      Ye an Ah are really guid friends.
  2. seicont person singular possessive pronoon yers
    • Díí naaltsoos éí ni.
      This beuk is yers.

Uissage notes[eedit soorce]

The verb in Navajo incorporates information aboot person, an miny sentences mey sicweys nae hae explicit independent pronoons. For instance:

  • Hooghandi naniná.
  • Ni éí hooghandi naniná.

Baith sentences are grammatically complete, an mean essentially the same thing: ye are at hame. The verb naniná is in the seicont-person form, so the pronoon can be safely omittit, as in the first sentence. This is seemilar tao pronoon drappin in other leids whaur the verb specifees person, sic as Spaingie. Meanwhile, the expleecit uise o ni in the seicont sentence emphasizes that the speaker is talkin aboot ye. This can be thocht o as aboot equivalent tae the uise o emphasis in Scots: while the first sentence comes athort as ye're at hame, the seicont ane is mair lik ye, ye're at hame.
