Lesson 2: Personal Pronouns

Kurdish pronouns are simpler than their English counterparts. There is no difference between subjective and objective personal pronouns. This means that whether the person is the subject or object of the sentence makes no difference.

You'll notice that there is a special pronoun for the plural you which makes things clearer, but only one for he/him, she/her and it which muddies the waters a bit.

























KurdishEnglish
min I/me
toYou
ewHe/him, She/her, It
ȇmeWe/Us/us
ȇwe plural you
ewanThey/them

Still not too sure on the pronunciation of both "u"s z and ' - could you elaborate a little more. Great site though.
