German Pronouns
on March 26, 2017

German pronouns are similar to English pronouns, so this post should make sense to English speakers. That said, there is one major point of difference between German pronouns and English pronouns. Because there are four grammatical cases in German, there are different versions of German pronouns.

A summary of German personal pronouns for the nominative, accusative and dative cases is provided below:

Nominative

Accusative

Dative

Ich I

mich me

mir (to) me

du you (inf. sing.)

dich you

dir (to) you

Er he, it

ihn him, it

ihm (to) him, it

sie she, it

sie her, it

ihr (to) her, it

es it

es it

ihm (to) it

wir we

uns us

uns (to) us

ihr you (inf. pl.)

euch you

euch (to) you

sie they

sie them

ihnen (to) them

Sie you (formanl, sing. & pl.)

Sie you

Ihnen (to) you


In addition to the pronouns above, German also has reflexive pronouns, as described below:
