Personal Pronouns in Pashto
A Pronoun that refers to a person, a group of persons, or a thing is called personal pronoun. (e.g., he, she, it, I, we, you, they) In Pashto language, there are more personal pronouns than in English. The other difference is that the personal pronouns in Pashto can be dropped, which means you can omit the personal pronouns from some sentences and the sentence will still convey the same meaning. That is because the verb conjugation in Pashto indicates who the verb is used for. The following are the personal pronouns in Pashto and their explanation.
