Personal Pronouns

Personal pronouns are used to indicate a particular grammatical person - 1st person (I, we), 2nd person (you), or 3rd person (he, she, it, they).

The main difference in English vs Russian Personal Pronouns is the fact that Russian ones also have 6 cases.

Please refer to the tables below.

Note: notice that the masculine and neuter 3rd person singular pronouns are the same in all cases but the Nominative case.
