Northern Sami edit
- oneself (myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves, themselves)
- Mun ieš dahken dan.
- I made it myself.
- Mii ieža dagaimet dan.
- We made it ourselves.
Usage notes edit
Ieš is used to modify a subject. For dual and plural subjects, the form ieža is used.
For use as a pronoun rather than a subject modifier, a possessive suffix must be added. These pronoun forms have no nominative form, the accusative is used as lemma.
