Generally speaking, Like English, Latvian pronouns can be used instead of nouns. For example, you can use the pronoun "she" instead of saying that "Julie speaks four languages" and that "she speaks four languages." Learning the Latvian pronouns shown below is essential for the language. Latvian pronouns include:

  • Personal pronouns (referring to the person speaking, or the things or persons spoken about, the persons spoken to. For e.g., you, I, she, he, it, they, we, me, her, him, them, and us).
  • Relative pronoun. (a pronoun that heads an adjective clause. E.g., whom, which, whose, who, that)
  • Indefinite pronouns (do not have a specific familiar referent. For e.g., everybody everyone, everything, many, few, somebody)
  • Reflexive or reciprocal pronouns (in which the verb's subject is acting on the verb's object. E.g., "Mary and John love themselves" or "Mary and John love each other").
