Personal pronouns

Emphatic or strong forms

Emphatic pronouns are used to emphasise and pronounced with greater stress, they do not have to be dependent on a verb.

Footnotes

  1. In colloquial speech nominative forms may lose their initial ε, the use of an apostrophe in the written form is optional.
    eg Ήρθα 'γώ = I came (and not him).
  2. Accusative forms lose their initial ε when following από or για, no apostrophe is used. The plural forms become monosyllabic and therefore lose the accent.
    eg Για μας = for us.
  3. The final ν is optional, often being used before a following vowel.
