This is a list of pronouns in Maltese. This includes subject, object, and the possessive. These are used on a daily basis, so don't skip this lesson. We start with the object pronouns such as "I, you, her ..."

I: Jien
You: Int
He: Hu
She: Hi
We: Aħna
You (pl.): Intom
They: Huma

Here are samples to demonstrate how the object pronoun is used in a sentence.

I love you: Inħobbok (S), Inħobbkom (Pl)
She is beautiful: Hi ħelwa
We are happy: Aħna ferħanin
They are dancing: Huma qed jiżfnu

Now we look into the subject pronoun such as "me, him, us, them ...".

Me: Jien, Jiena, Lili
You: Int, Inti, Lilek (S), Intom, Lilkom (Pl)
Him: Hu, Huwa, Lilu
Her: Hi, Hija, Lilha
Us: Aħna, Lilna
You (pl.): Intom, Lilkom
Them: Huma, Lilhom

These are examples to demonstrate how the subject pronoun is used in a sentence.

Give me your phone number: Tini n-numru ċellulari / tat-telefown tiegħek
I can give you my email: Nista' ntik l-indirizz elettroniku tiegħi
Tell him to call me: Għidlu jċempilli
Can you call us?: Tista' ċċemplilna?

We reach now the possessive adjective part, used to refer to thing we possess. Examples: "my, our, their ...".

My: Tiegħi
Your: Tiegħek
His: Tiegħu
Her: Tagħha
Our: Tagħna
Your (pl.): Tagħkom
Their: Tagħhom

Here are samples to demonstrate how the possessive adjective is used.

His email is . . .: L-indirizz elettroniku tiegħu hu...
Our dream is to visit Spain: Il-ħolma tagħna hi li nżuru Spanja
Their country is beautiful: Pajjiżhom sabiħ

This is the possessive pronoun. Used as an alternative to the possessive adjectives above. Instead of saying "It is my dog" you can say "It is mine".

Mine: Tiegħi
Yours: Tiegħek (S), Tagħkom (Pl)
His: Tiegħu
Hers: Tagħha
Ours: Tagħna
Yours (pl.): Tagħkom
Theirs: Tagħhom

These are some examples of the possessive pronoun in a sentence.
