Persian Subject Pronouns

Similar to English, there are six subject pronouns in Persian that vary in number and
person. These are as follows:



First, in Persian, the use of subject pronouns in optional rather than mandatory
since the person of a verb is marked at the end of verbs. For example, the م at the
end of ميروم clearly signals that the person carrying out the action is I , thereby
making the use of the subject pronoun من redundant.
Secondly, Persian provides with two options when referring to the second person
singular and the third person singular. The pronouns and تو are ايشان the
informal forms of addressing You and They , whereas شما and ايشان are the
formal forms of the same pronouns.
Finally, Persian only has one pronoun form (او ( that corresponds to he, she and it
in English. In other words, Persian has no grammatical gender distinction, in
nouns, pronouns, or adjectives.
