Personal Pronouns

Pronouns are inflected for person, number and case. No gender distinctions are made for the third person singular: he and she are both translated in Cebuano as siya.

The three cases are absolutive, ergative and oblique.

Absolutive Ergative

1st person singular ako ko* nako ko ako, akoa kanako nako
2nd person singular ikaw ka nimo mo imo, imoha kanimo nimo
3rd person singular siya niya iya,iyaha kaniya niya
1st person plural inclusive kita ta nato to ato, atoa kanato nato
1st person plural exclusive kami mi namo mo amo, amoa kanamo namo
2nd person plural kamo mo ninyo inyo, inyoha kaninyo ninyo
3rd person plural sila nila ila, ilaha kanila nila

* - Ta only when the object is the second person singular, i.e., ka, mo, etc. For example, Nakita ta ka, NOT *Nakita ko ka.
