Lesson 122

Demonstrative pronouns in the Prepositional case

The audio for the lesson is available at the bottom of the screen under the blue button.

After the personal and possessive pronouns in the Prespositional case that we covered in the previous lessons, today let’s learn Russian demonstrative pronouns in the Prepositional case.

These pronouns are (Nominative – Prepositional):

э́тот – (об) э́том
э́та – (об) э́той
э́то – (об) э́том
э́ти – (об) э́тих

тот – (о) том
та – (о) той
то – (о) том
те – (о) тех

Now let’s practice use of these pronouns. Nouns and pronouns in the Prepositional are highlighted with their prepositions:

Он живёт в э́том до́ме.
He lives in this house.

Я ничего́ об э́том не зна́ю.
I know nothing about it. / I don’t know anything about it.

По́мнишь, как мы ра́ньше гуля́ли по э́той у́лице?
Do you remember how we used to stroll down this street?
