вам (vam) (personal)

  1. (dated) full form of the second-person plural pronoun in the dative case, used as the indirect object of a verb; to you, for you, you
    Вам двамата съобщиха ли новината?
    Vam dvamata sǎobštiha li novinata?
    Was the news communicated to you two?

The full dative form is considered outdated and is usually substituted by the preposition на (na) and the accusative form:

На вас двамата съобщиха ли новината?
Na vas dvamata sǎobštiha li novinata?
Did they inform you two of the news?
