Usage notes

edit
  • Subject (direct) pronouns are most commonly placed after the verb, or the first noun of the nominal predicate that they modify. Pronouns in this position are almost always in their short form (in this case, ko); the full form (ako) may be used to make the sentence sound more formal, or it may be placed before the verb or noun which gives the same effect.
    nikaon ko og mansanasI ate an apple (casual)
    nikaon ako og mansanasI ate an apple (formal)
    ako nikaon og mansanasI ate an apple (formal)
