Armenian Pronouns

Learning the Armenian Pronouns is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you master it the more you get closer to mastering the Armenian language. But first we need to know what the role of Pronouns is in the structure of the grammar in Armenian.

Armenian 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 Armenian, the personal pronouns are:

Ես (I), դու (you), նա (he/she/it – in Armenian only one pronoun is used for he, she, it) 

Մենք (we), դուք…(you plur.),  նրանք (they masc./fem.)

Examples: ես սովորում եմ (I learn), դու սովորում ես (you learn), նա սովորում է (he/she learns), Դուք  սովորում եք/is used in plural form to address either 1 or more persons/ (you learn [polite]), մենք  սովորում ենք (we learn), դուք սովորում եք (you learn [plural, friendly]), Նրանք  սովորում են  (used both for fem./masc.) ustedes aprenden (you learn [plural, polite]).

 

Indirect Object Pronouns:

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

ինձ (me), քեզ (you), նրան (him, her), Ձեզ (you-formal), մեզ (us), Ձեզ (you), նրանց (them):

Examples: Տուր ինձ գիրքը(give me the book). Ես սիրում եմ քեզ (I love you).

 

Possessive Pronouns:

իմը (mine masc./fem.-sing./plur), քոնը (yours), նրանը (his, hers), մերը (ours), vuestro / ձերը (yours), նրանցը (theirs).
