Let us learn Marathi pronouns today. Below chart has the list.


As I would always say, go through the list once. But do not get daunted by the details. When we will start preparing sentence, come back to chart and get the required pronoun.

Difference between आम्ही(AmhI) and आपण(ApaN)

आम्ही(AmhI) is used when listener is not included in referred group.

e.g if a boy went to a party with his family. Then he will tell his friend as

  We went to party  -> आम्ही “पार्टी”ला गेलो  ->  AmhI “party”lA gelo   

Here listeners i.e. friends are not included in the “WE”

 

Same boy will tell to his family member

We went to party -> आपण “पार्टी”ला गेलो -> ApaN “party”lA gelo 

Here the listener  i.e. family member is included in “we”


Other pronouns

************ Learn Articles in Marathi and English*************** 

In English there are three article “a’, “an” and “The”. In Marathi there is no custom of using such articles. 

“This is horse” and “This is a horse” will be translated in Marathi same way “हा घोडा आहे”(hA ghoDA Ahe )

“This is ant” and “This is an ant” will be translated in Marathi same way “ही मुंगी आहे” ( hI muMgI Ahe )

The Sun”, “The moon” will be translated as if written just “sun”, “moon” without article “The” i.e. सूर्य (sUrya), चंद्र(chaMdra)
