Lesson 049

Personal pronouns in the Instrumental

In the course of the last two lessons we have learned how to form the Instrumental case with Russian nouns. Today we will have a look at the personal pronouns in the Instrumental case.

Here is how they change in the Instrumental case:

Nominative Instrumental
я мной
ты тобо́й
он им / ним
она́ е́ю / не́ю (ей / ней)
оно́ им / ним
мы на́ми
вы ва́ми
они́ и́ми / ни́ми

Remember: use the pronouns that start with Н- after prepositions.

Examples:

Ты пойдёшь со мной?
Will you go with me?

Я пе́ред тобо́й ни в чём не винова́та.
I’m not guilty of anything toward you.

Мы им горди́мся.
We are proud of him.

Наде́юсь, с ней ничего́ не случило́сь.
I hope nothing happened to her.

Он у́чится вме́сте с на́ми.
He studies with us.

С ва́ми всё в поря́дке?
Is everything ok with you?

У меня́ с ни́ми хоро́шие отноше́ния.
I have good relations with them.
