you), i tij/ e/saj/ ytja (him, her, you (formal), neve (us), juve (you), tyre (them):

Examples: Ma jep librin (give me the book). Të dua (I love you).

Possessive Pronouns:

 i imi (mine masc.),  e imja (mine fem.), mia (mine, plural masc.), të míat (mine, plural fem.), tuat (yours), të tij/të saj (his, hers), tonat (ours), të juve (yours), të tyre (theirs).

Note: 2nd person singular ti is the familiar form, used when addressing a close friend, a child, or e member of one's family. The polite form of address is 2nd person plural ju. Notice that the pronoun unë (I) is not written with a capital in Albanian.

Unlike English, the Albanian language has two different forms for the 3rd person plural, respectively, Ata, which is masculine and Ato , which is feminine.
