Personal Pronoun in Hindi Posted by on Feb 26, 2014 in Hindi Language

In Hindi, there are six types of pronouns as I have mentioned in my post on Pronouns in Hindi. Out of those six types of pronouns, in this post I will revisit personal pronoun in Hindi with some more examples.

As we know that the words which are used as substitution of proper or common nouns are called Personal Pronoun. In Hindi, it is called पुस्र्षवाचक सर्वनाम (Purushvaachak Sarvanaam).

Personal pronouns are pronouns used as substitutes for proper or common nouns.

उदाहरण – Udaaharan – Examples:

1.  तुम क्यों नहीं आए थें? (Why did not you come?)
2.  वह भी आया था। (He also came.)
3.  मैं बाजार गई थी। ( I have gone to the market.)
4.  हम कल तुम्हारे घर आयेंगे। (We will come to your house tomorrow.)

Words in bold are पुरूशवाचक सर्वनाम (Personal Pronoun).

This can be further divided into three group according to the first, second or the third person.

1. उत्तम पुस्र्ष (Uttam Purush – First Person) :  which is used by speaker for himself e.g. ‘मैं’ (Main – I),  ‘हम’ (Hum – We)

2. मध्यम पुस्र्ष (Madhyam Purush – Second Person) : which is used for addressing a second person e.g. ‘तू’ (Tu – You (Informal)), ‘तुम’ (Tum – You (Informal)), ‘आप'(Aap – You (Formal))

3. अन्य पुस्र्ष (Anya Purush – Third  Person) : which is used for addressing a third person e.g. ‘वह’ (Vah – He/She), ‘वे’ (Ve – The)
