Back to basics - printable resources for object pronouns


Yesterday's post was about subject pronouns. In this post we will look at their counterpart - object pronouns.

Subjects are what the sentence is about.
Objects are what is affected by the action of the subject.

It is important to know the difference between subject pronouns and object pronouns in Hebrew or else you're going to end up sounding a bit like this:

"You spoke to she?"

"They saw he yesterday"

"Him argued with them"

The two triangles below include all of the object pronouns. The first triangle is יחיד - singular:

אותי - I
אוֹתְךָ - you (masculine - i.e. one man)
אוֹתָךְ - you (feminine - i.e. one woman)
אותו - him
אותה - her

The second triangle is רבים - plural:

אותנו - we
אתכם - you (masculine - i.e. a group of men)
אתכן - you (feminine - i.e. a group of women)
אותם - them (masculine - i.e. a group of men)
אותן - them (feminine - i.e. a group of women)

I am going to use the verb לְהַזמִין - to invite to give some examples of using both subject pronouns and object pronouns.

אני הִזְמַנְתִּי אותם

I invited them (m)

היא הִזְמִינָה אותי

She invited me

אנחנו הִזְמִינוּ אותו

We invited him

In the comment section below can you give some examples using subject pronouns and object pronouns. You can use  לְהַזמִין - to invite like I have or choose a new verb!
