Personal Pronouns: object forms.
me, you, him, her, us, you, them
The second person does not have separate masculine (m) and feminine(f) forms
for both Singular(S) and Plural (P). The third person plural also has the
same form for both masculine and feminine genders. Third person singular
has different form
Person Singular Plural
1. yt = me ynet = us
2 (m) kut = you entet = you
2 (f) kut = you entet = you
3(m) nit = him nat = them
3 (f) nrti = her nat = them
Example 2.1 yt = me
yt enti enkeldekule = you love me (Singular, m & f)
yt ni enkelekule = he loves me
yt nri enkeletile = she loves me
yt ent'n enkeldenekule = you love me (Plural)
yt naw enkelenekule = they love me
You can also drop the object (yt) and the meaning does not change,
as in the following sentence:
enkeletile = nri enkeletile = yt nri enkeletile = she loves me
Example 2.2 kut = you, as an object with the verb enkeli (love, like)
kut (an) enkelekunka = I love you (m)
kut (an) enkelekunki = I love you (f)
kut (ni) enkelekuki = he loves you (f)
kut (nri) enkeletiki = she loves you (f)
Usually the subject in the brackets doe not appear in spoken Blin, as in
enkelekunki = I love you (you is for a feminine) or enkelekunka, I love you
(m). The typical marker for the feminine second person is -ki, while -ka is
for masculine second person.
Example 2.3. nit = him
nit enkelekunlu = I love him.
nit enkelekulu = he loves him
nit enkeldekulu = you love him.
nit enkeletilu = she loves him
enkelna = to love;
enkeli = love
