Albanian Pronouns

Learning the Albanian Pronouns vital to the language. Albanian pronouns include:

  • Personal pronouns (refer to the persons speaking, the persons spoken to, or the persons or things spoken about)

Let's Recapitulate 

When you are talking In Albanian, you can choose to be formal or informal with the person you are talking to. So, there are two options:

-If you want to talk to a family member, friend, or relative, you will use 'ti' (singular 'you')

-If you want to talk to your boss or someone you just met, you will use 'ju' (plural 'you')

We have two ways to say 'they' in the Albanian language. So, we have two options:

-If you want to talk to a group of males or mixed genders, you should use 'ata'

-If you want to talk to a group of females only, you should use 'ato'

As you can see from the table above, there is no 'it' in Albanian. The reason is that we refer to all nouns of animals, objects, or plants as if they were human names. So, we use 'ai' or 'ajo'.
