[comments] xrqlessonslesson 3 Pronouns follow a CV syllable structure or a CVC structure.
In Xerq there are 4 Grammatical person 1st, 2nd, 3rd animate, and 3rd inanimate with each having a singular and Plural form. The vowel tells you what person it is example:
1st person i
2nd person ɛ
3rd person animate u
3rd person inanimate ə
The consonant says whether it is singular (q) or plural (ɣ).
The consonant q is added to the end to make it possessive.
Pronouns can have either be subject or patient. There is no subject marker but the patient marker is f (ɰ)
There are no official gendered pronouns. For example if you want to say she/her you place the 3rd person animate word (r qu) right before the word for woman (1vw qaɣin) to make r 1vw qu qaɣin. Literally They (woman). This can also be done for he/him ( r 1iw qu qaɰyn). These are only for those who wish to be specific.
