In the previous post, we saw that in Marathi special forms of pronouns are appended with a preposition.

The preposition “To” in English is ला ( lA ) in Marathi. But preposition “To” is handled a bit differently in Marathi.
Special forms are created incorporating ला ( lA ). So no need to add ला ( lA ) again.
e.g. “to him” in English is त्याला ( tyAlA ) in Marathi.
Notice this special form already has ला ( lA ) in it. So no need to add ला ( lA ) again.

So full sentence will be
Give it to him -> हे त्याला दे ( he tyAlA de )

Below table shows these special form for all pronouns

Bring water to these: ह्यांना पाणी आण (hyAMnA pANI AN )
Bring water to Peter: पीटरला पाणी आण (pITaralA pANI AN )

The pronoun for “self” is स्वतः (svatH) and its सामान्य रूप (sAmAnya rUp) is same i.e. स्वतः (svatH). So with the preposition “To” form is स्वतःला(svatHlA)
