Wheelock Chapter 11 Personal Pronouns Personal pronouns are used in place of nouns that designate particular persons, from the point of view of the speaker . So, the first person means the speaker, the second means the person addressed by the speaker, and the third person indicates the person or thing the speaker is talking about. Since these pronouns are used as substitutes for nouns , they are generally used just like their nouns would be (eg in the different cases). First and Second Person These are irregular in form, but similar to one another. We’ve seen some of these before. 1 st Sg 2 nd Sg 1 st Pl 2 nd Pl Nom ego nōs vōs *Gen* meī tuī nostrum vestrum nostrī vestrī Dat mihi tibi nobīs vobīs Acc nōs vōs Abl nobīs vobīs *NB, this is very important!: Genitives of the first and second person (singular and plural) were NOT used to indicate possession ! [To convey this, the Romans used the possessive adjectives we’ve already learned (meus, a, um; tuus, a, um; noster, -tra, -trum; vester, -tra, -trum)]
