[edit] [top]Personal pronouns

As with nouns, personal pronouns in Gutiskar decline for all cases and numbers. However, unlike the nouns, pronouns are inflected for three numbers: singular, dual, and plural (same as verbs). The third person pronouns also inflect for gender (masculine, feminine, neuter).

[edit] [top]Reflexive pronoun

The reflexive pronoun is the same for all three numbers and genders. It also lacks a nominative form.

[edit] [top]Possessive pronouns

Gutiskar has separate possessive pronouns which decline like adjectives; they all follow the same paradigm. The table below presents the declension paradigm of the first person singular pronouns ("my").

SINGULAR1st p. masc1st p. neut.1st p. fem.
Nominative mínarmíntmínó
Accusative mínanmínar
Genitive mínasmínrór
Dative mínammín
Instrumental mínamín
PLURAL
Nominative mínæmínómínór
Accusative mínar
Genitive mín
Dative mínær
Instrumental mínir


The other personal pronouns follow the same pattern:
  • þínar "your/thine" (2nd p. sg.)
  • esar "his" (3rd p. sg. m.) and "its" (3rd p. sg. n.)
  • rǿrar "her" (3rd p. sg. f.
  • ýkar "our" (1st p. dual)
  • íkar "your" (2nd p. dual)
  • érar "their" (3rd p. dual and pl.)
  • ýsar "our" (1st p. pl.)
  • sínar "self's" (reflexive, used for all persons and genders)


The 2nd person plural possessive pronoun ("your") is, however, slightly irregular:

Accusative irvar
Genitive irðrá
Dative irvær

[edit] [top]Usage of possessive pronouns

The usage of the possessive pronouns is rather straightforward, but a few things should be noted, mainly in regard to the reflexive pronoun.

Observe the following examples:
  1. Hit í mínó bókar. ("This is my book.")
  2. Þat í þínó bókar. ("That is your book.")
  3. Lisir míná bók. ("You have my book.")
  4. Lisó þíná bók. ("I have your book.")
  5. Lisó síná bók. ("I have my [own] book.")
  6. Lisir síná bók. ("You have your [own] book.")
  7. Lisó esá bók. ("I have his book.")
  8. Lizi síná bók. ("He has his [own] book.")
  9. Lizi esá bók. ("He has his [someone else's] book.")


As exemplified above (examples 5, 6, and 7), the reflexive possessive pronoun is used when the speaker/subject is possessing their own object and not someone else's object.

[edit] [top]Demonstrative and other pronouns

Gutiskar has 3 demonstrative pronouns. Like the personal pronouns, they are inflected for gender, case and number. Other pronouns, such as interrogative and relative pronouns, likewise decline. Their declension patterns are somewhat irregular - see their individual dictionary entries for the inflection.

The demonstrative pronouns are:


The interrogative pronouns are:


The interrogative pronouns are also used as relative pronouns.

Other pronouns are:

@hashi Yeah, it's "they/them (male)", etc. The distinction exists in only nominative and accusative anyway. And the neuter gender is used for mixed groups, yep.

I noticed the plural pronouns have gender distinction too. Would this be akin to 'them (males)' etc. What would you use for a generic third person plural? The neuter?
