107 – Personal pronouns in the Instrumental


In the course of the last few 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:

я – мной (I)
ты – тобо́й (you singular and informal)
он – им / ним (he)
она – е́ю / ей / не́й* / не́ю* (she)
оно – им / ним* (it)
мы – на́ми (we)
вы – ва́ми (you plural and formal)
они – и́ми / ни́ми* (they)

* use these pronouns with prepositions


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.
