Turkish Pronouns

Learning the Turkish Pronouns displayed below is vital to the language. Turkish 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 object pronouns are (me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them), In Turkish, the personal pronouns are:

Ben   (I), Sen   (you), O   (he), O  (she),  O  (it)

Biz (we), Siz    (You),   Onlar  (they)

    Examples:

    Sen öğrenirsin  means    You learn

    O öğrenir          means    He learns

    O öğrenir          means    She learns

    O öğrenir          means    It learns

    Biz öğreniriz     means    We learn

    Siz öğrenirsiniz means    You learn (plural/polite)

    Onlar öğrenirler means   They learn

Indirect Object Pronouns:

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

Bana(me), sana (you), ona (him, her,it), bize (us), size (you- polite/plural), onlara(them):
