Pronouns list

I think that it would be easier to learn the greek pronouns, if there was a list, so that they all are in the same place for students to look at.

You are
He is
She is
It is

We are
You are
They are

ofcourse, this may not be really correct pronoun wise, but you get the idea. It would be easier for us students if the greek pronouns were set up like this in one place, so that you as a student can clearly see the right singular and pural form for his, hers etc.

Thanks for a great website!

  A table of the subject (nominative) pronouns is already in the Vocabulary section of Lesson 12, where they are first introduced, as is a table for the direct object (accusative) pronouns in the Vocabulary section of Lesson 38, where these pronouns are formally introduced.

However, there was no table for the indirect object (genitive) pronouns, so based on your request, a table of these pronouns has now been added to the Vocabulary section of Lesson 50, where they are formally introduced.

Note that unlike English, Greek often omits subject pronouns, because the subject is clearly indicated by the verb ending, especially in the first or second person. Thus Greeks tend to use subject pronouns only when emphasizing the subject. In your examples, the verbforms είμαι, είσαι, είμαστε, and είστε/είσαστε already imply their respective persons (εγώ, εσύ, εμείς, and εσείς respectively), so the pronoun is normally omitted in speech.
