Personal Pronouns

Personal pronouns are words that replace nouns: I, you, he, she, it, etc.

Before we get too far in discussing pronouns, you need to know that the Dothraki language marks case: this means that the nouns and adjectives change depending on their use in the sentence—subject, direct object, indirect object, etc. You’ll learn the other cases later, but for now, we’ll just look at the nominative case of the personal pronouns, which you will use when the pronoun is a subject: I go, you are.

Singular Plural
you (familiar singular)
you (familiar plural)
you (formal plural and singular)

Note that the second person pronoun for you changes depending on number and formality: when speaking to one person, you’ll use yer; when speaking to multiple people, you’ll use yeri, somewhat like you might say you all or you guys in English. In more formal situations, you will use shafka for both singular and plural you.

One more thing to note: whenever you see a verb conjugation table in this course, the conjugations will appear in the same order as the personal pronouns chart above; the first row is first person, the second row is second person, and the third row is third person. The pronoun shafka will follow the third person conjugation.
