The pronouns beginning with “

” are called the definite accusatives and are less
often used than the others. When they are, it is generally at the end of sentences (as
opposed to the others – they are generally used at the start). For instance, in the sentence “I
went to the shops with them”, “I” is the pronoun, “them” is the definite accusative. These
particular pronouns are formed by adding the pronominal suffix (see “Lesson 14 - Nouns
Part 2”) to the sign of the definite accusative “”.

Interrogative Pronouns:

The addition of the definite article in front of a pronoun introduces a questioning tone. For
example –

WordTranslation

this?

is it new?

In addition, some dedicated words perform this function –

WordTranslation

who?

what?

In Modern Hebrew, questions are made explicit by the addition of the question mark.

The Relative Pronoun:

The word “

” is translated as “which”. It joins a subordinate clause to the rest of the

sentence. For example, “

” (the horse which is infront). It has a

abbreviated form “”, that behaves like an inseparable preposition –

”.
