Language: Pronouns

The Selanian language usually doesn't use personal pronouns as a subject, since the verb defines which person is meant. Personl pronouns are usually used as an object.

Another interesting aspect is that personal pronouns and possessive pronouns are connected through possessive adjectives.

Personal Pronouns

Subject personal pronouns usually aren’t required in combination with verbs. They are only used when denoting emphasis. The Selanian language does not differentiate between subject and object personal pronouns.

Possessive Adjectives

Because possessive pronouns are constructed from possessive adjectives in the Selanian language, the possessive adjectives are shown here first. Possessive adjectives are constructed by adding the suffix –r to the personal pronoun.
