2. VerbsIn Lucian personal pronouns in the basic meaning exist in the singular. The plural form is interpreted as the plural pronouns. Thus ðot 'IInterjection (POS)' in the plural ðit means 'We'. For non-3rd person pronouns all genders are represented:
ðot - Masculine 'I' ðit - Masculine 'We'
ða - Feminine 'I' ðat - Feminine 'We'
ðem - Neuter 'I' ðat - Neuter 'We'
šot - Masculine 'you' šit - Masculine 'you'
ša - Feminine 'you' šat - Feminine 'you'
šem - Neuter 'you' šat - Neuter 'you'
For the third person pronouns the neuter form is the only form that is used.
The neuter forms are generally used with an unspecified/nonspecific/uncertain antecedent.
The neuter 'you' šem also carries the meaning of gender-neutral, indefinite pronoun, meaning roughly "a person".
One cannot help but grow older.
