Latvian Pronouns

Learning the Latvian Pronouns displayed below is vital to the language. Latvian 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 Latvian, the personal pronouns are:

Es (I), tu (you), viņš (he), viņa (she), 

Mēs (we), jūs…… (you) viņi (they masc.), viņas (they fem.)

Examples: es mācos (I learn), tu mācies (you learn), viņš mācās (he learns), viņa mācās (she learns), jūs mācāties (you learn [polite]), mēs mācāmies (we learn), jūs mācāties (you learn [plural]), viņi mācās (they learn [plural masc.]), viņas mācās (they learn [plural fem.]).

Indirect Object Pronouns:

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

Man (me), tev (you), to (him, her, you (formal), mūs (us), jūs (you), tos (them):

Examples: Padod man grāmatu (give me the book). Es mīlu tevi (I love you).

Possessive Pronouns:

Mans (mine masc.), mana (mine fem.), tavs / tava (yours), viņa / viņas (his, hers), mūsu (ours), jūsu (yours), viņu (theirs).
