russian 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 between English and Russian Personal Pronouns is the fact that Russian ones decline and change their endings according to the case.

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.
